Massachusetts General Hospital provides primary care services to more than 200,000 adults and children in 20 locations throughout Greater Boston.
Our primary care physicians (PCPs) are highly trained and board certified in family medicine, internal medicine, pediatric medicine and/or geriatrics, and serve on the faculty of the Harvard Medical School.
Your Mass General PCP is responsible for providing, directing and/or arranging for services to meet all of your health care needs. He or she is your resource for information and advice about staying healthy—and the first person to call if you have a health problem.
Nurses and others in the primary care practice where you receive care help your PCP to meet your needs. Your care team gets to know you well (and you, them) and welcomes your participation in decisions related to your care.
Mass General primary care practices are becoming certified Patient-Centered Medical Homes by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) which reflects our commitment to provide education, guidance and coordination of health care to all our patients. This means that our focus and care is on the person as a whole, allowing your physician to spend more time with you.

Patients will be encouraged to play an active part in their health care by asking questions, communicating with their health care team and collaborating to reach healthy goals.
