The McCance Center operates two clinics, one for preventive brain care and one for COVID-19 survivors. You can request an appointment by calling us at 617-726-4881. At both clinics, we will conduct a phone consultation prior to a full appointment.

Brain Health Clinic Appointments

  • Consultation: Complete a brief phone consultation to review your goals and concerns.
  • Scheduling: After your initial assessment, you will be scheduled with a doctor matched to your specific goals and needs. Most patients will meet with a neurologist; our team also includes general internal medicine and psychiatry specialists. Appointments can be scheduled in-person or virtually using video.
  • Referrals: If a referral is needed, we will discuss that in the phone consultation.
  • Confirmation: Confirmation of your appointment, an overview of our Center and directions or virtual log-in information will be mailed to the address you provide.

COVID-19 Survivor’s Clinic Appointments

  • Consultation: Complete a brief phone consultation to review your goals and concerns. The clinic is staffed with interpreters to facilitate both the initial consultation and your visit. Please have your referring clinician indicate which language you are most comfortable using to discuss your health.
  • Scheduling: After your initial assessment, you will be scheduled with a doctor matched to your specific goals and needs. Most patients will meet with a neurologist; our team also includes general internal medicine and psychiatry specialists. In many cases, we are able to offer virtual visits via zoom or phone, as well as in-person visits at the Mass General main campus (Wang 8) and our Chelsea and Revere Community Centers, or Brigham and Women’s Hospital.
  • Referral: If a referral is needed, we will discuss that in the phone consultation. Note for clinicians: Referrals must be made via EPIC, under MGH Ambulatory (AMB) Neurology, with “COVID Brain Health” in the comments section, and a description of the patient’s chief complaint(s). Please note that we are not taking referrals for post-vaccine reactions, or any referral related to SARS-CoV 2 vaccinations. Please refer to your PCP for these issues.
    • COVID Test Records: Your doctor will need to confirm PCR or AB COVID test results prior to the appointment. If you are an MGH patient this will be in your “EPIC” record, but other patients need to have this result sent to the clinic in advance (fax: 617-724-7836 Attn: McCance Center, COVID Survivors Clinic).
  • Confirmation: Confirmation of your appointment, an overview of our Center and directions or virtual log-in information will be mailed to the address you provide.
