The prestigious Morehouse School of Medicine (MSM) wanted to provide quality medical care to people who haven't always had a chance to get that kind of care. In 1985 that dream came true with the founding of Morehouse Medical Associates, Inc. (MMA).
Today, MMA is made up of more than 100 practicing physicians who also share their extensive knowledge as clinical faculty of MSM. Having doctors who are also teachers is beneficial because to be selected an MSM teacher, our doctors must have outstanding medical reputations and have a track record for making significant contributions to medical science. Furthermore, because our doctors are teaching the next generation of great physicians, they are always on the leading edge of the latest medical research and techniques.
It is no wonder MMA is one of the largest physician groups in Georgia and one of the state's premier primary care and multi-specialty medical practices. MMA's focus continues to be providing quality health care to Atlanta's multi-cultural community.
We offer a unique and comprehensive line of health services all under one umbrella. For routine health care, MMA offers primary care physicians in four different areas. Our physicians are specialists in more than 20 fields and affiliated with some of Atlanta's best-known hospitals.
You can depend on MMA to be your main source of health care, healthy living, and preventive health education.
The vision of Morehouse Medical Associates is to become a leading provider of excellence in clinical services and programs, with emphasis on patient care, health promotion and disease prevention.
