Family Medicine

A team model of care with a focus on wellness and prevention for all ages.

Unlike traditional adult and pediatric practices, the Family Medicine department provides care for patients of all ages. This includes routine physical exams, preventive care, cancer & cholesterol screening, immunizations, chronic disease care, walk-in care for urgent problems, pregnancy & newborn care, family planning and gynecological services. We have Women’s Health specialists on our staff as well as OB/GYN physicians and nurse practioners.

The Family Medicine Department is staffed with both attending providers and residents from Boston Medical Center (BMC). The Medical Residents are all licensed physicians who are pursuing advanced training to become Family Medicine specialists. Residents spend 3 years seeing patients at the South Boston Community Health Center under the direction of the Family Medicine attending providers.
