Vermont and the northern New York region. Located in Burlington, Fletcher Allen is a regional, academic healthcare center and teaching hospital in alliance with the University of Vermont.
Images are acquired by highly skilled sonographers and interpreted by cardiologists with specific subspecialty training in echocardiography. The transportability of echocardiography allows us to offer these services to patients at our outpatient facilities on Tilley Drive in South Burlington as well as at area hospitals.
The laboratory is directed by Dr. Marc Tischler, a national authority, and is staffed by residents, students, and at least two fellows in training. Dr. Tischler is a hands-on director who spends his days in the laboratory, interpreting studies as well as teaching and mentoring residents and fellows. Because the laboratory is focused on research, teaching, and direct patient care, the attending faculty bring a depth of insight to interpretation of results that directly translates into improved clinical diagnosis, patient care, and outcomes.
