Dr. Maria "Mima" M. Petrick joined Family Allergy and Asthma in April, 2007. She attended University of Tennessee-Memphis School of Medicine. After completing medical school, she served her internship and residency in internal medicine at Methodist Hospitals of Memphis. During that time she was especially privileged to serve a rotation with "one of the most well-known and respected" allergy specialists in the country, Dr. Phil Lieberman.
It was Lieberman, a colleague and personal friend of prominent local allergist Dr. James Sublett, who inspired her to pursue Allergy and Immunology as a subspecialty.
Dr. Petrick evaluated many great programs, was very pleased to be accepted to her top choice, St. Louis University in St. Louis, Missouri. She chose the program in particular because of another prominent practitioner in the field, Dr. Raymond Slavin, who is known worldwide for his work with fungal diseases.
Dr. Petrick was raised in Memphis, Tennessee, and attended Memphis State University, receiving a Bachelor of Science degree in 1987. Dr. Petrick went on to earn her Master of Arts in Teaching in 1988 and taught science for three years. During her summer breaks, she served as a Ranger in The National Park Service.
Dr. Petrick moved to Louisville from Los Alamos, New Mexico, where she served as an Allergist/Immunologist.
Dr. Petrick and her family, which includes her husband John and their three dogs Shiloh, Sydney and Zack, enjoy an active outdoor-oriented lifestyle which includes horseback riding, hiking, and camping.
