burnetteJordan D. Burnette, DO

University of Virginia, BA
Edward Via Virginia College of Osteopathic Medicine, DO

I was born and raised in a little Appalachian town called Galax, VA where old-time music and fine mountain cooking created a sense of love for my family and community that I always cherish.

I brought that love with me to the University of Virginia, where I majored in Human Biology (a mix of biology, public health and bioethics) and minored in Anthropology. At UVA, I found mentors early on that helped me decide on a career in underserved medicine. That led me to move to Blacksburg, VA, study osteopathic medicine at VCOM, and happily commit myself to family medicine with the National Health Service Corps.

After my interview with LGH, I was finally drawn out of Virginia by the passion and kindness of the faculty and staff, along with their strong training in obstetrics, addiction medicine, and care for both rural and urban vulnerable populations.

In my free time, I love hiking, cycling, kayaking, and pretty much anything else outdoors, trying new recipes, and spending time with my better-half, Romina. I am so excited to be starting my journey as a family physician here and seeing what all Lancaster has to offer!


carrPatricia Carr Reese, MD, MPH

College of William and Mary, BS
The Ohio State University College of Public Health, MPH
George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences, MD

I grew up outside of Baltimore, MD, where my family still lives. In college, at William and Mary, I majored in Biology and Religious Studies. W&M is also where I met my awesome husband. He is a veterinarian, which means my extracurriculars throughout medical school involved helping him deliver puppies and calves. Unfortunately that experience doesn't translate very well to humans.

After college, I moved to Bogotá, Colombia for a year to teach English, work on my Spanish and travel. Upon returning to the US, I completed my MPH in epidemiology at OSU and then stayed in Columbus to run a clinical trial in the city's STD clinic. As I imagine would happen to anyone in that context, I fell in love with the topics of sexual health, women's health and family planning. I'm also interested in adolescent medicine and global health.

Outside of medicine, I spend my time with my husband, trying to tire out our two crazy dogs (a German shorthaired pointer and a Jack Russell) which is usually a losing battle. We also enjoy hiking, bird watching and anything that involves traveling and the outdoors.


sorayaSoraya Chanyasubkit, MD

Emory University, BS
University of Maryland School of Medicine, MD

I was born and raised in Silver Spring, MD. From pre-k to high school, I remained within a mile radius of my home, so I made a break for Atlanta, GA to complete my bachelor’s degree in Neuroscience and Behavioral Biology and a minor in Spanish at Emory University.

I returned to the DMV area after college to spend a year with AmeriCorps in Washington D.C., teaching sexual education--from condoms to consent, and everything in between, to 6th-9th graders. I then migrated a couple miles up I-95 to receive my medical degree from the University of Maryland in Baltimore. Family medicine best captured my desire to be an advocate and an ally for my patients and the breadth of “womb to tomb” medicine fit my attention span.

Outside of medicine, I enjoy life’s necessities: eating, reading, watching Thai game shows, walking, and not being sedentary – all of which I hope to continue doing with my new co-residents in the lively city of Lancaster. I also play the Thai xylophone (ranad) and I picked up juggling while in medical school.


cotterAnne R. Cotter, MD, MPH

Georgetown University, BS
UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health, MPH
University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Medicine, MD

I am from the small town of Middleburg, VA and grew up riding horses, floating down creeks, and working odd jobs.

I completed my undergraduate studies at Georgetown University where I thought I was going to be a marine biologist, and studied the population health of dolphins. However, I learned that humans talk back and are much more interesting! This took me down south to the land of the pines for medical school at UNC (and an added bonus year to complete my Master's in Public Health).

In medicine, I enjoy full-spectrum rural medicine and integrating population health theories and strategies on a local level. Outside of medicine, I love adventuring, food, books, baking, not getting sunburned, sleep, crazy socks, exclamation marks, and the occasional Netflix binge! I'm excited to explore and make Lancaster my new home!
 


DewaltLaura E. Dewalt, MD

Penn State University, BS
University of Kentucky College of Medicine, MD

I grew up on a small farm in Easton, Pennsylvania. My brother and I were avid 4-H’ers. We raised hogs and sheep, which we showed at county fairs and the PA Farm Show. It was through caring for livestock animals that I first became interested in medicine.

