North Coun­try Hos­pi­tal has a New Urol­o­gist

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - New­port, VT

It’s bad enough to be sick, but it’s worse to have to travel when you need med­i­cal care. No longer will most area peo­ple need to ven­ture out­side the re­gion for their uro­log­i­cal needs. North Coun­try Sur­gi­cal As­so­ci­ates is pleased to an­nounce the ar­rival of Cen­giz Esen­ler, MD.

Dr. Esen­ler joins three other sur­geons at the New­port prac­tice which is lo­cated on Med­i­cal Vil­lage Drive on the North Coun­try Hos­pi­tal cam­pus. The other sur­geons are Drs. Larry Sis­son, Mark Mered­ith, and Randall Zuck­er­man. Dr. Esen­ler, who will be see­ing pa­tients in his New­port of­fice on Wed­nes­days, is now ac­cept­ing pa­tients.

“The peo­ple here have been great to work with,” Dr. Esen­ler said. “They have been very ac­com­mo­dat­ing.” He has also en­joyed meet­ing his new pa­tients.

His col­leagues at North Coun­try Sur­gi­cal As­so­ci­ates can’t say enough about their new doc­tor.

“We’re happy to have him here,” Linda Quarmby said. “Dr. Esen­ler is very easy to work with and he is fill­ing a very im­por­tant need in the area.” Linda is the prac­tice manger.

Cer­ti­fied by the Amer­i­can Board of Surgery & Urol­ogy, the doc­tor brings with him a wealth of ex­pe­ri­ence in health­care to North Coun­try. In ad­di­tion to work­ing here, he is on staff at Fletcher Allen Med­i­cal Cen­ter. He is also an as­sis­tant pro­fes­sor of surgery at the Uni­ver­sity of Ver­mont Col­lege of Medicine.

Dr. Esen­ler earned his un­der­grad­u­ate de­gree in bio­chem­istry from McGill Uni­ver­sity in Mon­treal, Que­bec fol­lowed by a grad­u­ate de­gree in bi­ol­ogy from Bowl­ing Green State Uni­ver­sity in Bowl­ing Green, Ohio. He earned his med­i­cal de­gree from the Med­i­cal Col­lege of Ohio in Toledo, Ohio. That was fol­lowed by a res­i­dency in urol­ogy at McGill Uni­ver­sity.

Dr. Esen­ler, who was born in Chicago but grew up in Ohio, was lit­er­ally born into the world of medicine. His fa­ther was a doc­tor of in­ter­nal medicine and his mother was a pe­di­a­tri­cian. “They were a big in­flu­ence on me,” he said. “I was never told or forced to be­come a physi­cian, but be­cause I lived with it I was drawn to it. It was a nat­u­ral pro­gres­sion.” He be­came in­ter­ested in urol­ogy in med­i­cal school.

Urol­o­gists di­ag­nose and treat dis­or­ders of the uri­nary sys­tem in­clud­ing is­sues re­lat­ing to the blad­der, kid­neys, prostate, in­clud­ing uro­log­i­cal can­cers. Dr. Esen­ler also per­forms va­sec­tomies.

As with other health prob­lems, Dr. Esen­ler em­pha­sized that early di­ag­no­sis and treat­ment of uro­log­i­cal dis­or­ders is im­por­tant. And early de­tec­tion of can­cer can mean the dif­fer­ence be­tween life and death. Talk to your pri­mary care physi­cian if you think you could ben­e­fit from Dr. Esen­ler’s ser­vices.

Wel­come to North Coun­try Dr. Esen­ler.
