How do I make an appointment?

Our office hours are 8:30 am to 5:30 pm, Monday through Friday. We have the utmost respect for everyone's time, and we do everything we can to make the best use of both your time and our physicians' time.

If you ever feel that you are experiencing a medical emergency, do not hesitate to call our office, regardless of the day or hour. We have in place a system of physician coverage that ensures that urgent medical needs will be met.

Please call (617) 732-7240 to request an appointment. When you call, the scheduler will ask for the following information:

  • Your name
  • Your date of birth
  • Brief description of the reason for the appointment
  • Your address
  • Home and alternate (work) phone numbers
  • Your primary physician or health care provider, and whether or not you would like us to send a report of your visit to that provider
  • Your insurance or HMO information
How can I prepare for my appointment?

Please assist us by remembering to bring the following to your appointment:

  • Referral form (for HMO insurance, if required)
  • Insurance cards and a means of identification such as a driver's license or social security card
  • List of current medications you are taking including prescriptions, over the counter medications, and any herbs
  • Relevant information about your medical and surgical history, such as pertinent x-rays or other records

How do I reschedule or cancel an appointment?

Please provide us at least 48 hours notice so that we may allow other patients the opportunity to take your appointment and, if necessary, reschedule your visit. However, it is most courteous to call as soon as you realize you must reschedule or cancel. Please try to be on time for your appointment. If you are running late, call ahead and let the hospital know your estimated time of arrival.
