MGH Beacon Hill Primary Care offers comprehensive adult primary care services in one convenient location in downtown Boston.
Adult Primary Care/Internal Medicine
The adult primary care and internal medicine physicians at MGH Beacon Hill Primary Care work with patients to coordinate all their health care needs, from routine physical exams to the diagnosis and treatment of complex medical problems and referrals to specialists. Our primary care physicians also provide information about preventive medicine and wellness programs available at MGH Beacon Hill Primary Care.
MGH Beacon Hill Primary Care clinicians are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to address our existing patients’ urgent care needs. After hours, call 617-726-4900 and ask to have the on-call physician paged. Patients with medical emergencies should call 911.
For urgent care issues during business hours, call 617-726-4900 and ask to speak to a nurse so we can direct your call appropriately.
MGH Virtual Visits: Connecting Patients with Physicians
Our patients have the option to participate in virtual visits. A virtual visit is a follow-up appointment with your primary care physician or practice designee conducted through our secure online portal to evaluate and manage care. This innovative technology fosters communication, builds relationships, improves access and convenience, and enhances patient care.
A virtual visit is not a substitute for all office visits, but can augment the traditional ways medical care is delivered, saving patients time and money.

At MGH Beacon Hill Primary Care, our on-site lab performs blood work and other routine tests Monday through Friday. If a primary care provider orders tests, patients can visit the lab during walk-in hours or by appointment during regular hours. Results are typically available through Partners Patient Gateway or by mail within two weeks. If test results show an abnormality, the patient’s primary care provider will be notified immediately and will contact the patient by phone.
