About Dr. Fierro
“The secret to a healthy life isn’t rocket science,” Dr. Anthony Fierro says. “Keep your weight down. Use your muscles. Get your heart rate up. Eat right. Rest. Think good thoughts.” And as a family medicine doctor in Richmond, VA, Dr. Fierro knows his job is to help people develop, implement, and maintain these healthy habits.
“But everyone still gets sick at some point,” he says. “And that’s when empathy and knowledge kick in to help them get better. You have to pay attention. You have to have your heart in it as a doctor.”
Dr. Fierro graduated from the University of Virginia’s School of Medicine in 1976 and completed his residency at Roanoke Memorial Hospitals. He then practiced on his own for 40 years and will join PartnerMD in early 2021.
“One thing I learned during COVID-19 is that people don’t just deserve a better relationship with their doctor, they need it,” Dr. Fierro says. “That’s why I decided now was the time to join PartnerMD. Having a deeper relationship with a doctor who has the time to actually talk about your life and your goals is so important to one’s health. I’m excited to continue to offer that level of care at PartnerMD.”
