Dr. Friscia completed a residency in internal medicine at Metropolitan Hospital Center in New York City and fellowships in both pulmonary and critical care medicine at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in the Bronx, New York.

She is a strong advocate of preventive care through healthy lifestyle choices and good nutrition and she and her husband, Dennis Fitzhugh, chose to move to Chestertown so she would have the opportunity to practice more general wellness medicine in addition to pulmonary medicine.
