MEA was founded in 1979 by a group of physicians who understood that patients’ medical needs often occurred outside the traditional 8am to 5pm clinic setting. The first MEA Medical Clinic opened in Pearl and offered extended hours, including Saturday, with no appointment needed to see the doctor.
MEA now has sixteen clinics, with locations in Brandon, Byram, Canton, Clinton, Flowood, Flora, Laurel, Madison, North and South Jackson, Pearl, Richland, Ridgeland, Vicksburg and Yazoo City. The Ridgeland Primary Care Clinic was added in 1998 to provide a continuum of care. Now all of our MEA Clinics are Primary Care Plus Clinics. Additionally, MEA offers drug testing on-site and at all MEA Clinics. MEA also provides an Employee Assistance Program through MEA Cares.
Our mission at MEA Medical Clinics continues to be meeting the ambulatory and primary care needs of our patients in a manner that combines compassion and convenience. While our physicians strive to provide comprehensive healthcare, we do not represent or replace hospital emergency care; nor can we treat chronic pain syndromes.
However, as Primary Care Plus Clinics, all MEA locations offer a continuum of care for chronic conditions like hypertension, high cholesterol, diabetes and more.
For medical conditions outside the scope of our practice, MEA is committed to referring our patients to the appropriate specialist. At MEA Medical Clinics we pride ourselves on being where you need us, when you need us, with primary and ambulatory care for the entire family.
