DR. Jay D’Orso practices as a “Med/Peds” physician, which requires dual specialty training and board-certification in each specialty of internal medicine and pediatrics. This unique background allows him to provide in-depth care to patients of all ages and multiple generations within families. Born in Norwalk, he spent much of his childhood in Fairfield County. He attended Villanova University and the Medical College of Pennsylvania (now Drexel University College of Medicine). He completed his internship and residency in Internal Medicine and Pediatrics at Shands Hospital at the University of Florida in Gainesville. “I always wanted to be a small-town, primary care doctor,” says Dr. D’Orso. As a Med/Peds practitioner, he offers comprehensive health care for newborns, babies and children, as well as for adolescents and adults. At Western Connecticut Medical Group-Ridgefield, an affiliate of Western Connecticut Health Network, he participates with most insurance plans and provides meaningful, long-term continuity of care for his patients. His practice has “compassionate, highly qualified doctors and staff who work very well as a team to conveniently meet all patient needs.”
