I am so intrigued about Black Doctors in Massachusetts because I rarely see them.
Shout-out to Black Doctors!!
AboutBlackBoston.com site viewers have been looking for primary care physicians and specialists. When requests for a black doctor is sent in by a viewer, its usually very specific. People will ask “do you know a black doctor that could …”
Have sent folks to explore Harvard Community Health center on Blue Hill Ave and the Whittier Health Center on Tremont. I’ve seen black interns at Boston Medical Center but I they weren’t doctors yet.
My family has been going to one of three Harvard Vanguard / Atrius Health Care facilities, due to insurance flow, and I’ve seen ZERO black doctors at these complexes, although I did see some photos of black staff doctors on the lobby directory at the Braintree location. I would recommend specialists at these facilities. No matter what, they are good. I would also recommend the Boston Medical Center and Davita Clinic in Brookline.
For two years I was the only field engineer based in Boston for a manufacturer of medical devices. I installed and maintaining mini-computer based brain and whole body scanners (CT SCAN) systems into the Faulkner Hospital, Pete Bent Brigham, New England Medical Center, Mt. Auburn Hospital, St. Elizabeth’s Hospital. I’ve made business trips out to hospitals in Salem, MA, Bangor Maine and spent a lot of time in Portsmouth, New Hampshire doing the work.
I can’t recall ever seeing a black doctor on any of these trips and I practically lived at some of these hospitals while maintaining the equipment, speaking to Radiology Department Directors, etc. I never saw a black doctor I can remember. To this day, my daughter is a Speech Pathologist with Rex UNC Healthcare of North Carolina and I’ve been there.
Although I have never been to the Codman Square, Uphrams Corner, Mattapan Community Health, Dimmock and RoxComp — except to install a WIFI building to building link at DIMMOCK — I would imagine that the staff is diverse in these locations.
