Beginning March 1, Neurologist, Jeanmarie Prunty, MD will be offering clinics at Copley Hospital. Dr. Prunty is a Board Certified Neurologist who has been offering neurology care in our community for 30 years. “We are happy that Dr. Prunty has made the decision to remain in our community and continue to serve her patients close to home,” states Stephanie LaBarron, VP of Ambulatory & Provider Services. Dr. Prunty joins General Surgeons Donald Dupuis, MD and Courtney Olmsted, MD and Cardiologist Adam Kunin, MD in offering care through the hospital’s Multi-Specialty Clinic.
Dr. Prunty has been an active member of Copley’s Medical Staff since 1991, serving as Chief of Neurologic Services. She is Board Certified through the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. From 1991, until joining Community Health Services of Lamoille Valley (CHSLV) in 2005, her neurology practice was under Copley Hospital. “Dr. Prunty’s decision to continue her practice in Morrisville is a win-win for our community. Neurology is a specialized care with a growing demand. Our community is fortunate to have a physician who offers years of experience and lives in our community,” continued LaBarron.
Dr. Prunty offers comprehensive, compassionate care for patients with neurological disorders and diseases in the areas of: Alzheimer’s, dementia, epilepsy, headache/migraines, movement disorders, Parkinson’s disease, stroke and more. She provides care for children (12 years and older) and adults. Some of the more common reasons younger patients seek her care are for sports concussions, migraines and seizures. Disorders and diseases that bring older patients under her care include gait disorders, memory problems, tremor, stroke and Parkinson’s disease.
Dr. Prunty believes that when patients know more about their condition or disease, they have more control and can live a more satisfied life. When seeing patients she strongly promotes the empowerment through education. “Knowledge allows patients to feel more in control of their health,” says Dr. Prunty.
