Favorite Part About Being a Doctor
"Helping someone improve their health or alleviate their anguish, that's the best role I have."

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.”

Dr. Fierro's Philosophy of Care

Dr. Fierro’s philosophy as a doctor goes back to a lesson as old as time. “I treat people like I would want to be treated,” he says. “If the roles were reversed, and I was the patient, I think about what I would want from my doctor.”

He particularly enjoys the responsibility of being his patients’ confidant for all their healthcare concerns.

“I like the process of getting to know my patients and getting to the core issue,” he says. “To figure out what’s wrong and the best solution, you have to be willing to listen and pay attention. That trumps all the medication I could prescribe.”

Dr. Fierro: Beyond the Exam Room

Dr. Fierro’s parents immigrated to the United States from Italy. He grew up in Richmond and returned to the river city after residency.

“Coming from an Italian family, the first son always comes home to be close to his parents,” he says. 

A devoted family man, he loves spending time with his three children and five grandchildren. He is also an avid fan of college sports, loves to read, and exercises regularly.
