Patient Testimonials

"I have spent years seeking comprehensive, respectful, professional medical care for both my parents. This is the first time that I have believed we are finally in good hands. It is extremely difficult to find a competent, skilled physician who treats the needs of the whole individual- particularly one who is older You were not only very thorough but you took the time to understand all the issues and have the skill to be able to evaluate, diagnose and recommend solutions."

"I'm 74. My wife and I both started going to MGH Senior Health about 3 years ago. We're both very satisfied with the quality of care and the personal attention we receive. Our doctors are specialists and know which of our problems are related to aging and what we can do about them. My medical problems are multiple and I need an organized approach. The staff is never too busy to return a phone call. Their whole approach is like family...they follow up with me like a mother hen."

"It was wonderful talking to you Ginny and it was so good for Dr. Hamann to call- you all and Barbara were a great team. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all you did for Joe- making him safe and secure in your caring for him."
