Regular Vaccines Prevent Deadly Disease

Powell Pediatrics understands the importance of vaccines, especially for babies. If you have a newborn and have not been able to see a pediatrician, call and schedule an appointment with Dr. Carl Timothy Morris. Your Knoxville pediatrician cannot stress the importance of that first appointment as it sets the stage for your child’s health for the rest of his or her life.
