Dr. Sabean is a warm and caring physician, who trained for many years to become a Board-Certified dermatologist, qualified to diagnose and treat the vast array of skin conditions and diseases - medically, surgically or with laser therapy and to do many cosmetic procedures to treat and rejuvenate aging skin and laser procedures for lesion removal and skin cancer treatment as alternatives to surgery. He has been in solo practice in the Portland area for more than twenty-five years and is affiliated with Maine Medical Center. He is also an Instructor of Clinical Medicine at the University of Vermont. Locally he has been featured in the media regularly regarding skin cancer, psoriasis, acne and other subjects. Nationally, he has been selected as a speaker and consultant for several pharmaceutical companies.

Growing up in New England, he thanks his parents, Irene and Don, for all their support and for instilling within him his desire to learn, his sense of humor, his moral values and his easy-going manner. At age sixteen he graduated from high school in Weston, Massachusetts and went through Grinnell College in Iowa in three years. At age nineteen, he commenced his medical training at the University of Vermont College of Medicine in Burlington, Vermont. After receiving his medical degree, he took his internship at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque, after which he served as a physician in the Air Force for two years. When Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center offered him a Dermatology residency, he was pleased to accept. He felt especially fortunate to train there. During these years in residency, he worked weekends running an emergency room at a near-by hospital in Vermont to help support his young family. After training, he relocated to a thriving private practice in South Portland, Maine.
