Our office has moved to the 5th 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.

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.

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.
