You will find our hours, contact info for the office, emergency numbers the necessary registration forms, and information to make an appointment with Dr. Chris Ingram.

Chris Ingram MDChris Ingram, M.D., is a board certified ER doctor with 12 years experience as an attending physician at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital in New York City. Before becoming the full time doctor-in-residence on Fishers Island in 2011, Chris worked part-time as the Island's doctor through L+M Physicians for 3 years Dr. Ingram makes himself available at all times, should urgent needs arise. This continuity of care has led to improved general health among the year-round population, many of whom now use Fishers Island's doctor as a primary care physician.

Fishers Island's medical practice is part of Northeast Medical Group (NEMG) under the Yale New Haven Health System (YNHHS).
