New Patient Information

Thank you for choosing us to help you with your upper extremity problem. For an urgent or emergent appointment, please call us directly at 781-890-2133.

To make an appointment you may call the office (781-890-2133) or for non-emergent or non-urgent appointments you can start the scheduling process by going to our website. There is online scheduling through the main BSSC website.

Please make sure to have the appropriate referral with you. Please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment to allow time for parking, finding the office and any last minute problems. We will do our best to stay on time, however medical emergencies do occur; therefore, please let us know as early as possible of any time constraints. 

If you are injured at work, The Hand Center at Boston Sports & Shoulder Center is committed to providing outstanding, compassionate care as we evaluate, treat and help you recover from a broad range of work-related injuries. Our physicians know that recovery can be a difficult process, and we pride ourselves on providing a friendly and comfortable atmosphere while we expedite your care to get you back to work in a timely and safe manner.

While our physicians treat your physical needs, our Workers Compensation Department will facilitate necessary insurance approvals, schedule appointments and be available to help guide you through the sometimes complex workers compensation process.

For workers compensation adjusters and nurse case managers, we offer direct access to our expert Workers Compensation Coordinators, who are available to provide any assistance you may need and to answer your questions as we assist your employee in recovering from their injury and returning to work. We offer timely appointments, and will send office notes and work status to both adjusters and nurse case managers shortly following each appointment.

When it comes to getting the right care for work-related injuries, trust our expert orthopaedists here at Boston Sports & Shoulder Center. To schedule an appointment, please call the Workers Compensation Department at (781) 890-2133 ext 113. Please have the name of the insurance company and claim number available when you call.

For motor vehicle accidents we do not accept the accident insurance so please call the office. Your "regular" health insurance can not be used until your accident insurance (PIP) is exhausted. Please call (781) 890-2133 ext 113.

For all new patient appointments and new injuries or problems please bring the following that relate to your problem. This will help us fully evaluate you:

  • All previous medical records
  • All previous x-rays (include CAT scans & MRIs), reports, and actual images (usually on CD/DVD)
  • Previous splints used or a description of the splint
  • Referral
  • Insurance card and information
  • Photo ID 

We have onsite x-ray at all locations and onsite therapy therapy at some locations to help provide comprehensive care. Emergent CAT scans and MRI’s can often be done the same day. So please plan accordingly.
