About Us

Acton Medical Associates P.C. is an independently owned private practice. We are a committed group of internists and pediatricians who have united to provide convenient access to high quality primary care for patients of all ages. Because each physician owns his or her own practice, we have a strong commitment to clinical excellence. Our group is small enough that we can develop strong patient relationships and provide thoughtful decision-making, but large enough to meet most of our patients’ needs in our offices.

We offer diagnostic services, such as ultrasound, x-ray, and laboratory testing. We also provide weekend and holiday urgent care appointments, along with 24-hour on-call service.


Acton Medical was founded in 1955 by three physicians, Dr. Edgar D. Bell, Jr., Dr. Donnell W. Boardman, and Dr. Henry S. Harvey. Their goal was to provide high quality health care to the local community. Since then we have expanded to three locations, Acton, Harvard, and Littleton. We now employ a dedicated staff of over 200 medical professionals who continue in the pioneering tradition of the original founders to provide high quality care to the community.
