Our practice began in 1965 as a solo family medicine office founded by Dr. Robert Bessom. Dr. Bessom was instrumental in bringing Family Medicine to the Swampscott area. Through his dedication to medicine and to this community, he built a solid foundation of kind, compassionate longitudinal care for patients of all ages.

Dr. Spartos joined Dr. Bessom in 1977 and Dr. Nobil and Dr. Barker joined the group in 1983 and 1984 respectively. Since that time, The Family Doctors, LLC has continued to provide compassionate and up-to-date medical care for our patients. As family physicians, we provide both preventative and urgent care to patients; our preventative care includes yearly physical exams, gynecological care and well child care.
