Karen Heard Cushing, MD


My name is Karen Heard.  I am an Internist, a specialist in Adult Medicine.

I grew up in Kentucky, went to school in Tennessee and did my Internal Medicine residency in Seattle.  I practiced medicine in Indiana for many years.  More recently, my husband’s job brought us to Philadelphia for a few years and now to Maine.

I enjoy getting to know my patients and their families.   I like working together to help patients be as healthy as possible.

When I am not working, I enjoy outdoor activities with my husband and my dog.
