APD is pleased to announce the addition of sports medicine physician Peter Loescher, MD. Dr. Loescher will start welcoming patients in the Multi-Specialty Clinic on January 13, 2020.
“I’m excited to call APD the new home of my medical practice,” Dr. Loescher said. “Serving the region is important to me, and I’m grateful to continue doing so close to home at a community hospital that is part of the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Health system,” he added.
“Dr. Loescher complements our orthopaedic sports medicine services well,” said Dale Collins Vidal, MD, MS, Executive Director of the APD Multi-Specialty Clinic. “His focus on non-surgical therapies to recover from injury and to prolong joint health and mobility, as well as his strong and loyal following of local athletes, will be welcome additions to APD,” she added.
