Mission Statement

To preserve and improve our patients’ quality of life through preventive and effective medical care; we will constantly work to ensure the care we give is appropriate and of the highest standards; and to be just in our dealings with patients, their families, our employees and ourselves.

Whether you have already chosen us for your child’s care or are just looking around, Knoxville Pediatric Associates (KPA) welcomes you to our site!

KPA’s main goal is to provide the best possible care for your child while building close doctor-patient relationships based on trust and compassion. This group of doctors was formed in 1996 by the merging of two of the oldest, most well established pediatric practices in Knoxville – Knoxville Pediatric Group and Pediatric Associates of Knoxville. In 1998, the former Foothills Pediatric Group in Maryville joined. With the talents that now make up KPA, we take pride in having the best pediatricians in the Knoxville area.

While the goals and philosophies of the three groups of physicians are the same, there remain some slight differences in practice styles between the three. For this reason, we have chosen to maintain the integrity of each of the three practices within the larger merged group. For instance, there are now five offices which make up three distinct practice settings. The practice settings are Clinch or Cross Park, Weisgarber or Farragut, and the Foothills Office. Although we are 31 pediatricians staffing five offices, our families choose only one of the practice settings to receive care for their children.

Without exception, each of our pediatricians is required to be board certified and maintain certification by the American Board of Pediatrics. This means that all have completed an approved training program and subsequently passed a Board exam to ensure that their skills are appropriate. This is a baseline from which we continually try to build a practice that cares for your medical needs and as importantly cares for you as a parent and your child as a patient. We encourage you to assist us in providing the highest quality of care by keeping us informed of ways that we can improve our service.

Thanks for visiting!
