Physician entrepreneur Dr. Kenton Allen, Co-founder of DOC2DOC Lending, was named a winner in the annual “10 to Watch” awards. The contest, presented by the Catapult Seacoast young professionals network and Seacoast Media Group, showcases the driving forces behind today’s new economy, innovation and community organizing, by spotlighting young people tangibly impacting the Seacoast region of New Hampshire.
Dr. Allen is Director of Anesthesia at Wentworth Surgery Center as well as the Vice President of the New Hampshire Medical Society. In the course of completing medical school at Dartmouth, finishing a residency at Harvard, beginning his career in New Hampshire and starting a family, Kenton found that the sources of capital available to doctors were too highly dependent on debt-to-income ratio and ignored the unique financial life cycle of the majority of early-career doctors. Credit card debt, relocation expenses and growing family expenses were as real for Dr. Allen then as they are for early career physicians today.
Now established in his career, Kenton has partnered with other physicians from diverse specialties and backgrounds to build the first doctor-led source of financing for other doctors. Kenton’s work building DOC2DOC Lending has shared a similar purpose with his work in the operating rooms: helping to smooth the path for people to lead the healthy, successful lives they envision.
