Medical Providers at Winooski Family Health
Irene Koplinka-Loehr, MD was born and raised playing in the gorges of Ithaca, NY. She grew up with a well-cultivated love of a crisp fall day and the sound of leaves crunching underfoot. She pursued these sounds to Carleton College in Minnesota, where she explored ceramics and photography via a bachelors in Studio Art. She was drawn to pursue Global Health at Ben Gurion University’s Medical School for International Health based out of Beer Sheva, Israel. After four years in the desert she was excited to return to the Northeast to complete a family medicine residency at the University of Rochester. Her personal and professional interests aligned well to bring her to Burlington—she is excited to continue to deliver babies and take care of the full spectrum of patients from birth to end of life care.
