Health Services in Portland

Whether you are a recent immigrant or refugee, recently moved to Portland from another state, or another part of this state, the questions you may be asking now that you are here are probably the same:

  What health services are out there for me?
How do I find a new doctor here?
How do I find a doctor with a particular specialty?
How do I go about paying for the health services I need?

Below are some resources that we hope will help you find answers to those questions and many more.  If you don’t find the resources you are looking for, or you think we are missing some key resource, feel free to contact us at phweb@portlandmaine.gov.
