Dr. Zach Mazone, D.O.
Dr. Zach Mazone, D.O., is an Osteopathic Family Medicine Physician that specializes in integrative, life-style medicine. A graduate of the University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine, he has trained with some of the most successful life-style doctors around the country at centers specializing in health restoration and disease prevention. Dr. Zach, is dually board certified in Family Medicine (both Allopathic & Osteopathic). In addition, he is also certified by the University of Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine.
Dr. Zach enjoyed using natural remedies and lifestyle strategies with patients of all ages at Central Maine Medical Center, but found it extremely challenging to provide the time, or level of care necessary, to enable true patient health. Additionally, with the ever increasing constraints of governmental regulations and insurance company requirements, he realized that he must find another way to balance his desire to create a better and more intentional way of providing healthcare. This goal of finding “something better,” was the key driving force for choosing to join a grass-roots movement which creates a direct relationship between doctors and their patients without the unnecessary, and often unhealthy restraints, of the current primary care model.
Providing individualized support through the life-cycle, having time to build close patient relationships, and seeking positive life balance inspired Dr. Zach to start his own direct primary care integrative wellness center.
“DaySpring Integrative Wellness” was the result, and is based on a community-supported wellness model allowing him to work directly for his patients, and to provide them with the essentials, (Integrative, Osteopathic, and whole family comprehensive primary care), necessary for his patients to experience great value and vibrant health.
When not working with patients, Dr. Zach treasures time with his family, is active in his church, volunteers with community health projects, plays an active role in homeschooling his son, and enjoys time in nature.
