Brigham and Women’s Primary Care Associates of Brookline

Brigham and Women's Primary Care Associates of Brookline provides a full range of adult health services – from routine examinations and screenings to urgent care, complex diagnostic evaluation, treatment and referral. Located just outside Coolidge Corner, our office is accessible by the MBTA Green Line Cleveland Circle branch and there is on-street parking nearby. The office is wheelchair-accessible. Some of our physicians offer early morning appointments, and the practice provides 24-hour coverage seven-days-a-week.

Our healthcare team also includes a nurse care manager and a social worker, as well as a psychiatrist who joins us twice monthly. Your PCP will include any of these team members as they see appropriate. Access to this multidisciplinary team ensures a holistic care approach, including addressing your behavioral health needs.

When inpatient care is required, patients may be admitted to Brigham and Women’s Hospital or Brigham and Women's Faulkner Hospital. All of our physicians are board-certified in Internal Medicine and are on the faculty of Harvard Medical School.

Requesting Appointments for Existing Patients

Please call us or use Patient Gateway to schedule an appointment. We request that you call as early in the day as possible in order for us to do our best to offer a same-day appointment. We will try to schedule you with your primary care provider or another member of the team. Please provide as much notice as possible when cancelling or rescheduling an appointment.

Urgent Care/Off Hours Information and Instructions

Emergencies: If you are having a life threatening emergency, call 911 or go to the nearest emergency department. If the emergency is not life threatening, please call us before going to the emergency room to see if we can help you with medical advice.

Responding to your phone messages: Urgent or sick calls are returned as soon as possible. Most phone calls are returned by the end of the day. Messages are frequently sent to the nurse on your team. In consultation with your provider, the nurse will call you back to answer your clinical questions and can help you decide if you need to come for a visit. Messages that are not urgent may be returned the next business day.

Between two and four same-day appointments per provider are reserved for same-day access.
