UROLOGY PRACTICE PARTNERSHIP TO BRING STATE-OF-THE-ART PROGRAM TO THE BERKSHIRES
PITTSFIELD, MA – With a shared commitment to bring the best clinical care possible to the communities they serve, Berkshire Health Systems and Northern Berkshire Healthcare, in collaboration with the four Urologists practicing in the Berkshires, have embarked upon a plan to redesign the manner in which urological services are provided locally.
Beginning March 1, 2008, the two long-standing urology practices in Berkshire County will become a single physician practice under Berkshire Health Systems, providing urological services to patients throughout Berkshire County and establishing the foundation for a comprehensive, state-of-the-art urology program. Under this plan, David T. Noyes, MD and Paul R. Silverstein, MD will join Stephen R. St. Clair, MD and Arthur F. Turton, MD to form Urology Services of the Berkshires, under the leadership of Dr. St. Clair.
“We are excited about the opportunity our new group will provide to enhance and coordinate urologic services in Berkshire County,” said Dr. St. Clair. “We anticipate this will also assist in drawing new urologists to the area, bringing additional urologic skills to our community.”
Urology Services of the Berkshires will continue to provide care through the existing physician offices in Pittsfield and North Adams, as well as at Berkshire Medical Center and North Adams Regional Hospital. This new physician practice has plans to improve access to urological services for residents of the Berkshires through the recruitment of additional urology specialists and to expand services to meet community needs.
Dr. Stephen St. Clair received his medical degree from George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Science and completed his residency training at Wilford Hall U.S. Air Force Medical Center in Texas. He has served in the Berkshires since 1993.
Dr. Arthur Turton received his medical degree from the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine and completed residency training at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center. He began practicing in the Berkshires in 1979.
Dr. David Noyes received his medical degree from the University of Vermont College of Medicine and completed residency training at the Medical Center Hospital of Vermont. Dr. Noyes has been practicing in Berkshire County since 1981.
Dr. Paul Silverstein received his medical degree from New York Medical College, where he also completed his residency training. He has worked in the Berkshires since 1980.
All of the physicians with Urology Services of the Berkshires are board certified in Urology.
To make an appointment with Urology Services of the Berkshires, patients can ask their primary care physician for a referral or call 413-499-8575 in Pittsfield or 413-662-2486 in North Adams.
