Alta Tusini, MD

Alta Tusini is a Pediatrician who works in our Haverhill Office. She joined CHC in 2019.

Alta Tusini was born and raised in Allentown, PA (like the Billy Joel song!). She was active with soccer and skiing while growing up. She studied biomedical engineering at George Washington University, then spent the two years after college living in the DC area while working at the National Institute of Health. Following her time in DC, she moved to New York to attend Albert Einstein College of Medicine. After 4 years in New York, Alta moved to Salt Lake City for her pediatric residency. While she loved Utah, she was very happy to return back East to be closer to family.

Alta met her husband, Evan, on her first day of orientation at George Washington University. They married in 2015 and just welcomed a baby boy, Dominic, to the family.

Alta joined CHC in the summer of 2019.
