Speare Memorial Hospital & Mid-State Health Center are pleased to welcome Dr. Jennifer Bentwood to our community
Dr. Brittany Anibal is joining Plymouth Pediatric & Adolescent Medicine at Speare Memorial Hospital. A graduate of Souhegan High School in Amherst NH and the University of New Hampshire (UNH), Dr. Anibal is eager to return to New Hampshire.
Dr. Anibal earned her bachelor’s degree in medical laboratory sciences at UNH, graduating as a university scholar, magna cum laude. She went on to earn her medical degree at the University of Pikeville Kentucky College of Osteopathic Medicine and complete a pediatric residency at East Tennessee State University. Dr. Anibal has a particular interest in breastfeeding and the first year of life and plans to become a certified lactation consultant.
“Dr. Anibal has been trained in the most recent state-of-the-art pediatric care from her recent residency training and is also empathic to the emotional needs of others as evidenced by her years of volunteer work and mentoring,” says Dr. Oliver Salmon of Plymouth Pediatric & Adolescent Medicine.
Valuing the parent-child relationship, Dr. Anibal strives to provide individualized care for each child while also respecting the family’s opinions.
“I treat all my patients as if they are my own child. I went into pediatrics because I love working with children. They make my day so much brighter, and I love watching and helping them grow into amazing adults,” says Dr. Anibal.
In addition to her fondness for the care of infants and young children, Dr. Salmon notes that she is also skilled in the care of adolescent patients and their eventual transition into adulthood, in charge of their own medical care.
Dr. Anibal also has a fondness for the granite state. She and her husband went to high school and college together in New Hampshire and are happy to return to their family in the area with their three-year-old son, Brayden.
“We are very excited to move back,” says Dr. Anibal. “We look forward to spending time as a family kayaking, hiking, going out on the boat, and enjoying the coast.” Dr. Anibal is accepting new patients through virtual telemedicine or in-person visits with safety precautions in place. To make an appointment, call (603) 536-3700.
