Together, we make a great team.
At HMG Pediatrics, understanding and caring for children are what we do best. Prior to making a quick diagnosis based on "textbook" symptoms, we listen to you and your child to make sure we clearly understand any medical concerns or fears at hand.
You see, while we may be the experts when it comes to pediatric medicine, we believe that you, as the parent or guardian, are the expert when it comes to your child. Together, we make a great team.
A Comprehensive Focus
With a pediatric and adolescent medicine focus that includes children from birth through 21 years of age, it is our goal to provide the best pediatric care within our region. This care includes well-child checks, chronic medical care and acute care in both the outpatient and inpatient settings, and specialized care.
HMG recognizes that children often have special pediatric needs. For this reason, our providers bring with them diversified areas of pediatric subspecialties and pediatric special interests, ranging from adolescent medicine to pediatric gasroenterology. Learn more.
Pediatric After-Hours Clinic
As an HMG pediatric patient, you enjoy exclusive access to HMG's provision of a dedicated Pediatric After-Hours Clinic. Staffed by HMG pediatricians and nurse practitioners, you will enjoy the peace of mind knowing that your child is receiving after-hours care from a team of highly experienced pediatric providers. Learn about our hours and location for our Pediatric After-Hours Clinic in Kingsport.
Telemedicine in Kingsport City Schools
HMG is privileged to work closely with the Kingsport City School system, providing in-school care via a dedicated pediatric nurse practitioner and a mobile telemedicine station in school-based clinics. The new "telemedicine" health service provides great convenience and improved access to healthcare, keeping children healthy throughout the school year! Learn more about telemedicine.
Scheduling well-child exams several months in advance will allow you to see your provider of choice. Because we must allow room for same-day sick appointments within each day's schedule, we must limit the number of well-child exams scheduled on any given day.
Pediatric Hospital Team
In the event your child's care involves a hospital stay, you can be confident of the 24 hour, around-the-clock, care they will receive. HMG is one of the few pediatric providers in the Southeast that provides a pediatric hospital team. Learn more.
Your Comfort in Mind
We strive to make your visit with us enjoyable. That's why we are pleased to provide separate well- and sick-child waiting areas. We thank you for our cooperation in helping us foster an environment of concern for those we are privileged to serve.
Same-Day Sick Exams
When your child is ill, we will do our best to accommodate you with an appointment. If we are not available by phone, at any time, you may leave a message for our triage nurse. Your call will be returned in the order in which it was received. Please note that HMG does not recommend dispensing antibiotics without being seen by a provider.
HMG Urgent Care
HMG is pleased to provide multiple HMG Urgent Care locations throughout the region. Learn more about HMG Urgent Care.
If you have a question or concern that must be addressed during the night, please contact the office of your pediatric provider. There, you will be given instructions as to how to contact the provider on-call.
While we are pleased to offer "on call" services, please reserve questions regarding feedings and medication doses for the daytime hours.
As always, in the event of a life-threatening situation, please call 911 immediately and not the provider on call.
Keeping Your Appointments
In trying to provide for the care of children who need same-day sick appointments, we ask that you notify the office if you are unable to keep a scheduled appointment. Please know that 24 hours of advance notice is greatly appreciated. Your advance notification may enable us to provide care for a child who is ill.
Electronic Health Records
Pediatric patients of Holston Medical Group receive the added benefit of electronic health records. Unlike paper charts that are restricted to a single physician office, electronic health records can be accessed from any HMG pediatric location, including our HMG Urgent Care locations. Learn more.
Preparing for the arrival of your little one often includes choosing your pediatric provider team. At HMG Pediatrics, we're pleased to provide you and your growing family a glimpse of our facilities, services and practices by offering private prenatal tours. Please contact the HMG Pediatrics location of your choice and ask to speak with the office manager should you be interested in arranging a tour.
