Ben Hagopian, MD, MPH
Family and Integrative Physician
Ben is a board-certified family doctor, specializing in integrative medicine. He earned his MD, MPH from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, OH and went on to train at Maine Medical Center where he was selected to remain on as chief resident.
Ben’s desire to focus on health promotion and disease prevention rather than simply treating symptoms of a disease led him to do a fellowship in integrative medicine at Maine Medical Center and the Andrew Weil Center for Integrative Medicine at the University of Arizona. He spent 3 grateful years in Oxford County, Maine caring for a rural community but felt the pull back to Portland.
After spending time learning about direct primary care and the value it brings to both patients and doctors, he feels as though a return to lifestyle medicine, high-quality, personalized care, and lower costs are the future of healthcare.
Outside of medical practice, Ben has a passion for healthcare system reform and serves on the Board of Directors for the Maine Academy of Family Physicians.
Ben’s good medicine includes spending time with his wife, son, and dog Ketchup as well as maintaining his own health through exercise, meditation, and being in nature.
