Dr. Keating is a true son of Maine, having grown up in South Portland and graduating from South Portland High School and Bowdoin College. He received his Medical Degree from Tufts University School of Medicine in Boston. He has a special interest in treating patients with incurable cancers. He is board certified in Medical Oncology as well as Hospice and Palliative Medicine. His interests include Health Policy and Bioethics, with Masters Degrees in Health Policy and Management from the Muskie School at USM and in Bioethics from the Medical College of Wisconsin.

He enjoys his volunteer work with the American Cancer Society and is a member of the board of directors for the society’s New England division. In 2013 he received the St. George National Award from the ACS for Outstanding Service to the Community. He has been an ACS volunteer since he was in college. He helped to launch the first Living with Cancer Conference in Augusta in 1979 – now the longest running survivor conference of its type in the United States.

Dr. Keating first joined New England Cancer Specialists in 1988 and stayed for 18 years. He slipped away to Augusta for a few years, but rejoined New England Cancer Specialists in 2012.

He is admittedly unathletic for the most part, but gets pleasure from running, having run nine marathons – including the 100th Boston Marathon in 1996. He is a long-time member of the Maine Track Club. In his spare time he enjoys making, and eating, bread. He lives in Portland and has a grown daughter and son.
