Hours & General Information
The Harvard Vanguard Post Office Square practice offers adult primary care, family medicine (adults and children), obstetrics and gynecology, and a wide range of medical and surgical specialty care to residents of Boston, Cambridge, Brookline, and other nearby cities and towns. We are conveniently located on Milk Street in downtown Boston, are accessible by public transportation, and have proudly cared for the community since 1984.

Medical advice is available to patients by telephone 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If you need medical advice after office hours, please call your doctor's office. Follow the phone prompts to be routed to our after-hours triage service staffed by nurse practitioners and physician assistants with access to your electronic medical record.
All patients have access to adult and pediatric weekend and holiday urgent care at our regionally located practices. Unless it is a life-threatening emergency (in which case you should call 911), you can use our weekend and holiday urgent care hours for most health-related situations.
