I ended up at the Riverside Health Center in a near-emergency because I didn't have a regular primary care doctor. The staff is friendly, the doctors are caring and attentive, and now I've stayed on as one of their patients. Dr. Karanja is kind and reasonable, and Annie, the nurse practitioner, really listens. I recommend her especially for women who've been blown off by other doctors. The Riverside is about a five minute walk from Central Square. There is a large West Indian staff and patient base, so that population will feel especially at home here.
