New Patients

COMMERCIAL INSURANCE - We accept most major commercial insurance carriers with the exception of, but not limited to, BlueCross BlueShield Network E, UHC Core, and UHC Navigate. Please contact your insurance to verify that we are providers with your child's insurance plan.

MEDICAID - We are providers with the standard BlueCare TennCare network. However, we are NOT providers for any other TennCare MCO (managed care organization), including BlueCare/TennCare Select. Please contact our office to verify that we are accepting NEW BlueCare patients, as this changes from time to time. 

VACCINES - Our physicians adhere to the American Academy of Pediatrics' recommendations for childhood immunizations.  We will not accept new patients whose parents have made the decision not to vaccinate their child.

AGE POLICYWe accept new patients from newborn to 16 years of age. We do not accept new patients who are 17 years of age or older.

* He/she has graduated from high school, is 18 years of age and chooses not to attend college.

PLEASE NOTE: It is our policy that a parent, not a friend or family member, accompany their child to the first visit.  After the first visit, you may designate a friend or family member over the age of 18 to bring your child to future visits by listing them under "Consent" on the "New Patient Information" sheet of the New Patient Packet.  Please read the first page of this packet carefully as it outlines our Office Policies.
