MGH Concierge Services

Concierge Medicine – Ongoing Primary Care-643-2132  |  Executive Health Services: +1-617-726-4444

The Concierge Medicine practice at Mass General provides students and families with an exceptionally high level of service from their Mass General primary care physician, including 24/7 access, preventive care, health screening, wellness, fitness and coordination of advanced care across the hospital, if needed. Because they see fewer patients every day than a traditional primary care doctor, concierge physicians have more time to dedicate to each individual. They understand your health and wellness needs and coordinate your care. Depending on the situation, this may help avoid the need for urgent care or emergency room visits. Members must carry insurance to cover their care and co-pays, and pay an annual membership fee.
