Shared Medical Appointments

Watch Channel 5 WCVB-TV's piece on shared medical appointments, including NSPG's offering.

Current shared medical 90 minute appointments:

North Shore Physicians Group (NSPG) offers shared medical appointments for patients with a variety of diseases or conditions. Appointments are conducted in a group setting with a physician, multidisciplinary team and six to ten other patients.

Individual consultations and benefits of shared appointments

Shared medical appointment patients also receive an individual consultation and review of medications or tests. During the shared appointment, patients get the benefit of the group education session and of sharing the experiences of other patients. All participating patients sign a confidentiality agreement.

Can You Get More from Your Checkup If You Share It with Strangers?

NSPG is featured in this article:

"Allison has a roomful of observers who feel her pain—almost literally. Around her, in a loose semicircle, are three other patients with back problems awaiting their own turns with the doctor, Terence Doorly, MD. They're all first-time patients of his and have signed up to see him in a group session.
