Pediatrician Staff

Meet our team at Sewanee Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine!  Please take a few moments to learn about our skilled practitioners.

We consider it both a great joy and responsibility to care for your children.  Most of us are parents ourselves, so we strive to be understanding and available to the families that we serve.  We are honored that you have chosen us as your child's primary care provider and are confident that you will be pleased with the quality of care that we provide to you and your family.

A vital part of our practice is our outstanding staff who works hard to manage and maintain a professional, caring and supportive environment for our patients.  Our practitioners are lifelong learners.  Not only have they received advanced medical training specific to pediatrics, but they continually pursue ongoing education to stay up to date in pediatric medicine. 

Your child's health is as important to us as it is to you.  We look forward to providing you with the excellent medical care that your child deserves.
