3. What if I have a problem after hours?

After hours, on weekends or on holidays, call 617.414.5946.  The doctor or nurse practitioner will call you back within 30 minutes. Stay by the phone. Keep your telephone line open. If you are ill, please take your temperature with a thermometer before you call, so you can tell the doctor or nurse practitioner whether you have a fever. The on-call doctor or nurse practitioner is not working in the hospital and does not have your records.

In a life threatening situation, call 911 or go to the Pediatric Emergency Department at Boston Medical Center.

4. What is your confidentiality policy?

To protect our patients’ health and to comply with Massachusetts state law, we provide adolescents with confidential care for problems related to sexually transmitted diseases and contraception. If you are a parent or a patient and you have a question about our confidentiality policy, please speak with your adolescent’s primary care clinician.
