Bethany Hays, MD

BETHANY HAYS, MD, FACOG is a practicing obstetrician-gynecologist with a career-long passion to find the best possible forms of healing and to incorporate them into her practice. Ten years ago that dream came to a new level of realization in the opening of True North, a center for health and healing in Falmouth, Maine. This unique integrative practice has been created by a group of practitioners of conventional and complementary modalities after nearly four years of dreaming and planning. Using circle process, a non-hierarchical business and collaboration model, and the belief in the importance of reverent participatory relationships, True North is a model for health care in a changing environment. The addition of functional medicine to her practice added a new dimension and new excitement for Dr. Hays, as well as a passion for the biochemistry she tried so hard to forget after the first year of medical school. She now claims to actually know the steroid pathway! There are currently seven AFMCP graduates practicing at True North making it Maine’s center for functional medicine!
