Dorothy McGrath has been spot on with everything in taking care of my father. Her knowledge is phenomenal and I would not want him in the care/oversight of anyone else. Her prior cardiac and cardiothoracic experience is indispensable. Dorothy has caught serious medical issues teams of doctors in Boston did not, we truly believe she has saved his life. Dorothy takes the time until the patient understands exactly what is happening and makes sure they feel as comfortable as possible.

Judy – Jun 01, 2020
Dorothy took quite a bit of time talking to get to know me personally. By doing so it not only made me feel that she was interested in me as a person, but by talking long enough with me, and more importantly really listening, was able to make an accurate diagnosis for my health condition. Health professionals must take the time to talk with patients. When they do, they get better insight on what is going on with the patient’s health, the patient gets more comfortable and willing to trust the health professional resulting in earlier results and successful treatment. Dorothy was friendly, made me feel comfortable talking to her, showed interest in listening to me, was really concerned to make my health better, didn’t rush me, and had insight on my health problem and how to treat it better than some doctors. I would highly recommend her.

My visits to Beacon Internal Medicine are always consistent and I love that!!! You enter into a healthy environment with a friendly and well prepared staff. Wait times are often very short when you are on time, and if you are early often you are taken early. A great incentive to be on-time or early for your appointments. Dorothy McGrath greets you as always, with a friendly smiling face, very professional and well prepared to discuss with you why you are there for a visit. Dorothy is very easy to communicate with and you feel, as though you are receiving very special care. I personally could not not be more happy with my care from Dorothy McGrath and all of the staff at Beacon Internal Medicine!!! Keep up the great service and care you provide!

I finally found a primary care physician that I would wholeheartedly recommend to my friends - and, I have, actually. Dorothy McGrath cares about my health. She is thorough. She listens, asks questions, and I feel that I can tell her anything. I don't feel rushed during my appointments and I have every confidence in her.

Dorothy McGrath is an exceptional PA who not only provides wonderful care, but she listens and understands. She's intelligent, kind and supportive. She's thorough and consistent. I trust her. When I left my appointment last week, she asked me to call her if I needed additional help. I feel like she genuinely cares about my health and well being.

Dorothy is the BEST! She doesn't rush you and lets you ask as many questions as you would like. She is very knowledgeable but is also the first to say that she will refer to a specialist to handle. I can't say enough wonderful things about Dorothy.

Dorothy is the most thorough, caring and sincere physician that I have met. She listened to my concerns, asked questions and always maintained eye contact. I left the appointment feeling relieved that I have a physician that I trust and can call on if I have a health concern.

So friendly, attentive, approachable, and able to provide the care and consideration I needed. She is easy to talk with, and the visit is more of a friendly chat (where she is still thoughtfully diagnosing and treating your issues) but with the personal connection many providers are lacking.

Bev C. – Feb 06, 2020
I have been seeing Dorothy McGrath for several years now. In the past two - three years I have seen her exclusively in preference to the Physicians. She is exactly what one would want in a health professional. She is a caring individual - she listens - she remembers. She is thorough - doesn't miss a trick. She knows when to call in a specialist outside of her practice and follows your progress. If she orders a test you get the results nearly as soon as she does. I am a retired nurse practitioner in critical care and I HIGHLY recommend Dorothy.
