James A. Slater, MD New Canaan Medical Group 173 East Avenue New Canaan, CT 203.972.4215 DR. JAMES SLATER has always put his patients first. After Tufts, he graduated from New York Medical College, receiving the

coveted school award for his accomplishments in community and preventative medicine. His postdoctoral training included an internship at New York Medical College/Flower Fifth Avenue hospital and a residency at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota. He was among the first in the state to recognize that health insurance was depriving patients of sorely needed services and time. Thus, in 2005 his innovative concierge medical practice emerged, combining accessibility and patient advocacy with premier quality medicine. “Giving patients the luxury of time to share their medical issues and concerns is a great privilege.”

American Board of Internal Medicine since 1996.

practicing in New Canaan ever since. “I was fortunate enough to return to the community that I was raised in,” says Dr. Hasapis. In 2010 Dr. Hasapis opted for a new practice model referred to as private-pay or concierge medicine. “I felt that I was being pushed by third-party payers to see more patients and spend less time with each one; it was impossible for people to see me when they needed to.” The smaller practice size enables him to spend more time with each patient. “My patients have my cell number and email, and I encourage them to use them. It makes for a much different experience; I love it, and so do my patients.”
