Carl “Trey” Dobson, MD
Emergency Medicine

BS in physics from The University of the South
MS in geology from the University of Wyoming
MD from the University of Tennessee

“My wife and I knew we wanted to live in a small town where there is a devotion to local agriculture. I entered Southwestern Vermont Medical Center and was amazed to see such a well-equipped emergency department. From fiber-optic intubation to the quality of the personnel, I recognized right away that SVMC offered something special. I found the hospital’s culture to be very supportive on all levels and the patient care to be superior.”

“I walk through the woods to get to work everyday. My wife, Amy, and sons, 4-year-old Charlie and 2-year-old Chase, love to walk over to visit. I don’t know where else I could find the first-class medical facility and quality of life that I have found here in Bennington.”

Endocrinology

David Gorson, MD, FACE
Endocrinology

BS in biology from Franklin and Marshall College

MD from Pennsylvania State University

"I finished my fellowship in endocrinology at Mt Sinai Hospital in New York, and my wife and I moved to Florida, her home state. Soon, we realized we wanted to be in a smaller community. We missed the seasons, so we returned to the Northeast. I really wanted to practice where I could make a difference. In Florida, there were five other endocrinologists on the same floor of my medical office building. When I moved here in 1992, I was the third endocrinologist in Vermont."

"I have most everything I could wish for here. SVMC has a really solid medical staff, especially for a small community hospital. Because we are reasonably close to Albany, I can attend Endocrine conferences there, and I hold a Clinical Assistant Professorship in the Division of Endocrinology at Albany Medical College. I enjoy teaching the residents and fellows there. I've been privileged to introduce insulin pumps and bone densitometry to our rural community. And, my wife and I enjoy our rural lifestyle only a few hours from major cities."

Pediatrics

Michael Thwing, MD
Pediatrics

MD from the Pennsylvania State College of Medicine. Chief Resident in Pediatrics at Tripler Army Medical Center in Honolulu, Hawaii.

“My wife, Ninna, and I have a three-year-old, Molli and a two-month old son, Elliott, so we know what it's like to be parents of young children who are younger.”

“SVMC really appealed to me because of its size and the reputation of its medical and nursing staffs. I was impressed that everyone seemed happy to be doing waht they're doing. And Drs. Luloff and Mann of SVMC Pedaitrics made me feel at home right away.”

Elizabeth Warner MD
General Surgery

Elizabeth Warner MD
General Surgery

BS in Human Development from Cornell University
MD from Albany Medical College

The newest member of SVHC's general surgery team, Elizabeth Warner recently joined SVHC after completing her residency at Georgetown University Hospital in Washington, DC.

"I chose to practice at Southwestern Vermont because I believe I can practice at the standards that I want to have in my professional career and live in a beautiful community that is the kind of place where I want to raise my family.

The physicians here make it a priority to keep up with the standards of care. And the hospital has really shown a commitment to staying at the forefront of technology. I can do advanced laparoscopic procedures that I’d be able to do in the university setting as well. There’s also a real sense of collegiality here between specialties and with nursing, which is very important to me and really has a positive impact on patient care.

The environment here is uncommonly supportive of new physicians and extremely warm and collegial. I don’t feel like I left behind anything when I left the big city. The kind of care we’re offering here could stand up against a bigger hospital anywhere."
