A message from Dr. dos Santos

Dear Patients and Families,

It is with a heavy heart that I announce my departure from Rocky Hill Pediatrics effective August 6th, 2021. This past year certainly has been challenging for all of us, however, for my wife and I, one of the biggest challenges was navigating this pandemic while being so far away from our families. This ultimately prompted our decision to move back to Texas this summer.  While this was not an easy decision for us to make, I know that it is the right decision for our family. 

It is difficult for me to imagine no longer working and caring for patients here at RHP, however, I take comfort in knowing that all of you will continue to receive the amazing care which has been provided to you by Dr. Schwab, Dr. Litwin, Janna, Rachel and the entire RHP staff.  I thank the staff and my amazing partners for their support during this transition.

Dr. Schwab and Dr. Litwin are pleased to announce that Dr. David Muccino will join RHP August 1, 2021. Dr. David Muccino is a well-established and accomplished pediatrician, who ironically enough is returning to his "roots" by coming back to his home state of Connecticut.   He and his fiancée, Kelly, (a former patient of Dr. Fote), are excited to be heading back “home.”  In his spare time, Dr. Muccino enjoys biking, kayaking, hiking, and cooking.  Dr. Muccino also volunteers his time at the Hole in the Wall Gang Camp.

Dr. Muccino graduated summa cum laude from Fairfield University in 2007 and Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine in 2012.  Dr. Muccino completed his residency training at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center.  Currently, Dr. Muccino is a Pediatric Hospice & Palliative Medicine Specialist in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.  In order to ensure a seamless transition, Dr. Muccino will assume Dr. dos Santos’ existing scheduled appointments.

Thank you again for the trust you have placed in me and for providing me the opportunity to care for your children. It has been an absolute pleasure. I am proud of the work I have contributed at RHP and I know that Dr. Muccino will continue in this positive direction.  Dr. Litwin and Dr Schwab are pleased to give their full endorsement of this transition and I am thankful for the opportunity to partner with them over the last five years.
