Dr. Caron's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Caron "I'm from a rural town in southern Minnesota moved to Maine for residency in Augusta at the Maine Dartmouth program. I've practicing a full range of family medicine in the area since 2004. I truly believe in the full spectrum of family medicine and appreciate being able to care for families from the Labor and Delivery floor all the way through to Nursing Home and Hospice care. I love Maine's no nonsense approach to life and though I can technically never become a true "Mainer" this is where my heart finds home."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Caron "I believe primary care is built upon relationships.  My job is to help teach people about their body and then together we make a plan to reach their personal goals.  Sometimes this is losing 20 pounds so they can plan a healthier pregnancy.  Sometimes it's getting prepared for and recovered from knee replacement so they can play with their grandchildren.  Sometimes it is about being comfortable and holding hands with your children as you pass. "

I chose to remove myself from a health care information sharing program for personal and privacy reasons. Dr. Caron was sitting nearby and heard me asking the office staff to assist me with this.

Dr. Caron usually has one foot out the door. Always in a rush and does not take patients' concerns seriously. She refuses to perform simple tests to confirm diagnoses and is very reluctant to make referrals to specialists when necessary.
