Maurice Greenbaum, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

Medicine is a partnership between doctor and patient – a partnership based on mutual trust and respect that is earned. In my MDVIP-affiliated primary care practice, I offer a personalized healthcare approach similar to concierge care. In this role, I have the time to develop close and personal relationships with my patients and their families, as well as provide the most individualized and effective care possible in times of need.

I have practiced internal medicine in Salem, Massachusetts for greater than 36 years and serve patients in communities throughout the north Boston area, including Lynn, Lynnfield, Beverly, Hamilton, Wenham, Ipswich, Peabody, Salem, Revere, Danvers and beyond. My hospital affiliation is with North Shore Medical Center, and I also work with specialists throughout the Partners’ system, including Mass General Hospital and Brigham and Women’s Hospital.

In addition to general primary care, I have a special interest in infectious diseases. I was the first infectious diseases specialist at North Shore Medical Center with a particular interest in hospital epidemiology. I also am a member of The Infectious Diseases Society of America as well as The Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America.
