Dr. Mary E King has the following 3 specialties
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.
- Adult Medicine
- Family Medicine
A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.
- HIV Infections
- AIDS/HIV (Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome)
- Hepatitis C

My sister has Dr. King as a primary care physician. She has been suffering with lower back pain for the last 6 months now. Went to Dr. King and nothing was recommended. She went again. Nothing. After the 3rd visit, they recommended physical therapy. No x-ray, no MRI. In the meantime, her pain is so bad, she can't sleep or have a normal quality of life. She went to the physical therapist and not much help. She called Dr. King's and the receptionist called her back to tell her there was nothing that they could do. The dr. didn't bother to call her. I took her to the emergency room about a month 1/2 ago and with insurance regulations, the emergency room dr. would not give her an xray or MRI. She was sent back to her primary (Dr. King). She was then sent to a specialist and had to wait a month to see them. The specialist gave her an x-ray. Nothing showed up and she was told to go home stretch. In the meantime, she is still in horrible pain, the pain is traveling down her legs making her knees weak and the pain is now in her arms. She is trying to work and is a mother of two. I begged her to call Dr. King today. She called and spoke to the receptionist and cried. The receptionist said she would call her back. OMG. She called her back and told her there is nothing they can do. I immediately picked up the phone and called. I explained my sister's situation and said that I would like the doctor to call my sister back, that a doctor should be addressing the issue, not the receptionist. I am completely and utterly disgusted.
I had a horrible experience with my first doctor after moving to western Mass. Then I found Dr. King. She's great. She spends the time to talk to you and understand your condition. She respected my views about medications and counseled me accordingly. She is always available; if you need to get in, her office staff (who are also great) will make it happen. She's smart and funny and caring. I'm glad I found her!
i NEEDED TO FIND A NEW INTERNIST, WHICH WAS NOT EASY TO DO IN MA. I WAS GIVEN DR. KING'S NAME BY MY OBGYN PHYSICIAN. MY VISIT WAS THOROUGH,COMPASSIONATE AND SHE SHOWED A GREAT SENSE OF HUMOR.DR. KING IS THE TYPE OF DOCTOR THAT ONE DOES NOT GET NERVOUS ABOUT GOING TO SEE. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HER.
