MIDDLEBURY-The Porter Hospital Cardiology practice significantly expanded, both in terms of clinical hours and specific outpatient services, with the arrival of Dr. Sanjay Bose this month.
"We are extremely excited to welcome Dr. Bose to our community, as well as gratified by the opportunity to offer a full-time/full-service Cardiology Program for our local patients and in support of the work of our primary care physicians," said Porter cardiologist Dr. Andrea Fossati. "Dr. Bose will be seeing patients here in our Porter campus office 4 days each week, and also will be working 1 day each week at Fletcher Allen in the Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory with our patients."
According to Fossati, Bose will bring to Porter Hospital new expertise and the ability to perform both non-invasive and invasive cardiology services that our current Porter Cardiology practice does not offer. "This will be tremendously convenient for our local patients," Fossati said.
Bose, a resident of Shelburne, has completed Interventional Cardiology Fellowships at New York Methodist Hospital. He completed his General Cardiology Fellowship training from Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center and Norwalk Hospital in Connecticut .
In addition to his board certification in general cardiology and nuclear cardiology, Bose is board eligible in interventional cardiology.
For Bose's arrival at Porter in mid-September, the hospital completed a renovation project to expand and improve its Cardiology Services and ancillary testing.
Information about these new services and appointments can be made by calling Porter Cardiology at 382-3443.
