Welcome to our website - we're glad you're here!

Special Notice

We are requesting that patients arrive 15 minutes early for their appointments at this time. On 11/12/18, Essex County OB/GYN converted to the Epic EMR, connecting us with all Lahey Health providers. This new system will result in better coordination of your care, and also give you 24/7access to your health information through the My Lahey Chart patient portal. At your next visit, the receptionist will need to ask you several questions to update your chart in the new system. As we adjust to this new system, you may experience longer wait or appointment times. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this transition.

PATHways is now offline and has been replaced with the new Epic portal, "My Lahey Chart".
