Weeks Medical Center is pleased to announce that John Ford, MD, and Marc Gautier, MD, have been named among top doctors in the state of New Hampshire. Dr. Ford was recognized as one of the best family medicine doctors. Dr. Gautier was recognized as one of the best hematologists. The annual survey of top doctors is published by New Hampshire magazine.

In its annual survey, New Hampshire magazine works with national medical research firm Castle Connolly Medical to determine the best doctors in the state. Castle Connolly surveys physicians, hospital staff, and healthcare executives to determine the doctors considered outstanding in their medical specialties. Doctors cannot nominate themselves for recognition. In 2018, the magazine recognized 307 doctors statewide. Dr. Ford was among 16 physicians recognized in the family medicine category. Dr. Gautier was among six physicians recognized in the hematologist category.

“The Weeks community is very fortunate to have quality physicians such as Dr. John Ford and Dr. Marc Gautier on our team,” says Mike Lee, president of Weeks Medical Center. “Both doctors are well respected by staff and patients alike. This recognition as New Hampshire top doctors is well deserved and shows their dedication to providing quality healthcare. On behalf of all the staff at Weeks, I congratulate Dr. Ford and Dr. Gautier on this honor, and thank them for the good work they provide for our patients.”

Dr. Ford received his medical degree from the University of Massachusetts Medical School and served his residency at Washington Hospital in Washington, PA. He joined Weeks Medical Center in 1999. In addition to his family medicine duties, Dr. Ford attends to his patients who have been admitted to the hospital, assists in the Weeks Emergency Department, and also provides prenatal care and baby delivery at Littleton Regional Healthcare.
