BENNINGTON — Obstetrician Themarge Small was looking to work in a setting where she could practice medicine with top-rate professionals. And she wanted to feel confident that her patients would be treated with kindness and respect.
“The reputation of the nurses in Women’s and Children’s at Southwestern Vermont Medical Center (SVMC) is outstanding,” stated Dr. Small, “and rightfully so.
“I know that SVMC is one of the finest hospitals in the region. Plus the area offers so many opportunities for enjoying the outdoors. These are some of the reasons I decided to return to Bennington.”
Dr. Small grew up in the area and witnessed firsthand the life of a doctor. “Both my father, Dr. John McLellan, and my grandfather were physicians. In the back of my mind, I always knew I wanted to study medicine.”
Dr. Small made her dream come true when she received her medical degree from the University of California-Los Angeles David Geffen School of Medicine. She completed her residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in New Hampshire.
“I am very grateful to perform a job that I truly love. Assisting mothers so they have a good experience while pregnant and helping to bring new life into the world are real thrills for me,” said Dr. Small. “I also love being a part of my patients’ overall well-being from adolescence through older adulthood.”
Dr. Small recently moved back to the area with her husband John and two daughters, Isabelle and Violet. She has joined SVMC Obstetrics and Gynecology, located in Suite 302 of the Medical Office Building at 140 Hospital Drive in Bennington. For an appointment, call (802) 442-9600.
