Central Maine Healthcare is pleased to welcome Manuel Sanchez, MD, to the River Valley Community.
Dr. Sanchez is an internal medicine provider who will be practicing at Swift River Family Medicine in Rumford.
Swift River Family Medicine, which is located on the Rumford Hospital campus, provides care to individuals of all ages in a family-oriented setting. The practice treats all types of chronic disease and acute health issues.
Dr. Sanchez is especially interested in the prevention of hypertension and diabetes and is looking forward to practicing rural medicine.
Dr. Sanchez grew up in the country of Peru and says having a grandfather who was also a physician played a key role in his deciding to go to medical school.
“Seeing that my grandfather could manage the whole spectrum of diseases, that’s what inspired me to go into internal medicine.”
Dr. Sanchez went to medical school at Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia and completed his internal medicine residency at St. Luke’s Hospital in Missouri.
Being fairly new to our climate, Dr. Sanchez is looking forward to learning how to ski and snowboard.
