We provide health care as a team, with a focus on the individual patient as a certified Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH Level 3 certification). This is the highest level approved by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA).
This means that our focus and care is on the person as a whole, allowing your physician to spend more time with you. As a patient of our practice, you will also have access to all of the world-class resources of Massachusetts General Hospital, including specialists in virtually every specialty and subspecialty, should you need it.
We look forward to focusing on our patients as a whole to improve access and quality of health care, while decreasing health care costs to both the patients and communities we serve.
Your team of health care providers will consist of your primary care provider, nurse practitioners, RN's, LPN's, flow manager, secretary, phlebotomist, managed care coordinator, physiatrist, social workers, nurse educator, residents and nutritionists.
All of our doctors are board-certified and are specially trained to care for patients of all ages, from newborns to seniors. This means your doctor can care for your entire family for life.
Our physicians work with you to coordinate all of your health care needs, from routine physical exams to diagnosis and treatment of complex medical conditions, to preventative medicine and wellness programs.

Seasonal allergies are very common. Some people suffer seasonally and others have symptoms throughout the year. One of the most important things you can do for your allergies is to avoid the things that make it worse. These are called "Allergens" or "Triggers". The most common "triggers" are pollen from trees, grass, weed, and ragweed. Many people are also allergic to mold. Below is a listing of the pollen seasons for the New England area:
Mold, on the other hand, is present throughout the year. Mold spore levels change due to weather conditions such as wind, rain or temperature.
Information on pollen and mold spore counts by area is available from the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology
Do not use antihistamines in children without talking to your doctor. Read all labels for proper dose and frequency. Do not mix oral medications. Reducing exposure to allergens and environmental triggers along with OTC medications can help reduce your symptoms during allergy season. If you feel you need additional measures, please make an appointment to see your primary care provider.
