Thank you Dr. Fumo for taking such good care of my mother in law. Unfortunately we lost her the last week of October. She always spoke very highly of you. It was a pleasure to meet you and your team when I brought her to some of her follow ups and chemo treatments. You took wonderful care of her and our family is very appreciative for your kindness and empathetic bedside manner especially when she decided to stop treatment. We miss her so dearly. It does help a bit to know she had the very best care. All my best to you.

Dr. Fumo is the man, it only took one visit with him to figure out what was wrong with me whereas I have seen multiple doctors over the years who couldn’t give me an answer. A big thank you to my primary care physician Sue Sandor who recommended and sent me to Dr. Fumo. Now I have recommended and send people to him as well maybe Yale can learn some thing from Hartford Hospital and their doctors. Thank you Dr. Fumo and staff.
