Steve Zivich - Primary Care Doctor in Boston Massachusetts

Steve Zivich, M.D.

The late night study groups cramming for biology exams with friends were some of the more memorable times in college. Being able to combine personal relationships and learning the sciences made it enjoyable… quality coffee helped as well. The applications of science as it applies to people’s lives makes medicine my ideal career.

As a family medicine doctor I get the privilege to get to know people, their motivations, assist people towards their goals and support them through hardships. Working closely with people and the constant desire to learn more is why I want to be a physician.

I completed my undergraduate degree in Biology with a minor in Music at the James Madison University in Virginia. I attended Virginia Commonwealth University School of Medicine, completed a Surgical Internship at Boston Medical Center and Residency in Family Medicine in 2015 at Drexel University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

After completion of my training, I returned to Boston to work at Community Health Center. The most rewarding part of being a physician is making a positive difference in my patients’ lives. I always enjoyed the time I spend with my patients, but I found that the barriers and restrictions placed by insurance companies was preventing me being the doctor I sought out to be.

I was ecstatic to find a new style of medical practice called Direct Primary Care (DPC) that would allow me to focus on the doctor-patient relationship. DPC allow for quality time with my patients, without having to rush through visits or adjust necessary medical therapies based simply on what insurance dictated. This allows me to keep the focus on where health care belongs: on you, the patient.

My areas of special interest include preventative health and management of chronic illnesses, including HIV; metabolic diseases such as diabetes and obesity; sports-related injuries; and caring for patients in the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender communities.

I currently reside in the South End. I spend much of my free time with friends and in the gym weight training, currently I am preparing for a bodybuilding competition. I love experimenting with new recipes and creating meals that bring friends together… and trying out new restaurants when the experiments go awry.

I’m excited to be a part of the lives of the patients of Boston Direct Health, and to finally be able to be the family doctor that I have always wanted to be and that you deserve.

    Having a Direct Primary Care Physician like Dr Steve Zivich has been a win-win. In a world of productivity in health care something can be lost. I grew up with an Uncle who was my primary care physician and the care Ol' Doc Polatty offered was the gold standard and the norm all at the same time. Now again with Boston Direct Health I have that connection and care that not only work but works well with me. Dr. Z brings heart to his care and makes it relatable in meeting the patient where you're at.

    Dr. Zivich was my doctor while he was practicing in Philly and I couldn't be happier with his care. Many of the issues I had medically were both embarrassing to discuss for me as a person and as a member of the LGBT community. Dr. Zivich (or Dr. Steve as I refereed to him as) was never judgmental and always incredibly helpful in making me well again even when one of the illnesses returned and it made life very difficult. It was nice having a doctor who is knowledgeable but also very personable and making Malory Archer jokes instead of robotic medical droid. More doctors need to be like Dr. Steve!

    Having Dr. Zivich as my primary care physician for the past three years has been such an amazing experience. He has always gone above and beyond to be there for me. If his schedule is already full, he still makes extra time in the day to see me. When I have a long list of questions, he patiently answers every single one. He is incredibly prompt to answer my messages, even at night and on weekends, and encourages me to always approach him with any concern, no matter how small. Additionally, I am a very active athlete, and Dr. Zivich’s extensive knowledge in fitness leaves me feeling like I am in the best hands when it comes to keeping my body in tip-top condition. Most importantly, what keeps me coming back to Dr. Zivich is his authenticity and genuine care as a health provider. He makes it clear that I am much more than just another patient. I am a person with concerns and worries who is trusting him with my health, and he takes this responsibility very seriously.
