Dr. Timothy O Mcbride has the following 2 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.
A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

I only saw Dr. McBride for a few months when his practice was in Norton,VA. For 2 years I had been using a walker and a wheelchair to get around. My life consisted of nothing but moving from bed, to chair, to couch, back to bed. No doctors believed that someone who was under 30 years of age and wasn't a coal miner could have back problems. On my first visit McBride order a slew of MRI, CT, Xrays, etc. Come to find out I had a tiny sliver of my L5 vertebrae that had broke off and had been compressing my spinal column. For 5 years I suffered with extreme pain, and nothing helped... nothing! He had me scheduled for surgery within the following week and I was walking without assistance the next day. Dr McBride gave me my life back... and not through medication... through proper patient care. He was so compassionate and caring and was determined to find the source of my problem. He took his time with me and listened intently to everything I said. Excellent bed side manners. I hate that he had to move from the area due to false rumors and horrific allegations. I've yet to find another doctor as nice, caring and understanding as Dr. McBride
