Alexandra Barr, DO
Dr. Alexandra Barr is a board certified Geriatrician and Family Medicine physician practicing in Southern Maine. She received her B.A. in Anthropology at Mount Holyoke College in South Hadley, Massachusetts. She attended West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine where she earned her Doctor of Osteopathy in 2011. She completed her Family Medicine Residency at Peconic Bay Medical Center in Riverhead, NY and her Geriatric Fellowship at Carilion Clinic in Roanoke, Virginia. At the end of her fellowship, a recruiter asked if she had ever considered living in Portland, Maine. With a resounding “YES!” she moved to Maine and has never looked back. In October 2019, she co-founded Coastal Maine Direct Care, a Direct Primary Care practice in Falmouth and enjoys her work as a Geriatrician, making house calls to her homebound patients as well as seeing her more ambulatory patients in the office. She is also the Medical Director for two long term care facilities, Ledgewood Manor in Windham and Coastal Manor in Yarmouth. In February 2020, she began working as a Hospice Physician at Northern Light Home Care and Hospice in South Portland which she also finds very rewarding.
Bringing her passion and caring to older adults, her special interests include geriatric health and wellness, dementia care, geriatric psychiatry, chronic disease management, palliative care and end of life care. When she isn't working, Dr. Barr enjoys singing, playing tennis, and traveling. She and her partner and two stepsons enjoy discovering new trails to hike, going to the beach, and lots of pillow fights.
