Welcome to Main Street Pediatrics where you will find some of Baltimore's best pediatricians! At Main Street Pediatrics, our goal is to provide you with a comfortable, caring and complete medical home where you can come for all of your medical and family needs. Our website is a part of this home: whether you want to set up an appointment, check what you should do about an illness, read about current topics in pediatrics, learn more about the services we offer or just let us know how you think we're doing, our website brings many of the services Main Street offers directly to you.
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!
There is a new service being offered at Main Street. Everseat is an application you can use on your smartphone that is a family-friendly, convenient and efficient way to select appointments at our offices. Downloading the app is simple, just click here: app.everseat.com, or click the Everseat icon at the bottom of our home page. You can also visit the App Store or Google Play to download the Everseat app to your iPhone or Android. To sign up, you simply need to register your child (or if you have more than one child, then register each child), designate your regular pediatrician as your favorite, and let the app know when you are interested in making an appointment. A message is then sent to our receptionist who will confirm, or if necessary, arrange an alternate appointment. Appointments currently available through Everseat include acute illnesses, last minute available check-ups and some consultation visits. If we get a positive response from our patients about using Everseat, we hope to expand your scheduling capability through Everseat in the future.

Flu activity has picked up around the country this month, including here in Maryland, and is expected to last through April. Since October, there have been over 4,000 hospitalizations related to influenza. The highest risk groups for hospitalization are adults older than age 50, followed by kids under the age of 5. Although uncommon, complications from flu infections can be fatal, and these high risk groups are particularly vulnerable.
Fortunately, this year's flu vaccine appears to be a good match to the strains of flu we are seeing in Maryland. Main Street still has plenty of flu vaccine available. Please, if you have not received your flu vaccine, contact our office and we can arrange for you to receive it. As a reminder, the Centers for Disease Control recommends that everyone older than 6 months receive a flu vaccine.
