"To this day, I fully enjoy the patient care part of my profession."
Born in Pittsfield, Massachusetts to Italian immigrants, Dr. Eugene Curletti was the first in his family to go to college. And he certainly made the most of it.
A star first baseman at Pittsfield High School, Dr. Curletti was drafted by the Baltimore Orioles. However, his love for the Sciences eclipsed that of baseball, and after receiving encouragement to pursue Medicine from the late Dr. Modestino Criscitiello, Eugene entered Tufts University.
But even at Tufts, Dr. Curletti played ball and was continually followed by the Orioles organization. Yet, he persevered and received both his Bachelor's and Master's Degrees there, and earned his Medical Degree at the University of Vermont Medical School in Burlington. From there, Dr. Curletti did his Internship and Residency in General Surgery at George Washington University Medical Center in Washington, D.C.
Today, Dr. Curletti specializes in General, Vascular and Endocrine Surgery and has been active on BMC's surgical staff since 1980. "We owe it to our patients to be as professional and prepared as we can, as they are entrusting their lives to us," shares Dr. Curletti. "To this day, I fully enjoy the patient care part of my profession."
Enjoying his boyhood days in Pittsfield, Dr. Curletti was always appreciative of the Berkshires and its beauty, and never harbored a desire to move away. Today, he enjoys golfing, hunting and fishing. He lives in Pittsfield with his wife, Dolly, and their five grown sons.
