Having joined our practice at SVHC in 2020, PA DeCristoforo notes, “I am happy and proud to be part of the caring team at SVHC. I honor and work hard to keep the trust patients extend to me as their medical provider, and know that this is a true privilege. My work is in the service of the individual, the patient’s best interests are at the core of how I practice medicine, and I enjoy partnering with patient’s to provide ‘patient–centered’ medical care”.
Barts hobbies include kayaking, mountain biking, cross country skiing, hiking, dancing, and meditation practice. He is excited to be entering a new chapter in his personal and professional life, as his daughter has recently left Maine and moved across the country to attend college, while he relocates back to the Sacopee Valley area, the place he first called home when moving to Maine in 1995.
