High Quality Child And Adolescent Care Is The Goal
Healthcare costs for the average family can be a large percentage of their household budget. The doctors and other medical staff at our Pediatrics Office in Franklin NC do their best to ensure that your child gets the care that he or she needs without having to spend a lot of money. The goal is to find and eliminate minor medical issues to ensure that they don’t become larger issues in the future.
Stay Out Of The Hospital If At All Possible
Parents who have their own insurance policy or insurance through the state may not have to pay the full cost of their child’s hospital stay. However, co-pays and other costs could still result in a bill of several hundred dollars. By using evidence based medicine and other best pediatrics practices, your child can go spend the night with his or friends instead of spending the night at the hospital.
Parents with children in Franklin, NC deserve to have access to doctors when their child is sick. Seeing a doctor early enough can prevent minor ailments from becoming larger maladies. That keeps healthcare costs down for everyone while improving the quality of care that children in Franklin receive.

She earned an athletic scholarship to Belmont University and played 4 years of Division I volleyball, leading two sports mission trips overseas to Zhitomer, Ukraine and Rio de Janero, Brazil during that time.

She loves the Georgia mountains and small town living, and enjoys spending time outside with her husband and toddler twins Luke and Lucy. Any remaining free time is spent with her Clayton Baptist church family, reading, and gardening in her flowerbeds.
