Dr. Brigitte Dargis recently joined the staff at Northeastern Vermont Regional Hospital’s Corner Medical office. For the past six years, Dargis practiced as a family practitioner at the White Mountain Community Health Center in North Conway, NH.
Dargis received her BS degree in Exercise Science at Concordia University in Montreal, Quebec in 1985. She went on to earn her MD at the University of Montreal, completing her residency in family medicine at Notre-Dame Hospital in Montreal in 1992.
She and her husband, Mederic Leblanc, a physician as well, were Emergency Room physicians for a year. They then moved to Fermont, Quebec, fourteen hours north of Montreal, where they were family practitioners. It was a remote area, with no specialists in the vicinity, so they dealt with a wide array of health challenges.
In 1997, they moved to New England. Both Mederic and Brigitte worked as Family Physicians at the Coos Country Family Health Services in Berlin, NH for five years. Mederic is now an Emergency Room physician at Weeks Medical Center, where he has been since 2002. In August, 2010, they moved to St. Johnsbury in order to embrace the many opportunities for their children at the Academy, for which they are very pleased.
Dr. Tom Broderick, Medical Director at Corner Medical is very pleased to welcome Dr. Dargis to their practice. “Brigitte is a fine physician. She is very knowledgeable and experienced. She’s a good listener and provides great comfort to her patients.” Dr. Dargis enjoys the pleasant atmosphere, knowledgeable colleagues and collaboration with the providers at Corner Medical.
Drs. Dargis and Leblanc have three daughters; Camille and Laurence are students at St. Johnsbury Academy, while Michele is at The Good Shepherd School. The family enjoys the area immensely, especially attending the girls’ activities.
