Dr. Anna Royer joins Northwestern Associates in Surgery as a board-certified general surgeon who trained in Tennessee but returns to her roots in New England, having grown up in western Maine.
Dr. Royer earned her MD at the Boston University School of Medicine and most recently worked at Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston and is excited to be at NMC in part because of its similarities to the region where she grew up.
“I think working at NMC and in Franklin County will give me an opportunity to develop a strong sense of community which is really important to me,” said Dr. Royer. She became interested in medicine from an early age, working with her father, a family practice physician, as his nurse’s aide while in college. She is passionate about providing care in under-served areas and spent time caring for patients in both Lesotho in southern Africa and in the Central American country of Guatemala.
She and her husband are looking forward to life in Vermont, and plan to raise sheep. The two met while on a marathon team, raising funds for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. They continue to train together and enjoy running.
Dr. Royer will see patients for a wide range of surgical needs including abdominal surgery, hernia repair, colonoscopy, and many other services.