I attended Penn State University, where I majored in Biobehavioral Health. My undergraduate studies sparked my passion for primary care and public health. I knew that I wanted to help people in my community make wise health decisions to prevent disease.

After graduation, I set out to find a rural medical school program. I found the perfect match for me in the University of Kentucky’s Rural Physician Leadership Program. Completing the vast majority of my clinical clerkships in Appalachian Eastern Kentucky was a rewarding and eye-opening experience. While in Kentucky I met my husband, Wayne. We both found Lancaster to be the perfect place to spend this next chapter of our lives.

I am excited to continue to serve rural communities during residency and strengthen my procedural skills as a resident at LGH. Wayne will be attending Widener University Commonwealth Law School in Harrisburg. We both are happy to be closer to family. During my free time I enjoy cooking and baking, swimming, and watching television.


KirchnerEmily Kirchner, MD, MA

Bryn Mawr College, BA
Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University, MD, MA

I was born and raised in a small town called Beaver in western Pennsylvania. As a child, I wanted to be an author-illustrator and writing the sequel to The Lorax was my life goal. But in the sixth grade, I decided I wanted to be a doctor and was stubborn enough to stick with it.

So I headed east to attend Bryn Mawr College, where I studied history. From there, I attended the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University for my MD and my Master's degree in Urban Bioethics. During med school, I spent a lot of my spare time on conference calls with Students for a National Health Program.

I enjoy reading books, eating French fries, and exploring thrift shops. I believe health care is a human right.


kofflerElizabeth C. Koffler, MD

The Pennsylvania State University, BS
Drexel University College of Medicine, MD

Born and raised in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, I am very excited to start my career at Lancaster General Hospital! I attended The Pennsylvania State University, where I majored in nutrition with a minor in music. Though I started as a full-time music major, I was drawn to medicine as I learned more about the importance of nutrition in the context of disease prevention. I also met my husband, Pete, at Penn State.

After college, I started medical school at Drexel University in Philadelphia and developed a love for family medicine. At Drexel I enjoyed working in the community in both medical and musical capacities.

I am absolutely thrilled to be returning to Central PA to start my career as a family physician. I am interested in many aspects of family medicine including obstetrics, geriatrics, and community and preventative medicine.

Outside of medicine, my favorite activities include hitting the trails for a long run, playing the piano, hiking, cross country skiing, home improvement projects, and relaxing on the beach while my husband is kiteboarding.


loudonGrace Loudon, MD

Bryn Mawr College, BA
Sidney Kimmel Medical College at Thomas Jefferson University, MD

I was born and raised in Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, AKA the Poconos. From the very beginning, all of my arrows pointed toward medicine. My journey to Lancaster incudes an undergraduate degree in Biology from Bryn Mawr College, various cancer research projects, a medical degree from Jefferson, now Sidney Kimmel Medical College, and even more research with the underserved.

Within medicine, my interests range from cradle to grave and chromosomes to populations. I’m so excited for my genuine love of medicine to meet the endless opportunities that LGH provides.

Outside of medicine I enjoy spending time with family and friends, exercise, crafting, trips to the beach, cooking and baking, and playing with my two cats, Miles and Millicent.


Angelica M. Montes, MD

University of Delaware, BS
Sidney Kimmel Medical College at Thomas Jefferson University, MD

I was born in Rhode Island but grew up in Delaware since I was 3. I attended undergrad at the University of Delaware and moved 45 minutes north to Philadelphia for medical school at Jefferson.

Both my parents are from Colombia, so I grew up speaking Spanish surrounded by my large extended family. During my first year at Jefferson I began volunteering at Puentes de Salud Clinic, which is a nonprofit organization that primarily serves South Philadelphia’s Latino immigrant population. Because of Puentes, I fell in love with primary care and patient education. I am interested in health literacy, as well as Latino health care and immigrant health.

I am very excited to be joining the Lancaster General family and to train in full-spectrum family medicine. In my free time I love traveling, trying new foods, going out dancing, hiking, or staying in with friends and family.


mooreCameron G. Moore, MD, MPH

CUNY Baccalaureate for Unique and Interdisciplinary Studies, BS
New York Medical College, MD, MPH

I was raised in Washington state and attended Tacoma School of the Arts, falling in love with travel and experiencing different cultures during an exchange year in Nagpur, India. I followed that love, completing a year of college at Friends World College in Costa Rica where I did an independent study project on the community structures of the Quechua people in the Ecuadorian Amazon. That experience with indigenous peoples led me to spend a year studying with the Babongo people in Gabon.

