MGH Virtual Visits: Connecting Patients with Physicians  MGH Beacon Hill Primary Care recently developed and launched MGH Virtual Visits. A virtual visit is a follow-up appointment with your doctor conducted through a secure online portal. These virtual follow-ups allow your doctor to evaluate and manage your care.

MGH Virtual Visits is not a substitute for all office visits, which should be carried out as your doctor advises.

Please speak to your MGH Beacon Hill Primary Care provider about participating in this program. Current participants can log on to the program at MGH Virtual Visits.
