The Somerville practice of Harvard Vanguard Medical Associates has been caring for patients since 1990. The office is conveniently located in the heart of Davis Square, next to the MBTA station Holland Street exit (Red Line).
Our Somerville practice provides primary care for adults and children and a wide range of medical and surgical specialty care. Our preferred hospital partners include Mount Auburn Hospital, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Winchester Hospital and Boston Children’s Hospital.
Please note: Beginning on March 1st, the owners of the Somerville practice’s building are having the elevators serviced over the next couple of months. Both elevators will not be out of order at the same time, so patients will always have access to one. We do recommend, however, that you try to arrive a few minutes earlier than you normally would to accommodate any delay caused by having only one elevator in operation. If you are physically capable, the stairs are also an option.
