Atlantic General Health System Pediatrician Earns Board Certification

01-22-2007

Munna Garg, M.D., a physician with the Ocean Pines Primary Care Office, recently earned his board certification from the American Board of Pediatrics. Until 2005, when Garg joined the Atlantic General Health System practice, the area offered little specialized care for infants and children. He is currently Worcester County’s only full-time pediatrician.

Garg completed a special, four-year dual residency program at West Virginia University that focused on both pediatrics and internal medicine. This type of residency is often used as a launch pad for a career in general practice, but Garg chose to immerse himself in the two subspecialties and is now board certified in both.

“Training in both pediatrics and internal medicine allowed me to follow my interest in family medicine while intensifying the focus on the various illnesses and healthcare issues that are unique to children and those that are unique to, let’s say, their grandparents,” said Garg.

Garg is currently accepting new patients in the Ocean Pines practice, which is located on Racetrack Road. Patients may call the Centralized Scheduling Line at 410-641-1082 to schedule an appointment.
