DownEast Magazine has recognized three University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine alumni as among Maine’s Best Doctors in its January 2014 issue.
Doctors Robert J. Fraser, DO ’04 (Internal Medicine), Kristy Pulsifer, DO, ’90 (Family Practice) and Kyla J. Scarponi, DO ’06 (Pediatrics) were noted for their outstanding work in their specialties.
DownEast surveyed 3,500 physicians in Maine and asked them this question: “If you or a family member had a problem in the following areas, who would you select as the best specialist in Maine?” The votes were tallied, and Downeast compiled and published the peer-selected list.
The UNE College of Osteopathic Medicine is the number-one provider of physicians for the state of Maine. It focuses on advancing primary care and community health, and more than 60 percent of its graduates practice in primary care disciplines, such as family medicine, general internal medicine and pediatrics; 25 percent of UNECOM doctors in Maine serve in rural areas.
The UNE College of Osteopathic Medicine has been consistently recognized by U.S. News & World Report for its national leadership in primary care training, geriatrics, rural medicine and family medicine.
