Community members are able to meet with a variety of specialists at ECH.
Monthly specialty clinics allow people to meet with a specialist without the inconvenience and expense of having to travel to Plattsburgh or Saranac Lake. A variety of specialty physicians travel to Elizabethtown to meet with many of their Essex County patients in one day.
Specialty clinics are also available for patients requiring follow up after surgery or other procedures. Dr. Byrne, an orthopedic surgeon, is able to perform surgical procedures in Saranac Lake and provide follow up care in Elizabethtown for patients who live locally. Dr. Cassone is able to perform procedures such as colonoscopies at ECH. Patients who visit with these specialists are then able to have many of their required tests performed at the hospital - MRI, mammograms, ultrasound and blood work - saving a great deal of time.
More dates to be poster soon. Thank you.
