MANCHESTER, VT — You would think a man with five children ages five months to seven years old would never get bored. Dr. Joshua C. Samuelson states that avoiding that possibility is the very reason he became a family physician.
            “I enjoy working with patients of all ages, “stated Dr. Samuelson. “I never want to be bored and I know that as a family physician I will always be learning new things.”
            Dr. Samuelson joined the Northshire Campus of Southwestern Vermont Medical Center (SVMC) on August 3. He received his medical degree from the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine and completed his residency at Christiana Care Hospital in Wilmington, Del.
            “When I spoke with Dr. Schwartz about the opening for a physician, I found we had many common interests and values,” said Dr. Samuelson. “I was even more encouraged when I met the entire staff at the Northshire campus,” he added. “Besides exhibiting great medical knowledge, everyone seemed to really enjoy their jobs and the role they play in taking care of their patients. It was a genuineness you don’t find in many medical practices.
            “My wife has family in New England and used to vacation in the area,” he continued. “We were investigating several locations in the Northeast, but we were both impressed with the beauty of Manchester. We pretty-much knew right away that we wanted to live in the area.”
            Dr. Samuelson recently moved to Sunderland with his wife, Kathryn, and their children. The family has a strong interest in sustainable gardening, food co-ops, and the outdoors. They enjoy being outside year-round — hiking, swimming, skiing, and snowboarding.
            “We love being outside and just exploring,” he added. “We’re happy to be in such a beautiful area of the country.”
            SVMC’s Northshire Campus is at 5957 Main Street (Route 7A North) in Manchester Center. Dr. Samuelson is now accepting new patients. To make an appointment, call (802) 362-4440.
