Better Health through Education

We focus on your health and well-being not only during your visits, but also by partnering with medical specialists within Cooley Dickinson and the Massachusetts General Hospital networks. For example, dietitians offer nutritional counseling through the Cooley Dickinson Medical Group Diabetes Center. A Mass General OB-GYN specializing in high-risk pregnancies consults with patients at Cooley Dickinson Medical Group Women’s Health.
