BENNINGTON — Internist Dr. David M. Sischy is joining Southwestern Vermont Medical Center (SVMC) as of May 1. Sischy comes to SVHC with more than 25 years experience as a doctor. He received his medical degree from the University of Rochester and is board certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine.

Sischy completed his internal medicine residency at Cleveland Metropolitan Hospital, Case Western Reserve University, and then did a fellowship in hematology at Columbia University and Case Western Reserve University. Sischy is also a member of the American College of Physicians.

Most recently, Sischy practiced as part of a group of nine internists at the University of Rochester. Before that he had his own private practice in internal medicine in the Rochester area. He also taught medical students and residents at the University of Rochester.

Sischy knows the Bennington area well. He and his family have enjoyed southwestern Vermont on vacations for more than 15 years. His son, Adam, attended Williams College.  “We have vacationed here for years,” said Sischy, “and have always enjoyed the cultural and outdoor opportunities of the Bennington area.” 

Sischy comes to SVMC through a somewhat unconventional way. “One weekend I was on call for a colleague and provided some information on a patient to the chief medical officer at SVMC. He told me how a local internist was planning to retire.

“I met with him and other SVMC doctors to talk about practicing in Bennington. I was immediately impressed with their caring attitudes as well as their qualifications. The doctors here truly have a great desire to provide the very best medical care to their patients.  I wanted to be a part of that.”

Sischy and his wife, Linda, have just moved to the Bennington area. Linda is a nurse and together they have a daughter, Ilana, along with their son. “I am looking forward to our first full summer season and all of the opportunities for plays, music, and festivals,” said Sischy.

Dr. Sischy’s office is located in Suite 300 of the Medical Office Building at 140 Hospital Drive in Bennington. To make an appointment, call (802) 447-8650.
