ROCKPORT — Kerry Lavigne, M.D. F.A.A.D has announced the addition of Dr. Morris Minton to the team at Camden Dermatology and Mohs Surgery, which provides dermatological care for all age groups, from infants to geriatric patients.

“I’m extremely pleased to welcome Dr. Minton to our practice,” said Dr. Lavigne, in a news release. “It has been the goal of Camden Dermatology and Mohs Surgery to be able to expand our capacity for taking care of our Midcoast patients and we’re now one step closer with the capable skills of Dr. Minton.”

Minton attended Baylor University and the University of Texas Medical Branch. During his time in medical school, he received a cardiology fellowship at Cambridge University, Cambridge, England.

A captain in the U.S. Army Medical Corps, Minton completed his dermatology residency at Duke University Medical Center with additional training at the University of California San Diego, and became board certified in dermatology in 1976. 

In private practice for more than 40 years, Dr. Minton concentrated on general and surgical dermatology with an emphasis on skin cancer surgery and aesthetic/cosmetic procedures. He recently left a long-standing practice in North Carolina to come to Maine.  

“My wife and I spent many summers in Maine and were looking for a place to semi-retire,” said Minton. “We were so pleased to find the perfect opportunity to join a thriving practice with Dr. Lavigne, and a permanent home in this wonderful Maine community.”

Lavigne is a board-certified dermatologist with advanced fellowship training specializing in skin cancer, Mohs micrographic surgery, and reconstructive surgery.

As a board-certified dermatologist, she attends to the full spectrum of skin, hair and nail concerns, including acne, eczema, and psoriasis, as well as a tailored selection of cosmetic services. Lavigne is the only Mohs surgeon in the region outside Portland and Bangor.

“We’re thrilled to have Dr. Minton with us on Tuesdays through Thursdays,” said Lavigne. “His expertise and years of experience are a perfect fit for us and after spending more than 30 years in the area, he seems to know more folks than I do!”
