Family Medicine | Female

Dr. Laura Caron, MD
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.

Dr. Caron's Care Philosophy

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.

Patient Comments (6)
Augusta, ME |
Very judgemental, does not listen to her patients & is not trust worthy.
South Paris, ME |
I would never, never, never recommend Dr. Caron!
Newton Center, MA |
I've been seeing Dr. Caron for years, she knows what she is talking about. She's very good at what she does. But she's also human, and sometimes humans are overwhelmed and misjudged some situations. That's why there is express care and the ER. I've never had a problem with her judgment over the years and I've had some hard to figure out problems. I recommend her to everyone looking for a new PCP.
in Washington,ME |
went to Dr.Caron on a Friday with severe throat pain & swelling. Her assistant swabbed throat for strep. she checked my swollen glands & sore ear which she said "was not infected & told me to call Monday for prescription if still in pain, it was just a virus" She NEVER actually looked in my mouth! I suffered until Sunday not being able to sleep,eat or drink. When I arrived at E.R. on Sunday they treated me for dehydration, strep throat & an absessed tonsil. I will not go back to her!
in Hallowell, ME |
Very considerate and thorough
in Augusta, ME |
Did not take my child's illness serious and put her in danger. Was upset that she couldn't wait for her appointment and went to the ER. We are inspecting her to be professional this is life or death not some kind of game.

Dr. Caron says...

I've been delivering babies at MGMC for over 10 years.  Caring for the children I've delivered as they grow and reach milestones is a miraculous gift.  Even more wondering is caring for their parents, grandparents and remembering when I cared for their great grandparents at Maine Vet's Home.  I believe the emotion behind these experiences is as important as technical skill.
