Primary care at NSPG: your gateway to pulmonary medicine.

Our primary care specialists refer patients to NSPG pulmonary care physicians. We have primary care medicine specialists at locations throughout the North Shore. Adult patients typically choose to see an internal medicine doctor, while families sometimes prefer to see a family medicine doctor who can treat all members of the family.

Some patients opt to see a physician in our concierge medical practice, where the internal medicine physicians are able to provide more extensive attention to each of their patients. Finally, some patients find great benefit in participating in our shared medical appointments, where six to 10 patients meet with a physician at the same time for intensive education and group support.
