The practice, comprised of Lauren McClure, M.D., Janine Foote, D.O. and Peter Foote, D.O., will offer personal care for whole families under the umbrella of BMH Physician Group, the hospitals newly formed network of medical providers serving the greater Brattleboro area. New and existing patients can call 802-251-8455 to schedule appointments.
