For Medical Professionals

Refer A Patient

We are committed to providing a high level of assistance to our physician colleagues within BMC and outside of the BMC system, as well. Whether for diagnosis, treatment, a single consultation, second opinion or ongoing follow up, our physicians will keep the consulting physician fully informed of the patient's treatment plan and coordinate long term management.

We accept referrals from patients and providers nationally and internationally.

Prior to your patient’s first visit we ask that their medical records be sent to us as well as the reason for their referral.

Please fax the consult with reasons for the evaluation to Toya Phillips or Marisol Garcia at 617.638.7454.

We request that the patient call us at 617.638.7460 to schedule their appointment.

Cost-Effective Care

Our staff is responsive to the challenges of health care today, which call for care to be delivered in an efficient, cost-effective manner.
