I would like to extend my condolences to the family of Dr. Biondino. It was a pleasure and an honor to know him. He was a wonderful man and an excellent physician. I got to know Dr. B during my 29 year tenure as a Microbiology tech at MidState Medical Center aka Meriden-Wlfd Hospital/Veteran's Memorial. After my tenure I was one of Dr. B's many patients, as well as my mother, sister and cousin. He treated us like we were part of his family. We traveled from Bristol to Wallingford. I will always remember how he would tell jokes to make me more relaxed during my surgery. As with all of my family members who have passed, I will never forget Dr. B. He will always be in my prayers.
