DR. MICHAEL A. CASSETTA, a rheumatologist, and DR. GLENN M. RICH, an endocrinologist, are part of the Trumbull-based Fairfield County Medical Group.
Dr. Cassetta (left), a graduate of the University of Notre Dame and the Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences, treats patients with conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, lupus, osteoarthritis and gout. After completing an internal medicine residency at Saint Barnabas Hospital, he did his rheumatology fellowship at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York. “Effective treatment of these chronic inflammatory and autoimmune disorders requires a long-term partnership among the patient, their rheumatologist and their primary care physician,” he says. He believes building strong relationships with both his patients and their other doctors is vital to helping them deal successfully with these conditions. “I see my relationship as working with my patients, not preaching to them,” he says. “I am a big believer in patient education.”
Dr. Rich (right), a graduate of Cornell University Medical College, treats patients with diabetes, thyroid disease, osteoporosis, adrenal disorders and other metabolic syndromes. He did his internal medicine residency at St. Luke’s Hospital, Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, and his fellowship in endocrinology and hypertension at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School. He enjoys practicing both endocrinology and internal medicine and was honored to have been previously named a “Top Doc” in internal medicine in addition to his “Top Doc” honors in endocrinology.
He has been recognized by both the National Committee for Quality Assurance and the American Diabetes Association for providing quality care to his patients with diabetes. “Diabetes affects the whole body, and proper care requires a team approach, with patient education most important,” he says. “Having a certified diabetic educator on our staff has been a great benefit to our patients.”
