After moving to Alexandria to be near his wife’s family in 2011, Dr. Noel Anupol has made the decision to return to Milford, DE. Dr. Anupol will open the Delaware Center of Excellence in Obstetrics and Gynecology on September 1, 2015 at 305 Jefferson Avenue in Milford.
“When I was in Milford previously, I was employed with someone else,” Dr. Anupol said. “When I made the decision to move into private practice, we discussed whether it would be better to remain in Virginia or to return to Milford and open the practice there. After being there from 2002 through 2011, I knew it was a great town and decided that opening a practice there would be the best option.”
Dr. Anupol said that having a hospital of the caliber of Bayhealth was another deciding factor for him. Because emergencies can occur frequently in obstetrics and gynecology, he wanted to be sure his patients would be able to receive quality, 24 hour per day, seven day per week care even when he was unable to provide them with that care.
“The hospital is critical in my practice as the difference between the time a patient gets help and when I can arrive could mean the difference between the life of a mother or the life of a child,” Dr. Anupol said. “It is very important that there be somewhere my patients can go, no matter what time of day or night it is, and get the assistance they need. Bayhealth’s Milford campus provides that service.” Dr. Anupol said that Bayhealth’s decision to build a new health campus in Milford also had some bearing on his decision.
After earning his medical degree at the University of Santo Tomas, Dr. Anupol completed his residency in obstetrics and gynecology at the University of Buffalo and then spent a year in Gynecologic Oncology fellowship at Roswell Park Cancer Institute in Buffalo, New York. He has been recognized with many awards and has been designated as a Center of Excellence in Minimally Invasive Gynecology surgeon. He also served as Chair and Vice-Chair of Obstetrics and Gynecology while functioning as a member of several hospital committees while working at Bayhealth Medical Center and Spotsylvania Regional Medical Center in Virginia. He has also been recognized with the Patient’s Choice Award in 2008, 2011, 2013 and 2014, as well as the Compassionate Doctor Award in 2010 and 2011. He was named as one of the Top 10 Doctors of Obstetrics and Oncology in 2014 in Fredericksburg, VA.
It is Dr. Anupol’s desire to build a vibrant social media community for his new office and he intends to use social media outlets to increase patient engagement, provide health education to women and to ultimately offer women the best possible care.
“I think Milford is a wonderful town,” Dr. Anupol said. “It has small town charm and a great community feeling. I really don’t like the big city. I hate sitting in traffic where I feel as if I am wasting time I could be spending with my patients. I spent nine years here and I found it to be a wonderful place to live.”
