Virtual Visits

Many of our affiliated physicians, including North Shore Physicians Group, are increasing their use of virtual visits to continue caring for patients while maintaining social distance. Ask your doctor if this is an option for you. If you are a patient of North Shore Medical Center, North Shore Physicians Group or a Partners HealthCare provider, please also use Partners Patient Gateway to communicate with your doctor(s).
