RANDOLPH, Vt.— After a highly successful career at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center, cardiologist Bruce Andrus, MD, MS, FACC, FASE is joining Gifford on a full-time basis. Dr. Andrus is looking forward to focusing on rural cardiology and being embedded in the Gifford community.
Dr. Andrus spent close to 20 years as a cardiologist at DHMC. During that time, he also served as a consulting cardiologist at Gifford, providing outreach once a week. For most of his career, Dr. Andrus felt it was important to be involved with the high-tech aspects of cardiology. Now, he wants to focus on clinical cardiology and contribute to optimizing Gifford’s cardiovascular systems of care.
“The patient-physician relationship is very important,” Dr. Andrus said. “It has to be based on mutual respect and trust. I enjoy getting to know people and their families, understanding their backgrounds, and their philosophy towards health care.”
Before his full-time employment at DHMC, Dr. Andrus divided his time between DHMC and White River Junction VA Medical Center. His clinical interests include the prevention, diagnosis, and medical management of cardiovascular conditions.
In his free time, Dr. Andrus enjoys spending time outdoors with family and friends. For more information on the services Gifford provides visit giffordhealthcare.org
