Effective March 31, 2020, due to the COVID-19 crisis, and for the health and safety of our patients and staff, we have temporarily suspended operations at this practice. Should you need care, please continue to call your doctor’s office. We are reaching out to patients to re-schedule affected appointments with in-person visits for urgent needs at one of our other practice locations, with phone or video visits, or for a later date. We are committed to supporting our patients through this challenging time. Calls are being re-routed and our staff will direct you as appropriate for medical advice, services, and care. Thank you.

The Harvard Vanguard Cambridge practice has been caring for residents of Cambridge, Somerville, Arlington, and other nearby cities and towns since 1979.  The office is conveniently located between Harvard and Inman Squares, opposite Cambridge Rindge and Latin School and next to the Youville and Cambridge Hospitals.

Our Cambridge practice provides primary care for adults and children, as well as a wide range of medical and surgical specialty care. Our preferred hospital partners include Mount Auburn Hospital, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston Children's Hospital and New England Baptist Hospital.
