On Your Time: Our doctors are ready when it’s convenient for you

09/22/2015

Primary care at night or the weekend? No problem.

A visit with your primary care doctor—whether for an annual physical or to check out that nagging ache—can be tough to sandwich in between business meetings and a busy social or family life. But now Tufts Medical Center Primary Care offers extended hours: Monday through Thursday from 8 am to 8 pm, and Saturday from 8 am to noon.

“We know that people who live and work in Boston lead busy lives, and they need the ability to see their physician on their schedule, not the traditional doctor’s office schedule,” says Deborah Blazey-Martin, MD, MPH, Chief of Adult Internal Medicine and Primary Care at Tufts MC. “So we’ve expanded our hours to meet the demands of their lifestyles.”

It’s hard to know who’s busier—parents or their kids—and fortunately the general pediatricians at Floating Hospital for Children at Tufts Medical Center can also see kids after school, practice or games. Appointments—including both sick and well visits—can be scheduled from 8 am to 8 pm Monday through Thursday, 8 am to 5 pm Friday, and with sick visits available from 9 am to 12:30 pm on Saturday. No more excuses for skipping that flu shot (sorry, kids).
