Welcome to PHCA!

The physicians and nurse practitioners of Pediatric Health Care Associates (PHCA) have provided primary medical care to children and adolescents on the North Shore of Boston for over 40 years. We look forward to helping you keep your children healthy, safe, and happy. Our practice is able to offer the widest range of clinical services and appointment availability of any pediatric practice in the region without sacrificing the quality, family-centered care you and your child will receive at each of our offices.

My Chart - PHCA's Patient Portal

We encourage every patient and family at PHCA to open and keep active a MyChart Patient Portal account. MyChart offers you online access to your medical information as well as a direct line of communication with PHCA staff and providers. With MyChart, you get the convenience of online appointment scheduling and online bill pay. You can request medication refills, as well as print out health forms and immunization records on your own, without having to contact or come into the office.  Before your well visit, complete any forms such as required developmental and behavioral screens, which saves time, and allows you more time with your provider to get your questions answered. Review lab results directly and receive follow up recommendations from your provider based on those results. 

If you’re not yet active on MyChart, speak with any PHCA staff member during your next visit, and we can get you registered! MyChart can be accessed through any web browser, as well as via the MyChart App on iPhone and Android devices (**choose PPOC-Pediatric Physicians of Childrens when doing first time set up of the mobile app**).
