Weeks Medical Center Welcomes New Staff Podiatrist
New Hampshire Native Comes Home to Practice
Weeks Medical Center announced that Tara Soraghan, DPM, has joined the hospital as a new staff podiatrist.
Dr. Soraghan, who grew up in Conway, received her medical training at Temple University College of Podiatric Medicine and was named to the Phi Beta Kappa honor society. Dr. Soraghan will specialize in non-surgical and surgical care of the foot and ankle and will help expand podiatry care throughout the North Country.
“We are fortunate to have the Dr. Soraghan join the Weeks community,” says Scott Howe, CEO of Weeks Medical Center. “She will allow us to better serve the growing podiatry needs of our communities and help us do more outreach to underserved areas. She is a welcome addition to our medical staff.”
Dr. Soraghan recently completed her clinical and surgical residency program at Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital in Binghamton, NY. She joins the practice of Drs. Hal Goolman and W. Kemp Schanlaber at the Whitefield Physicians Office.
Dr. Soraghan’s appointment is in response to the growing demand for podiatry care in the North Country. Plans are underway to open a one-day-a-week podiatry office in Berlin and expand the amount of hours of the Colebrook office from one day to two. Dr. Soraghan will also be working closely with the Weeks Wound Care Center to provide a variety of care and treatment plans.
