Radiologic Associates of Fredericksburg Hires Four New Physicians

FREDERICKSBURG, Va., Sept. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Radiologic Associates of Fredericksburg (RAF) has added four board-certified radiologists to its practice, which now totals 29 physicians with extensive training covering all medical imaging subspecialties.

Ed Swager, chief executive officer for RAF, attributes the practice's recent growth to a number of factors.

"We are expanding services to a growing population while, at the same time, compensating as senior partners have reduced their hours," he said. "RAF radiologists provide 24/7 coverage to Mary Washington Hospital and Stafford Hospital, as well as four medical imaging centers and our outpatient center for Virginia Interventional and Vascular Associates.

"Hiring top medical talent also allows RAF to continue our tradition as an early adopter of proven technologies," Swager added. "Our radiologists introduced virtual colonoscopies to the area more than two years ago, for example, and also were early adopters of digital mammography. Our interventional radiology and vascular specialists perform cutting-edge procedures ranging from uterine fibroid embolizations (UFEs) to aortic stent grafts."

RAF's four newest physicians are Drs. Joseph M. Bestic, Vishal Bindal, John D. Gleason, and Narinder Sethi.

Dr. Joseph M. Bestic earned his medical degree from The Ohio State University in 2003. He completed his residency training in diagnostic radiology at the Mayo School of Graduate Medical Education, in Jacksonville, where he also received fellowship training in musculoskeletal imaging. He received several awards including the Resident Award for Excellence in Medical School Training and The Baker Fund Resident Research Award.

Dr. Vishal Bindal earned his medical degree from Duke University School of Medicine in 2001. He completed his residency in diagnostic radiology at the University of Medicine & Dentistry of New Jersey, Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in Brunswick, then returned to Duke for fellowship training in neuroradiology in CT, MRI and interventional pain management procedures. Dr. Bindal has vast research experience and has written several articles in medical publications.

Dr. John D. Gleason earned his medical degree from Harvard Medical School in 2003. He finished his residency training in diagnostic radiology at the University of Michigan. He then completed his vascular and interventional radiology fellowship training at the Baptist Cardiac & Vascular Institute in Miami. Dr. Gleason has written several articles in medical publications and has presented information at numerous medical conferences.

Dr. Narinder Sethi earned his medical degree from Virginia Commonwealth University School of Medicine in 2003. He completed his residency training in diagnostic radiology at the Medical College of Virginia (MCV), where he was named the outstanding resident for class of 2008. He also received his fellowship training in MRI from MCV.
