Dr. Robert M. Burd
It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Dr. Robert M. Burd, a distinguished physician in Bridgeport and Fairfield for 48 years, due to complications from a catastrophic fall he suffered in Sarasota, FL, where he was living with his beloved wife Alice. He was 82.
Dr. Burd joined Dr. Milton Cooper's practice in 1969. With Dr. Cooper, he built up a thriving practice, which is now known as the Medical Specialists of Fairfield. As well as caring for internal medicine patients, he specialized in hematology and oncology. He served as the Chief of the Department of Hematology at St. Vincent's Medical Center for over 20 years and was also affiliated with Bridgeport Hospital.
Dr. Burd practiced medicine the old-fashioned way, by getting to know his patients and really listening to them.
He will be deeply missed by his loving wife Alice of 55 years; his sons, Russell and Stephen; his brother, Murray; and his granddaughters, Hannah and Leah.
