New Urgent Care Hours at Braintree

Starting this Saturday, October 5, 2013, our Braintree practice will be changing the hours they are open on the weekends and holidays for pre-scheduled, urgent care appointments.  The hours will be as follows:

                                   New Hours                                      Old Hours

Saturdays:               9am – 4pm                                          10am – 5pm

Sundays:                  10am – 3pm                                        12pm – 5pm

Holidays:                 varies based on the holiday.  Please check our website 2-4 business days in advance of any holiday for a listing of practices open for urgent care and their hours.

At Braintree and at all of our practices, we will continue to offer telephone medical advice 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  All you have to do is call your doctor’s office.  After regular office hours, phones are transferred to a team of Harvard Vanguard medical staff who can access your electronic medical record and provide medical advice and information by phone.

If necessary, our staff can consult an on-call Harvard Vanguard physician, schedule a next-day appointment with your doctor’s office, advise you to visit the emergency room, or if it’s a weekend or holiday, schedule you for a weekend/holiday urgent care appointment at Braintree or one of our 5 other practices in Boston (Kenmore), Chelmsford, Peabody, Somerville, or Wellesley that provide urgent care.

If you think you are experiencing a life-threatening emergency, you should always call 911 or your local emergency number immediately.
