I opened my solo Med/Ped practice in February 2002 for the primary care of children and adults. Primary care practices that offer only care for adults (Internal Medicine) or children (Pediatrics) do not offer the kind of family care that can be provided by a Med/Ped doctor. A Med/Ped doctor is one that is trained in both Internal Medicine and Pediatrics. Caring for all members of the family provides a unique insight into the needs of each patient and leads to a better understanding of each patient, which in turn leads to more efficient care and longer doctor-patient relationships. In addition, pediatric patients do not have to find a new doctor just because they turn 18 years old!
