Who We Are!

Reisterstown Office Tel: 410-526-7993

At Main Street Pediatrics, we believe in traditional pediatric care and caring. Here's what sets us apart:

  • We go to the hospital for newborn care. (We have privileges at Sinai Hospital, Greater Baltimore Medical Center and St. Joseph Medical Center, so we're delighted to see you and your newborn there.)
  • We offer you an individual dedicated Board certified pediatrician, who sees you for the vast majority of your visits, gets to know you and coordinates all your care.
  • Only our pediatricians cover our practice, day and night.
  • We regularly communicate with each other, if one of us sees or talks to a family, so your primary pediatrician is aware and can follow-up.
  • We get reports from consultants, hospitals, emergency rooms, urgent care centers, to try to assure your child receives the best care possible.
  • We dedicate an appropriate amount of time for each illness and well visit, so that issues and concerns can be discussed.
  • We make ourselves available by phone 24/7 and by email/messaging via our patient portal for more routine issues.
  • We prefer to see our own patients and assure you receive the careful comprehensive care you deserve for any illness / issue. Call us anytime for urgent issues and we'll figure out how best to proceed. If we can see you and save you from avoidable/expensive urgent care and emergency room visits, we are happy to do so.
  • We will come into the office Saturday and Sunday for illness visits. (Call early on Saturday or Sunday mornings, 8-930am.)
  • You can also now go on-line with the Everseat App and make an appointment with your doctor for the next day (very helpful in the evening or at night).


At Main Street Pediatrics, we offer the best doctors, dedicated to providing the highest quality, comprehensive, and compassionate pediatric care that we can. We love what we do!

Announcements

Main Street Pediatrics is delighted to offer you Telehealth services. Your physician will need to determine if a telehealth type visit (phone and video) would be medically appropriate as well as whether telehealth services are covered by your insurance carrier. If you are interested, please contact our office to inquire further.

+ Click to read more...

Situations that may be appropriate for a telehealth visit include:

- Discussion visits about medical, emotional or behavioral concerns when you or the patient are unable to make an office visit (for example, for a college student living away from home or if there are significant transportation issues to the office).

- A dermatology only visit (simple rash with no other concerning symptoms)

- Certain after hour situations which may be better assessed by telehealth than just a phone call.

The following insurers offer telehealth visit coverage through Main Street Pediatrics: All Blue Cross/Blue Shield policies (EXCEPT Federal employees) as well as all LifeBridge Health based insurances. These insurers will cover a telehealth visit as if it were an office visit (same copay or deductibles would apply). We are working with other insurers to expand coverage for these services. In addition, you must be located in Maryland or an adjacent state for insurance to cover a telehealth visit.


With the first confirmed case of measles in Baltimore, we have had many inquiries from our families about how to protect their children from getting measles. Fortunately, there are clear current guidelines from the Department of Health that we endorse and would like to share with you.

+ Click to read more...

The current situation is NOT considered an outbreak in Baltimore. However, there are situations where your child should get an earlier than usually recommended measles vaccine:

  • if your child has had direct exposure, eg, within a building, to a known case of measles
  • if you are traveling to a specific location that has been designated as a significant outbreak area (within the community of outbreak)
  • if you are hosting a guest in your home who is from a community of active measles outbreak

Our offices administer the Measles vaccine at the one year old and four year old checkups. If you think your child meets one of these criteria and needs an earlier vaccine, please contact our office to arrange for this to happen. If you believe that you have another reason that your child should receive an early MMR vaccine, we encourage you to discuss this with our staff. We also wanted to ask that if you think that your child may have measles, please call our office first for advice. Given the contagiousness of measles, we need to exercise caution in arranging for care.


We have received our first shipments of flu vaccine. We strongly recommend that everyone over the age of six months, including all caregivers, receive a flu vaccine each year. Flu is the most common infectious cause of significant illness, hospitalization and death every winter. The flu vaccine is the most effective way to reduce the chance of catching the flu. It's also been shown that, even if one still gets the flu illness after vaccination, the illness is a much milder form.

So, please contact our office to schedule your child's and family's flu vaccine visit as soon as possible (you can get the most convenient times). We will have times available on most days our offices are open and have also set aside some dedicated days for flu vaccines on days when schools are closed as well as some weekends. Our offices can also offer flu vaccine to parents and grandparents for your convenience.
