About Us

I provide the Primary Medical services of Internal Medicine in a retainer based, or direct contract, setting, in a practice designed to put patient's medical care needs first and foremost. Appointments are generally scheduled in 30 minute intervals, giving time to learn about and understand the relevant medical issues. Comprehensive physicals are offered annually, and are scheduled in unhurried 1 1/2 to 2 hour blocks, and include comprehensive blood tests, and EKG with interpretation, along with the History and Physical. During business hours, there is always a live voice answering the phone, and, after hours, contact is available through my reliable answering service. Email is another means of communication for non-urgent matters. I am available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and have coverage with my associate, Dr. Rob Fields, when I am out of the office. The bulk of care is delivered here in the office, but I see my patients every day if they are admitted to MGH, and communicate thoroughly with physicians involved in their care if hospitalized at another institution. I perform housecalls when indicated, which is a wonderful way to get to truly know a patient. If a patient requires nursing home care, I also attend at 2 local Nursing and Rehabilitation facilities. I am the current Chairman of the Department of Medicine at MGH, and served for 10 years as the Chair of the Ethics Committee for MGH, and also serve as the Assistant Medical Director of JSSA Hospice, a non-denominational Hospice organization of the Jewish Social Services Agency. I am Board certified in Internal Medicine, and in Hospice and Palliative Medicine. I work with patients, in collaboration with any specialty consultants, to ensure a thorough understanding of their disease processes, which helps aid in compliance with a treatment plan. I believe in a patient's right of self-determination, and believe that they need to take responsibility for health choices that they may make. I commit myself to help guide them in their health choices. It is truly an honor to work as a physician, and I thoroughly enjoy the relationships that develop in this style of practice. Please visit my website for further information on my practice.
