If you have kids, you know how important it is to have a qualified pediatrician, and if you live in the Knoxville area, you cannot go past Powell Pediatrics. Dr. Morris and is staff are committed to building long lasting relationships with every pat
ient and family that walks through the door.
Dr. Morris has patients that have been with him from the beginning, giving babies their first inoculations, making sure boys and girls got through the toddler years, adolescence, and into the teen years. Some of his patients now have children of their own who are entrusting the same care to Powell Pediatrics that their parents did.
Pediatricians focus on the social, emotional, and physical health of infants, toddlers, adolescents, tweens, and teens. Dr. Morris focuses on prevention, and detection of developmental, social, behavioral, and physical problems that can affect children of all ages. The staff at Powell Pediatrics will diagnose and treat injuries, and infections, as well as dysfunction, and organic diseases. They strive to reduce child and infant mortality by teaching the parents how to incorporate healthy living into their daily lives.
Dr. Morris understands that early detection of behavioral and developmental problems can help children overcome ADD, ODD and ADHD. Dr. Morris can also identify autism, which usually occurs before the age of three. Although there is no cure, early detection and treatment can make a huge difference in the lives of the children and their families. If you suspect that your child may be suffering from an academic or behavioral problem, download the behavior assessment form, fill it out, and make an appointment for a consultation.
Pediatricians can treat major illnesses such as kidney disease, but the majority of the patients that they see every day are dealing with infections, and minor injuries, such as sprains, bruises, breaks and cuts, colds, fever, earaches, and other minor physical issues. Dr. Morris is no exception, and administers immunizations for newborns and toddlers, and also acts as a councilor of sorts, advising parents on all aspects of health care.
Since the year 2000, Dr. Morris and his friendly staff have been treating infants, toddlers, adolescents, teens and tweens. So if you are looking for a pediatrician that you can trust, make an appointment with Powell Pediatrics today. Most major insurances are accepted, and there is nothing more important than the health of your family.