I continued my love for travel in between managing a counter-culture museum and cafĂ© in the Lower East Side of Manhattan, the Yippie! Museum. I spent time in Lebanon, southern Africa, Hawai’i and back in India.

My experiences with healers all over the world made me want to become a physician and I returned to school through the City University of New York’s Unique and Interdisciplinary Studies program and continued on to medical school at New York Medical College where I met my wonderful significant other, Lisa Brown, who will be completing her OB/GYN residency at Lankenau Medical Center.

My interests in medicine include integrative medicine, underserved care, public health, addiction medicine and obstetrics. My hobbies outside of medicine include cooking and baking, brewing beer and wine, travel, anything outdoors, board games, reading and hopefully chickens in the near future. I am beyond excited to be joining the amazing community at Lancaster General!


ridoutTrina C. Ridout, MD, MEd

College of William and Mary, BS
University of Southern California, MEd
Virginia Commonwealth University, MD

From one commonwealth to another, I am excited to train in Pennsylvania after spending most of my life in Virginia. I was born when my father was a family medicine resident, and he and my mother raised my older sister and me in beautiful Virginia Beach, VA.

Thankful for wonderful education in my home state, I attended the College of William and Mary (Go Tribe! Hark upon the gale.) While enrolled in pre-medical coursework, much of my time was devoted to student leadership through the student program board, admissions office, and Greek life. Those endeavors led me to Los Angeles, CA to complete my master’s degree in higher education and work in recruitment and admissions at the University of Southern California (Fight on!)’s public policy school.

My work at USC exposed me to the effects of policy, urban planning, and the built environment on public health. These lessons, alongside growing passions for long distance running, yoga, and nutrition, reignited my interest in medicine and brought me back east for medical school. I also completed my 200 hour yoga teacher training during the transition from education to medicine. Both medicine and yoga are opportunities to empower others to think critically and holistically about their health and wellness.

Training at LGH will provide excellent full-spectrum training and chances to focus on maternity care, sports medicine, and integrative medicine. When not practicing yoga or medicine, you can find me with my husband, Greg, visiting friends and family, exploring the nearest body of water, cooking, hiking/running, watching soccer, or playing/listening to music.


robertsonKevin Robertson, MD

Georgia Institute of Technology, BS
Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University, MD

I was born in Maine in the middle of a blizzard, but I was quickly transplanted to the South. Until residency, all of my education was in Georgia: from kindergarten to high school, on to undergrad at Georgia Tech, and most recently the Medical College of Georgia.

Residency in family medicine offered an opportunity to explore outside of my home state, and Lancaster lured me north with the strength of its residency program, the friendliness of its people, and the beauty of its countryside. My interests in medicine are broad, ranging from pediatrics to geriatrics, adult medicine to obstetrics, and mental health to sports medicine. Gender and sexual minority health in particular has been my passion, particularly transgender care.

For relaxation, I usually run, bake, cook, crochet, or read. I look forward to settling into the Lancaster community and exploring Pennsylvania!


wangAdrian Wang, MD

University of Nevada, Las Vegas, BS
Pennsylvania State University College of Medicine, MD

I was born in Indiana, but grew up and spent most of my life in the city of Las Vegas, Nevada. There, I attended the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV), where I obtained a BS in Biology.

I then traveled all the way to Hershey, Pennsylvania to attend medical school at the Penn State College of Medicine. This is where I discovered my love for family medicine, and how it provides me with all of the clinical diversity and relationships that I desired in my life and career.

My clinical interests include full spectrum care, underserved medicine, in-office procedures, patient advocacy, and medical education. Overall, I just love community service, teaching, and doing awesome things for others! Outside of medicine, I love to participate in and watch anything sports related, especially basketball, football, and the Penn State Nittany Lions. I also enjoy working on cars, reading, hiking, fishing, and most of all, spending time with my family, friends, and dogs.
