Bennington Family Practice

Bennington Family Practice will be closing its doors on November 25, 2015. That will be our last day of business at the 339 Dewey Street location. The Medfusion Patient Portal will not be supported after that date, also. Thank you for making use of the portal. We have enjoyed conferring with you via this unique tool.

Dr. Edd Lyon is retiring from medical practice. Dr. Barbara Raskin is moving her practice on December 7th to the Southwestern Vermont Medical Center’s (SVMC’s) new Pownal campus, located at 7237 Route 7. Mr. Paul Graether, P.A., will be moving his practice to Mount Anthony Primary Care in Bennington, starting on December 1, 2015.

Patients transferring to the Pownal practice may schedule an appointment with Dr. Raskin, or Dr. Mike Welther or Dr. Robert Tarnas, by calling the Pownal office at (802) 681-2780. Please call them to arrange for transfer of your medical records, also.

Mr. Graether’s patients may call Mount Anthony Primary Care to make arrangements to have their medical records transferred or to make an appointment. Their telephone number is (802) 447-2343.

If you would prefer to transfer your medical care to another provider, please indicate your preference on the record release form previously mailed to you, and return it to Bennington Family Practice before November 25th. Any request for records after November 25 should be addressed to the Southwestern Vermont Medical Center Health Information Services, Attn: Release of Information, 100 Hospital Drive, Bennington, VT 05201. SVMC will be the custodians of all Bennington Family Practice patient records as of November 25, 2015.

We wish you well in your health care journey, and we thank you for your many years of faithful support of Bennington Family Practice.
