  • Selecting a Primary Care Doctor/Provider (PCP) is an important step in becoming a part of the Codman Square Health Center Family. Our Patient Service Center staff can help you figure out which providers have the most availability

Please take the time to review the doctors featured in our Provider Directory to decide whom you would visit most frequently. Whomever you choose, we want you to feel comfortable asking questions and spending time with your doctor. We want you to trust the advice your provider gives you and feel that you can talk openly and establish a partnership with him or her. As important as credentials are, it is the ability of the provider to comfortably interact with you and meet all your health needs that really counts. If you feel that a PCP is not a good fit for you, you may select a different one.
