Virtual Visits/ Telemedicine

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 Mass General Brigham provider, please also use Patient Gateway to communicate with your doctor(s).
