RANDOLPH, Vt., August 16, 2022— Gifford is pleased to welcome Dr. Steven Andreasen to its podiatry team. Currently, Dr. Andreasen is seeing patients at Gifford in Randolph and the Sharon Health Center. He comes to Gifford after spending the last few years practicing in Binghamton, NY.

Dr. Andreasen received his Doctorate in Podiatric Medicine from Kent State University in Ohio and attended the same residency program as another one of Gifford’s Podiatrists, Dr. Nick Benoit. After some good conversations with Dr. Benoit, Dr. Andresen decided to come to Gifford because of its rural community setting. He has an interest in sports medicine and has extensive experience in diabetic care.

“I am a team player who will work with my patients and help them as much as I can,” Dr. Andreasen said. “I am continually reading and studying different treatments because every patient is different and I want to do right by them.”

Dr. Andreasen likes the snow and is looking forward to all of the outdoor activities that come with a Vermont winter. He is currently seeing new patients and can be contacted by calling Gifford at (802) 728-2430 or the Sharon Health Center at (802) 763-8000.
