ENT Service Begins at SMMC

CAYHILL – St. Maarten Medical Center (SMMC) is proud to introduce its newest medical specialist Dr. Anouk Van Peteghem, Otolaryngologist, who has brought her Ear Nose and Throat (ENT) medical services to the hospital as of January 4th, 2016.

Dr. Van Peteghem earned her medical background in France, Belgium and the Netherlands. As an ENT surgeon, she received her training in Brussels, Belgium, several hospitals in the Netherlands and in Mexico where she deepened her knowledge in rhinology (study of the nose and its diseases).

Born in Belgium, Dutch is her native language, and given her experience in different countries, she is also fluent in English, French and Spanish.

Dr. Van Peteghem chose to move with her husband and two children to St. Maarten because, in her own words, “I would like to work in an environment where I can pay attention to each patient in the way he or she deserves. I can perform as an all-round ENT specialist with emphasis on pediatric ENT and general ENT including hearing improvement, nose and sinus problems and snoring as a problem. Furthermore, I can provide care for head and neck ailments such as diminished quality of voice, oncology and balance disorders caused by the inner ear.”

She continues, “I would also like to pay attention to prevention of hearing related illnesses; for example, professional (work related) hearing protection, hearing protection for youngsters and neonatal hearing screening.”

Dr. Van Peteghem describes exceptional patient care as with empathy and compassion: identifying the problem and the patient’s expectation then explaining and treating according to the best medical practice with shared decision making between doctor and patient.

Together with Dr. Van Peteghem, the SMMC looks forward to bringing exceptional care to its patients. You can learn more about Dr. Anouk Van Peteghem on her LinkedIn profile.

Dr. Van Peteghem office is located in the newly opened Care Complex. For ENT appointments with Dr. Van Peteghem, persons can call 543-1111 extension 1345. A referral letter is needed for SZV insured clients.
