  • I love to read my newspaper at the waterfront in Newburyport. I’m traditional. That’s what I like about my doctor and the office and Newburyport Medical Associates. I feel comfortable with them and they help me sustain good health — so I can do the things I love most.
    Bob Colomycki
  • I enjoy photography, especially capturing the beauty of birds in their natural settings. Sometimes I share my work with Newburyport Medical Associates and they take special interest, not only in my passion but in me—that’s a nice feeling.

  • As it is for most people, I realize health is of primary importance. I've been a patient with Newburyport Medical Associates for about 40 years, first with Dr. Mendelson and now with Jane Cleveland. If I have a question, or need an unexpected appointment, I can count on them. This is very reassuring.
