In 1976, Dr. Stanley Sagov and Dr. Richard Feinbloom started the Family Practice Group in Cambridge, MA. They loved practicing Family Medicine, teaching medical students and residents, and doing research that answered important questions about patient care. Sagov and Feinbloom wrote a vision of the practice in the mid-1970s which included concepts that the medical community still considers cutting edge and innovative today. After eight years, Richard moved on to lead other developments in Family Medicine in several locations. FPG continued as a teaching practice with medical school affiliations with Harvard Medical School, and then Tufts, UMASS, and BU.
In 2006, Dr. Sagov handed the baton of leadership of the practice to his long-time colleagues, Karen Hinchen PA-C, Dr. Laura Zucker, Dr. Wayne Altman, and Jennifer Hillery JD, CPC. The new leadership team renamed the practice, “Family Practice Group, The Sagov Center for Family Medicine,” in order to cement Dr. Sagov’s legacy with FPG in perpetuity. Dr. Sagov continued as a family physician with FPG until June of 2021. He has continued his medical career since then as a medical educator.
We are old-style family doctors, but our care is backed by teams, a network of specialists and modern technology.
We are committed to medical education, and our office is an active training site for medical schools, residency programs and physician assistant schools.
While students are a part of our health care team, you reserve the right to decline being seen by a student.
