Family Medicine / Primary Care

Comprehensive primary care for the individual and the entire familyFamily Medicine is primary care for individuals and families across all ages, genders, and diseases. Family Medicine providers care for all members of a family during all phases of life - infancy, adolescence, adulthood, and senior years.

Patients who receive care from Boston Medical Center’s Department of Family Medicine select a primary care provider from a group of physicians and nurse practitioners who are trained to meet their health care needs, whether in the office, hospital, at home, or in a nursing home.  This provider partners with a team dedicated to coordinating the patient’s care which includes staying healthy, arranging tests to manage chronic conditions, referrals to integrated behavioral health providers and medical specialists, streamlining hospital admissions, and more.

Some of Family Medicine’s most common services include:

  • Family-centered primary care
  • Well-baby and well-child checkups
  • Women's health care, including prenatal care and delivering babies
  • Immunizations
  • Adolescent medical exams and sports physicals
  • Adult physical exams
  • Cancer screening exams
  • Behavioral health services

Family Medicine also offers open access scheduling, which means patients can make appointments convenient to their schedules, including same day and same week appointments for routine and sick care services.

To make an appointment with a Family Medicine provider, call (617) 414-2080.
