This is medical group concept is the best patient care concept to EVER come to Boston! It’s already it several other large metro areas, but Boston’s medical community resisted this format for a awhile, depriving Boston of a model patient – doctor care partnership that is long overdue and much needed.

One Medical Group has created an approach to primary care that’s a refreshing change from a typical doctor’s office. They believe that health care should be personal, accessible and affordable. Contrary to popular missinformation, all conceirge offices do not accept medical insurance – One Medical DOES accept medical insurances! And, their very low, reasonable, yearly fee of $199 is worth spending to gain access to your doctor via a app or the web. From the way you make your appointment (via the app!) to the ease with which you can follow up with your doctor (e-mail!) , they have rethought everything and make sure that you and your needs always come first. Most noticeable, One Medical respects your lifestyle by meeting with you on time, and by offering longer visits,which means you have more high-quality time with your doctor. And after your visit, the online services offered make it simple to contact your doctor , order medical records from your other treating physicians, request referrals to specialists and even renew prescriptions without coming in for a follow-up visit — saving you time and money and giving you peace of mind.
