Chattanooga, Tenn. – The beginning of the school year is just around the corner. Have you scheduled an appointment for your child’s annual sports and school physical?
Erlanger Bledsoe Internal Medicine and Pediatrics wants to remind parents it is not too late for a well-visit check-up. Back-to-school check-ups include physical exam, reviewing family medical history, discussing behavior health, preventative medicine and updating the child’s vaccinations. If you have recognized some changes in your child or have questions about his/her development, the annual physical visit is a good time to address those concerns with the provider.
Not only pediatrics, but the practice offers medical services for the entire family. In fact, it is never too late for adults to get a check-up as well. Some parents may think it is more important for their child to be seen by a physician. In reality, it is critical for parents and caretakers to also remain well.
Nurse practitioner Pam Camp along with Jennifer Alvarez, M.D., Scott Dibrell, M.D., and David Sapp, M.D all specialize in pediatrics and adult care and are currently accepting new patients. Services include comprehensive care ranging from wellness exams and sick visits to the management of chronic illnesses.
Most insurance is accepted with either a physician office co-pay or $50 if not insured and collected at the time of the visit.
Conveniently located in Pikeville, Tenn., at 71 Wheelertown Ave., Erlanger Bledsoe Hospital offers residents of the Cumberland Plateau communities radiology, full-service laboratory, inpatient and outpatient therapy, 24/7 emergency room, telemedicine to Erlanger Baroness Campus in Chattanooga, Tenn., on-site helipad to assist with transports and Sequatchie Valley’s only cardiac rehabilitation program
