Douglas Aiken, MD

Family Physician

I am passionate about primary care and feel it is the answer to many of the healthcare issues this country struggles with. I do some occupational medicine and have been running an onsite employee health clinic at L.L.Bean for the past 25 years. I enjoy musculoskeletal medicine in the occupational medicine I do and in my practice. I was going to be a veterinarian, but a vet I worked for in high school talked me into the M.D. route.

I studied at Davidson College with a B.S. in Premed and Wake Forest School of Medicine, and had my internship and residency at Maine Medical Center and Mercy Hospital. I really enjoy getting to know my patients on a personal level. The long-term relationships one develops as a family practitioner are special to me. If I am able to positively influence someone’s life it is a good day.

Most of my patients know me pretty well. I share my life with them as much as they share their lives with me. I have no hidden talents. I do enjoy rock and roll music and play a pretty mean air guitar. I still go to rock shows, mostly with my son. That might surprise some of my patients.
