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."

Eric Seyferth, MD
Internal Medicine

Eric Seyferth, MD
Internal Medicine

Why did you go into medicine? I loved science and was good at it and wanted to work in a field based on science. I also wanted to make a tangible difference in people’s lives. Medicine seemed a great way to do both of these things and over the years I continue to get satisfaction from these aspects of medicine. What do you like about being an internist? I really like the long term relationships that I have established with patients. When I walk into an emergency department room to admit a person and she says "I am so glad that you are here", it makes all the difficult aspects of a hectic primary care practice seem worth it. The challenge of narrowing down a diagnosis quickly and efficiently or of diagnosing and managing a difficult and complicated case after multiple steps brings great satisfaction. Seeing someone that I have known for years get better from a treatment prescribed by myself or helping someone die with dignity and without pain give equal satisfaction and meaning to my life. Why did you come to this area? My wife, who is also an internist, and I wanted to settle in a rural community in New England after our training. We both love the outdoors and small-town life. Bennington had a great mix of factory workers and college professors, farmers and professionals and died in the wool Vermonters and flatlanders that seemed down-to-earth and vibrant. We wanted a place where our children would get a great education and they did. We wanted a medical community with a great quality medical staff that got along well and I feel our expectations have been met. We have been here 22+ years and still love it here. What do you enjoy doing in your spare time? Being with my spouse, staying connected with my grown children, bird watching, hunting, shooting sports, woods walking with my dog, tennis, photography, perennial gardening, chicken raising, cooking, reading, Sunday night football with a good friend, mushroom collecting, backyard sugaring. Household Demographics: Married to Sara Reynolds who works as a hospitalist. 3 grown children: Allison, Julia and Elise. One very adoring and intelligent dog, Jackson. One very elderly and affectionate cat, Tigger. Live in the west end of Bennington.
