MIDDLEBURY— Dr. Elizabeth Coogan has joined the staff of Porter Pediatric Primary Care and is now accepting patients in their new office on the campus of Porter Medical Center.
Prior to coming to Addison County, Dr. Coogan served as a pediatrician with the Colorado Permanente Medical Group. She is a native of Concord, Massachusetts, and attended Colby College in Waterville, Maine.
“I have always wanted to be a doctor because the practice of medicine allows me to combine science and understanding the human body with caring for individuals and families. After finishing medical school at the University of Massachusetts in 2013, I moved to Colorado to complete my residency in pediatrics at the University of Colorado. I have been a proud member of the Pediatrics department at Kaiser Permanente since 2016 and am a Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics” she said.
“I chose a career in pediatrics because I love seeing children grow and develop. I enjoy helping families through every stage of childhood and adolescence and the myriad challenges and opportunities each stage presents. I love meeting and getting to know kids of all ages and their families and working together to promote their health and well-being. I speak Spanish and English and am happy to conduct visits in both languages. In addition to my clinical practice, I am the medical technology lead for my colleagues in primary care, the champion for transgender care in our department, and sit on our medical office’s patient service committee.”
