Located in Waltham and offered in partnership with Newton-Wellesley Hospital, Primary Care Associates provides access to all of Massachusetts General Hospital's resources—from new technologies to new treatments—right in your community.
Comprehensive Primary Care
Primary Care Associates at Mass General Waltham consists of both physicians and nurse practitioners who work with you to provide care that is personalized, convenient and tailored to your health history and personal health goals. We strive to partner with our patients to optimize their health care. Primary Care Associates will help you access the outstanding resources available through Mass General and the Partners HealthCare System.
We connect with you using leading health care technology, like Partners Patient Gateway, our secure electronic link to our office that offers you a convenient way to request routine appointments, referrals and prescription refills.
A Team Approach to Care
We provide health care as a team, with a focus on the individual patient.
Each dedicated health care team includes:
- A physician
- A nurse practitioner
- Medical assistants
- Administrative staff
Together, patients and their health care team create a health care plan that is personalized and coordinated to help patients stay healthy and to provide care when they need it. The team can help patients better understand their health care needs, maintain an accurate medication list or connect them with specialists if necessary. 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.
Educating the Next Generation of Health Care Leaders
As part of Mass General, the largest teaching hospital of Harvard Medical School, we are proud to participate in educating the next generation of health care professionals and have several Mass General residents at our practice. These physicians have received their medical degrees from top-ranked medical schools and are specializing in internal medicine. They are supervised by our attending physicians. Patients who see a resident as their primary care provider will find the attending physician’s name on their insurance card.
