To improve the health care of our patients, we are installing a new electronic medical records system. Staff may be a bit slower than usual, and wait times may increase during this transition. Please be patient with us as we make this change. Staff are available in the waiting rooms to address any concerns patients have. The new electronic medical records system is funded in part by grants awarded by the Massachusetts Development Finance Agency and CVS Caremark. You can read more about these grants here and here.
