Rachel Mott-Keis


Dr. Mott Keis is a native of Massachusetts who completed her residency at BMC over 20 years ago and has remained ever since, practicing primarily at East Boston Neighborhood Health Center. Though her formal education was attained in Massachusetts; Boston College, University of Massachusetts Medical School and our own Boston University Family Medicine Residency program, she spent a highly educational year volunteering at a transitional housing program for elderly homeless men in Seattle, WA through the Jesuit Volunteer Corp. This year helped shape and cement her interests in working with underserved populations. Her current focus is on immigrant health, in particular Hispanic and Latinx. While at BMC, she served as Co-President of the house officer’s union (CIR) and Co-Chief Resident. She is proficient in Spanish, lives with her husband and two children, loves to read, is active with friends, watches and plays numerous sports and enjoys the outdoors from the beach to the mountains.
