Primary care physician Dr. Lindsay Goffredo-Hughes considers herself a family practice physician and chose her specialty because of the importance she places on her own family.
“My family is the center of my life and the reason that I work so hard," she says. "I treat everyone who walks through my door like they are family. They are important; they are the center of someone’s life. I make every medical decision as though I was making it for my mother, husband or child. I care about my patients and their lives and love to welcome them to my ‘family’ practice."
“Because I grew up in the Slate Belt and because my family, the Goffredos, is well-known, I know everyone and treat them like family. Many times I’ve seen three generations of one family, the grandparents, parents and children. That provides unmatched insight in their family and medical history, while making it extremely personal.”
“With Coordinated Health behind me, I can really coordinate a patient’s care from pediatrics to GYN to family medicine. I provide the same kind of personal care that doctors used to provide me with when I was growing up. It's the kind of care that residents of the Slate Belt deserve. After all, this is my community and my home.”
Dr. Goffredo-Hughes grew up in Roseto, an enclave of Bangor, and is fluent in Spanish. The Goffredos are fourth generation Roseto and Slate Belt residents, born and bred. Her hometown is named for the village of Roseto Valfortore in Italy where her family hails from. Dr. Goffredo-Hughes is oldest of five siblings and married with three children. She has a very maternal and family-style approach to care.
Outside of practicing medicine, she enjoys spending time with her three children and husband.
