Berlin, VT – University of Vermont Health Network – Central Vermont Medical Center is excited to welcome Pamela Fadness, MD, to the Family Psychiatry practice in Berlin, joining fellow psychiatrists Rose Ehret, MD and Andrew Koo, MD.
Dr. Fadness graduated from medical school at the State University of New York Health Science Center at Syracuse, now known as Upstate Medical University. While she was enrolled in medical school, she was the first student and helped develop the Rural Medical Education Program within the Department of Family Medicine, SUNY Health Science Center at Syracuse, in conjunction with Canton-Potsdam Hospital. She then went on to complete her residency in psychiatry at the University of Vermont Medical Center, becoming chief resident of psychiatry in July of 2005. She also completed a fellowship in public psychiatry there the following year.
Dr. Fadness has a wide range of experience including everything from inpatient and outpatient settings, private practice, day treatment programs, correctional psychiatry/forensic services and community mental health. She is very comfortable working with clients who suffer from mood and anxiety disorders, post traumatic stress disorder, severe mental illness and, because of her strong family medicine background, those that have concurrent complex medical conditions.
“I believe in a collaborative and patient-centered approach,” says Dr. Fadness, “looking at the whole person to understand what they have been through. In addition to evaluations to determine diagnosis and treatment recommendations, I help the patient develop positive coping skills, emphasizing self-reliance and focusing on inner strengths.”
Dr. Fadness has been living in Vermont since 2003 and is married with two grown children. In her spare time, she enjoys travel and gardening.
The Family Psychiatry practice is located at 82 East View Lane, Suite 3, in Berlin. Please call 802-225-1266 for an appointment.
