Charles River Medical Associates, healthcare designed around you.
We understand that a doctor’s appointment is an interruption to your day, and there’s probably something you’d rather be doing instead. Plus, increasingly complex clinical care and insurance coverage rules make it difficult to manage your care on your own.
Charles River Medical Associates seeks to alleviate those inconveniences by keeping your medical experience seamless, high-quality and hassle-free. By offering you leading-edge care across a wide variety of specialties at over 15 locations, we can find the right physician for you. We believe that offering medical diagnostic services to support our doctors results in better care, and thus we offer a number of testing and imaging services to efficiently diagnose your health issue and get you back to living your life outside the doctor’s office.
