As someone with chronic health issues, knowing that I have Dr. Finger in my corner as I search for new and innovative ways to treat my co-morbid conditions is invaluable. I have never had this kind of medical support and attention before. I can't imagine going back to the way it was before.
My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...
My personal health has improved as a result of these additional wellness resources. My family history includes diabetes, coronary disease, cancer and obesity. After learning more about how to reduce these risks by incorporating healthier eating and exercise into my daily routine, I was able to lose 30 pounds and maintain it for the past 5 years. Now, I have identified even more preventive opportunities with the help of the MDVIP Wellness Program and Cleveland Heart Lab.
Together we can create your own success story! Whether your goal is to improve eating or exercise habits within a busy lifestyle, prevent diabetes or heart disease based on enhanced test results, learn new strategies to improve your quality of life with chronic health problems or just maintain your current healthy lifestyle going forward – we can do more together. My MDVIP-affiliated practice, often compared to a concierge medicine practice, also offers conveniences like same- and next-day appointments.
As a dual board-certified physician in family medicine and obesity medicine, I have been helping patients in the North Central Connecticut towns of Enfield, Somers, Stafford, Ellington, East Windsor, Windsor, Windsor Locks, Suffield, South Windsor, Manchester, Vernon and Tolland for the past 15 years. I have been voted the North Central News’ Top Doctor every year since 2014. I am currently an attending physician at Trinity Health of New England – Johnson Memorial Hospital and community physician for Eastern Connecticut Health Network – Rockville and Manchester Hospitals.

Since becoming a member of MDVIP, DR Fignar is always available & caring. He is there to respond to any inquiry on mom & she just loves the attention.

I am truly fortunate to be part of this program. Dr. Fignar and his staff are caring and professional.
I love the fact my my physician is in practice to preserve one's health and help to mitigate future disease/medical conditions. I often feel many physicians are in the business to treat the sick, but not focusing on getting or preserving one's health. I thoroughly appreciate his ability to spend time with me and answer my questions. I also very much like the MDVIP messaging aspect so I can… See more
