Michael Krinsky, MD, elected CSMS president
Hartford-area neurologist is second-generation CT physician

(Groton) Michael M. Krinsky, MD, was sworn in on Saturday, Sept. 17, as the 173rd president of the Connecticut State Medical Society. Dr. Krinsky, 63, is a neurologist in private practice in the greater Hartford area who cares for patients at several local hospitals.

“What is good for the doctor is good for the patient; what is good for the patient is good for the doctor,” Dr. Krinsky told the CSMS House of Delegates. “Standing up for the issues that are at the heart of medicine – those that concern the physician-patient relationship – must remain a core mission.

“The solo and small practices that make up Connecticut’s health care landscape are looking to CSMS to do more for them every day as they confront increasing financial pressure from all sides. We will continue to be their advocate and their patients’ advocate.”

Dr. Krinsky’s family has been involved in Connecticut medicine since 1939. He is the son of Charles Krinsky, MD, who served as president of the New London County Medical Association and as vice-speaker of the CSMS House of Delegates. His mother, Bernice, led the women’s group known as the CSMS Auxiliary.

Dr. Krinsky is a past president of the Hartford County Medical Association and he has held numerous committee appointments in organized medicine and through the hospitals where he practices. He has also volunteered his expertise with the Greater Hartford Heart Association, Easter Seals Rehabilitation Center and Multiple Sclerosis Society. Dr. Krinsky resides in the Farmington Valley with his wife, Marcia, and the couple has three grown children.
