The Phyllis Jen Center for Primary Care

Our Practice

The Phyllis Jen Center for Primary Care is a group of Primary Care providers within Brigham and Women’s Hospital. All trained in the general medical care of adults, we care for patients with many short-term and long-term health problems. We also focus on preventing illness to keep you healthy. In addition to caring for medical problems, such as high blood pressure, asthma, and diabetes, practitioners in the Jen Center can help with routine gynecologic exams, dermatology, and even minor surgical procedures.

We are proud to be a teaching practice. This means that some of our physicians are resident physicians. They have completed four years of medical training and are continuing on with three more years of training in Internal Medicine. Every visit to a resident is supervised by a senior physician.

The Jen Center has many other professionals dedicated to helping you. These include a nurse educator, a pharmacist, and a social worker. These people can help you to stay healthy, learn more about illnesses such as asthma or diabetes, understand your medications, and assist with stressful life situations (such as housing, family problems, or personal crises). Our team also includes medical assistants and LPNs who help in many ways to make your visit as productive and smooth as possible.
