Family 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 healthcare 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.
Other services offered in family medicine include:
- Pediatric care
- Adult physical exams
- Mental health counseling and therapy
- Group support for chronic pain
- Consultations with our pharmacy team and certified diabetes educators
- Minor procedures (including but not limited to IUD and Nexplanon insertions, skin biopsies, skin tag and wart removals, joint injections)
- Treatment of hepatitis C
Appointments are readily available for new and established patients.
