About our Physician Access Line:
The Physician Access Line is staffed by two full time Physician Access specialists, Nancy Limas and Melinda Carvalho. Nancy and Melinda are available Monday-Friday 8:30 am-5 pm to facilitate routine, urgent, and emergent appointments for your patients. We ask that this line be reserved for only referring physician practices (please do not distribute to patients) as a red carpet, concierge service. Please download our Physician Access Line Checklist for a few helpful hints when using the access line that can help to streamline the process.
Here are the phone numbers necessary if you are referring a patient to Tufts Medical Center or the Floating Hospital for Children.
