Lincoln Medical Partners is pleased to welcome Melissa Keeport, MD to its Damariscotta practice. Dr. Keeport, a pediatrician, will provide care to children up to age 18.
Dr. Keeport earned a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science at the University of California-Berkeley and a Master in Middle Eastern History at Ben Gurion University of the Negev. She completed her pre-medical studies at Harvard University and earned her Medical Doctorate at the Tulane University School of Medicine. Prior to joining LincolnHealth, Dr. Keeport completed her residency at Maine Medical Center.
Dr. Keeport was born in Los Angeles and grew up on the island of Maui in Hawaii. She said she was attracted to pediatric care because of her ability to see positive results and the genuine nature of children.
“I love that kids mostly get better when they are sick,’’ she said. “Plus, I love their honesty.”
Dr. Keeport chose LincolnHealth because of the integrated approach to primary care and the beauty of coastal Maine. She enjoys spending time with her husband, Dan and their two young children. She is looking forward to exploring all the great things the area has to offer.
“I love anything outdoors – riding bikes, exploring, the water – especially if it’s warm - finding shells and other nature items with my kids,’’ she said. “If I have spare time, I enjoy reading novels as well.”
To make an appointment with Dr. Keeport, please call 207-563-4250.
