What Do the Doctors Say?
Andrew Tremblay, MD a Family Medicine specialist and primary care doctor at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Keene has the distinction of being a practicing physician in Keene as well as growing up and attending school in Keene. Dr. Tremblay says of Medical Home "We are very excited about the concept of Medical Home. It allows us to deliver the highest quality of care using the most current evidence-based aspects of medicine, and most importantly, it allows us to do this in a personal and patient-centric manner that brings Primary Care back to its grass roots."
Family physician and Family Medicine Department Chair, Leslie Pitts, MD is also a strong proponent of Medical Home and has been intimately involved in its planning and implementation at CMC/DHK. Notes Dr. Pitts, "At a time when medicine is becoming increasingly complex and expensive, the need for listening, coordinating patient concerns or test results, or just offering practical medical advice is greater than ever. The Medical Home model is a new way to deliver primary health care. Together the care team is uniquely positioned to handle most basic medical needs and concerns, to help coordinate specialty care, and connect with health resources in our community. We believe this model will allow us to sustain primary care practice in Cheshire County so as to continue providing our patients with continuing high quality and high reliability care."
