Jan 21, 2022 | Health Highlights, News, Uncategorized

Mid-State’s Visiting Specialist Program is expanding to increase access to specialty services in the region. Mid-State is pleased to partner with Littleton Regional Healthcare to provide access to General Surgery by welcoming Dr. Underbakke from LRH Surgical Associates.

In addition to his office in Littleton, Daniel Underbakke, MD will begin seeing patients in early February at Mid-State Health Center’s Plymouth location and will offer minor surgical procedures, surgical consults, endoscopies, and colonoscopies. Dr. Underbakke is a board certified general surgeon who earned his Doctor of Medicine from the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health. He completed both his residency and fellowship at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center.

The Visiting Specialist Program allows board-certified specialists and other health care professionals to provide services at a Mid-State location. These providers are partners from local health care facilities which help increase access to services that residents may otherwise have difficulty obtaining or may have to travel a great distance to receive.

Other specialty services currently offered at Mid-State under the Visiting Specialist Program include:

Mid-State looks forward to continuing to expand the Visiting Specialist Program by exploring a variety of specialties to bring specialized care to you.

Visiting Specialists appointments are scheduled directly with the specialist’s office. To schedule with Dr. Underbakke, please call LRH at 603-444-0997.
