Patrick Benson, MD, FAAD


I grew up in Vermont and have spent most of my life in New England. I went to Colby-Sawyer College in New London, New Hampshire, for my undergraduate degrees in Biology and Exercise Science before attending medical school at the University of Vermont.

During my third year of medical school, I found my passion in Dermatology. I enjoy taking care of patients of all ages with a wide variety of conditions, being able to visually evaluate a concern with the patient, perform procedures when necessary and have the knowledge to interpret biopsies. I was fortunate to be able to stay at the University of Vermont for my internship and residency where I had wonderful mentors in general dermatology, along with fellowship-trained Mohs surgeons, dermatopathologists and a pediatric dermatologist.

My wife grew up on the coast of New Hampshire and my brother works in Portland with his wife. We are excited call Maine our new home!
