I chose to study medicine because I wanted to help people.
I knew that I could return home to small-town Maine to be a part of a team that could help improve patient’s quality of lives.
My mission is to treat people of all ages who have a variety of conditions.
My training and experience has prepared me to help people in a variety of ways including hands-on manipulation, injections (trigger points, bursa and joints), as well as acupuncture.
I am open-minded with my approach to patients.
I studied acupuncture (which includes aspects of complimentary & alternative medicine) prior to attending medical school, so that gives me a unique perspective.
My favorite class in college was biological psychology and I continue to have a love for learning about all related topics. Fitness, healthy behaviors and nutrition are also big interests.
With years of experience employed in outpatient clinics and hospitals (including caring for patients in the ER and hospital), I am eager now to open this small clinic to evaluate and treat patients in my new space.
I work in collaboration with primary care physicians and specialists with a goal of helping to improve quality of life.
When we meet, we discuss concerns and options for treatment, Osteopathy and acupuncture can be beneficial for a number of illnesses and injuries. It’s not just about pain.
I use hands-on techniques primarily, but also can make recommendations about diet, medications and other modalities, including coordinating care with other providers.
Ultimately, my mission is to help people in whatever way I can.
Education and Experience
Gail Lamb, D.O.
I was born and raised in Maine. I graduated from the University of Maine at Farmington with Bachelor of Arts degree, then New England School of Acupuncture (Massachusetts) with Master of Acupuncture Degree, and University of New England (Biddeford, Maine) with Doctor of Osteopathy degree.
My primary residency was at Maine-Dartmouth Family Medicine Residency and I completed an additional residency/fellowship in Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine/Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine (NMM/OMM) at Eastern Maine Medical Center.
I am Board Certified by the American Board of Family Medicine, the American Osteopathic Board of Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine & OMM (also known as osteopathic manipulative treatment “OMT”), as well as the American Board of Medical Acupuncture.
With limited staff (just me to start) and part time hours, I am utilizing modern technology (phone calls, emails and texts) to help with scheduling and to communicate with patients and colleagues. I’m accepting limited insurance at this time.
My goal is to “keep it simple” so that I can focus time on taking care of patients.
I’m not currently accepting primary care patients, but will work with your primary care provider/specialist team and other caregivers to help you.
