Special Announcement




Dr Jill Mahoney MD and Dr Jacob Aguiar ND
are pleased to announce
the opening of their new clinic:

Scarborough Integrative Health
Scarborough, Maine


Scarborough Integrative Health, a patient-centered, tick-borne disease clinic, will open their doors this November, seeing patients Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 8am to 4pm with hours expanding (with possibly one late night a week) as the clinic grows.   Patients will be provided with extensive lab work and testing, prescription (oral and IV) meds, as well as supplements and herbal therapies.  IV nutritional therapy and chelation therapy services will be offered, gradually expanding to offer acupuncture, body work, ozone therapy and injection therapy.  David Aronson, LCSW, will be joining the clinic and offering counseling services as a Lyme Literate social worker.  Dr Mahoney and Dr Aguiar welcome the addition of like-minded practitioners who want to help them offer the best possible services to their patients.  All services provided will be done on a self-pay basis with a coded superbill given at each visit for insurance purposes.  One day a month, the clinic will be offering a Free Care Program, offering free testing and treatments to patients who qualify through the application process and who are accepted into the program.


Dr. Jill Mahoney MD graduated from Tufts University School of Medicine in 2000, after which she completed internship at Naval Hospital Jacksonville, FL.  She then served as a General Medical Officer in the United States Navy, acting as Senior Medical Officer for Destroyer Squadron 14 during their Spring 2002 deployment. Dr. Mahoney subsequently received the Navy Achievement Medal for her military service.  After separating from the Navy, Dr. Mahoney completed Family Medicine residency training at the University of Massachusetts.  In 2006, she relocated to Maine where she has been caring for patients as a family physician for the past decade.  She has received several awards for patient care, among them the American Red Cross " Real Heroes" award for Medical Outreach in 2013.   Dr. Mahoney is grateful for the opportunity to have worked with providers outside of allopathic medicine who have offered their expertise regarding the care of patients with tick borne illness. 

As a naturopathic doctor, Dr Jacob Aguiar works with each patient to create personalized and effective treatment solutions.  Prior to receiving his Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine from Bastyr University in Seattle, he received his BA in anthropology from Dartmouth College, graduating Magna Cum Laude.  He discovered in a class titled “The Anthropology of Health and Illness” that rarely is any disease confined to the physical body or the psyche alone.  Rather, the experience of health and dis-ease is a complex interplay of social, economic, psychological, and physical factors.  This understanding is crucial in the context of Lyme and associated diseases, which often create stressors in each of these areas. he has studied with leading experts in Lyme diagnosis and treatment over the last 10 years, including Dr Klinghardt MD, Dr Horowitz MD, Dr Ross MD, and Dr Burrascano MD.   He spent the last several years treating over 1,000 patients with Lyme and tick-borne infections at North Coast Family Health in New Hampshire.   He continues to deepen my knowledge and stay up to date with current research by attending International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society (ILADS) conferences, other related conferences throughout the year, and reading the latest books published by leaders in integrative health care. 

Dr Jacob’s deep desire to bring this accumulated knowledge back to Maine to help the Lyme community has led to partnering with his colleague, Dr Jill Mahoney MD, who has been successfully treating Lyme disease in Maine for many years and their decision to open a patient-center tick-borne illness clinic.  They both understand that attaining health is a process and do their best to provide proven solutions while supporting and empowering their patients along the way. 

Dr Mahoney and Dr Aguiar look forward to working with each patient’s desires, beliefs, and values to develop a treatment and management approach that works to help their patients establish and reach personal health goals.
