BMC’s Yawkey building doors are now closed as an entrance as part of our ongoing efforts to enhance our campus and provide you with the best clinical care.

All patients and visitors on our main campus must enter our hospital via Shapiro, Menino, or Moakley buildings, where they will be greeted by team members at a new centralized check-in desk before continuing to the hospital. We are excited to welcome you and appreciate your patience as we improve our facilities.

Our office has moved to the 5th & 6th floor of the Crosstown Building located at 801 Massachusetts Avenue. We are no longer located in the Shapiro Building.

Adult patients in BMC's General Adult Primary Care department have a medical home where they become part of a primary care team which provides a new, expanded type of care. In a medical home environment, BMC coordinates all of a patient’s healthcare needs, from helping them stay healthy by reminding patients of preventive checkups and tests, to working with individuals to manage chronic conditions, visits to specialists, hospital admissions, and more. Your primary care physician (PCP) is your partner for health and through the health care system. They will educate, advise, and guide you with all of your health care needs.

There are six adult primary care clinics at BMC with more than 50 providers, offering patients not only primary care they need, but also specialized clinics in women’s health and opioid addiction, and a clinic for those who speak only Spanish.

BMC’s diverse staff speak many languages and multilingual interpreter services are available to make your experience as easy and comfortable as possible.

If you need care when the office is closed, call 617.414.5951 and our answering service will page the on-call physician. 

New patient appointments are available. To make an appointment, call 617.414.5951.

Our Team

Primary Care

All of the physicians are board-certified in Internal Medicine. Several have additional certifications and expertise in sub-specialty areas, such as Public Health, Infectious Diseases and Substance Abuse.

In addition to physicians, a Clinical Pharmacist is on site full time. The pharmacist assists physicians to provide excellent care and is involved extensively in helping patients understand their medical conditions and medications. The practice also includes behavioral health professionals, social workers and registered nurses.

Multilingual Doctors
In addition to English, staff members speak Arabic, Spanish, French, Haitian Creole, Portuguese Creole and Amharic. Interpreters for many other languages are available either on site or on call to assist patients who do not speak English.
