Dr. Mary Ann King, DO, is a pediatrician practicing in our Amory office. She joined P&S in 2010.
Since her childhood with a chronically ill sibling, Dr. King has been determined to be a doctor.
“I always wanted to do more for him, so I thought if I were a doctor, I could do that.”
Dr. King almost immediately fell in love with pediatrics. She enjoys the continuity of care, watching her patients grow and seeing what they become as adults.
“The thing about my specialty that I love is I can see a newborn and eventually see them graduate and one day start their own family. I have had the pleasure of treating lots of my patients from birth and then starting over by taking care of their children.”
Well-known for taking time to listen to her patients and families, Dr. King’s patients leave feeling like they have been heard and genuinely cared for. She wants her patients to know that she will treat their children like their own, and that their time and opinion are important.
Dr. King has a special interest in ADHD, behavior/sensory issues, and acid reflux. She also particularly enjoys seeing newborns and children with special needs.
When at home with her husband, Matt, and her children, Dr. King is active in her church choir. She is a band mom, so you can often find her at band competitions and football games. But if she had her pick, Dr. King would spend all her free time at Disney World.
“My son loves doctor King and no matter what she does whatever she needs to do to make sure her babies are all taken care of. Also she does whatever she needs to to find out what is wrong with your child. We love Dr king.” – Meghan B.
“Dr.King is a great Pediatrician! She is very sweet to my kids and takes her time to figure out what is wrong with my kids. I have a newborn and a 7 yr old. She is very good with both. She also makes sure you get the best care possible too. They answer your messages about your sick kid pretty fast too when you leave a voice mail with a nurse. Also they make sure to get your child in as soon as possible when they are sick. Great place to take your kids to if your looking for a reliable doctor for your children!” – B.G.
