Main Street Medical Clinic was founded in 2003. Our goal is to provide quality care for children and adults of all ages. Our Physicians specialize in Internal Medicine & Pediatrics, a specialty sometimes referred to as "Med/Peds".
Med/Peds physicians have combined training in both Internal Medicine (adults) and Pediatrics (children). They can see patients of all ages, and are considered primary care providers. They are different from Family Practice physicians in that their training is more specialty-focused and they have greater hospital training.
An internist provides long-term, comprehensive care in the office and the hospital, managing both common and complex illness of adolescents, adults, and the elderly. Internists are trained in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer, infections, and diseases affecting the heart, blood, kidneys, joints, and digestive, respiratory, and vascular systems.
Internists are also trained in the essentials of primary care internal medicine, which incorporates an understanding of disease prevention, wellness, substance abuse, mental health, and effective treatment of common problems of the eyes, ears, skin, nervous system, and reproductive organs.
Pediatricians practice the specialty of medical science concerned with the physical, emotional, and social health of children from birth to young adulthood. Pediatric care encompasses a broad spectrum of health services ranging from preventive health care to the diagnosis and treatment of acute and chronic diseases.
Pediatricians understand the many factors that affect the growth and development of children. They understand that children are not simply small adults. Children change rapidly, and they must be approached with an appreciation for their stage of physical and mental development.
Pediatricians are primarily concerned with the health, welfare, and development of children and adolescents; they are uniquely qualified to provide care for children because of their specialized training and concern for their well-being. Pediatricians achieve their competency through training, experience, and continuing education.
