SVMC Urology Welcomes Dr. Donaldson
Dr. Anthony Donaldson.
BENNINGTON — Dr. Anthony H. Donaldson will join SVMC Urology on August 3. A urologist who has a special interest in laparoscopic surgery, Dr. Donaldson has served in the U.S. Navy for the past 10 years. For the last four, he has been the head of the Department of Urology at the Naval Hospital in Jacksonville, Fla.
Dr. Donaldson and his wife, Liz, are both natives of Washington County, N.Y. “We wanted to return to this area when my term in the Navy ended,” he stated. “We missed the sense of community you find in this part of the country, as well as the change of seasons and the beautiful countryside.”
Dr. Donaldson received his medical degree from Dartmouth Medical School and completed his residency in urology at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, N.H. He is certified by the American Board of Urology.
“I was undecided as to what branch of medicine to go into when I entered medical school,” said Dr. Donaldson. “Once I did a rotation in urology, I knew I had found my niche. I enjoy the mixture of surgery and outpatient care you provide as a urologist,” he added. “I get to care for my patients throughout their treatment. That continuity is important to me.
“Even though SVMC is a smaller hospital when compared to those in bigger cities, it is a hospital that is on the cutting edge of medical technology,” said Dr. Donaldson. “I am very impressed with the level of care SVMC offers its community.”
Dr. Donaldson and his wife recently moved to Salem, N.Y., with their two sons, five-year-old Quinn and two-year-old Declan. An active family, they look forward to enjoying the area’s hiking, gardening, snow-shoeing, and cross country skiing opportunities. They are also interested in small-scale farming.
SVMC Urology is located in Suite 110 of the Medical Office Building at 140 Hospital Drive in Bennington. To make an appointment with Dr. Donaldson, call (802) 447-6253.
