In 1994, Dr. Benoit opened his own private practice in his hometown of Bangor, Maine, where he worked diligently to make sure women of all ages had access to quality obstetrical and gynecological care. Our practice grew steadily over the years, and we were later joined by Doctors Kimberly Kauffman and Christopher Rumsey. In 2019, Dr. Rumsey took over ownership of Downeast Ob/Gyn and today he proudly owns the only private practice in Bangor that offers full-panel obstetrical and gynecological care.
Our dedicated team of providers consists of three physicians who are board-certified with the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology, two certified family nurse practitioners, and one certified nurse midwife. Along with our competent and caring office staff, we pride ourselves on providing the highest level of professional and individualized care to our patients. Together, our providers deliver hundreds of babies each year and provide a full spectrum of gynecological care ranging from annual well-women exams to complex gynecological conditions in need of medical management or surgical intervention.
