Richard Hines, MD

Richard Hines

Specialty: Family Medicine

Dr. Richard Hines became a family physician because there was really no area of medicine that he disliked.  At this time, he enjoys providing care to growing families, which includes both pediatric and adolescent medicine, as well as routine adult care, and minor surgery in the office (skin problems, joint and soft tissue injections).  He has a sizable geriatric practice, and continues to follow patients in three area nursing homes.  He has always been a proponent of preventive care as a way to improve the health of our communities, and is happy to see that preventive services are (finally) covered by most or all insurance companies.

Dr. Hines and his wife moved to Blue Hill 28 years ago after completing a two year commitment with the Indian Health Service in Zuni New Mexico.  They have three grown children, and enjoy gardening, home improvement, and raising their new puppy of unknown lineage.  He exercises regularly, and has ridden his road bike in the annual American Lung Association Trek Across Maine for the last six years.  He will soon retire from the Maine Army National Guard after 30 years of service, including three combat deployments.
