Emerson Primary Care Associates of Bedford

Welcome to Emerson Primary Care Associates of Bedford. Our board-certified physicians and excellent staff are equipped to provide you with high-quality health care—conveniently, right in your community. We are invested in caring for the best possible care for our patients and are available to provide a wide range of preventive services.

Our skilled primary care physicians provide state-of-the-art care onsite or will partner with outstanding specialists with whom we work closely. Our physicians emphasize prevention, with a focus on diet, exercise and stress reduction. We listen to our patients with the goal of treating the whole person. We also have additional expertise in geriatrics, vascular medicine and nephrology (care of kidney disease).

In addition to the physicians, our staff includes a highly experienced nurse practitioner, behavioral health specialists and a phlebotomist who takes blood samples. The practice has a small onsite lab.

As our patients know, we spend time with them and are committed to addressing their concerns.
