I'm wondering the same thing. We moved here and I used Medical Care a couple of times then changed to ETSU Peds. So far they have been really good...if you get passed whoever the rude person is that answers phones! So far the few times we have been there, the nurses and doctors have been great. I'm looking for a doctor for my teen so I'm curious to hear of other places also ......

Whatever you do, do NOT go to Dr. Higgenbottom in Elizabethton/JC.

Other Dr's we saw there listened to us, figured out what was going on and treated our kids.

Dr. Higgenbottom was the only one available several times our girls were sick and every time she would cut us off, dismiss whatever we thought it was and tell us to take something OTC and check back in two weeks. On those occasions my daughters got worse, and ended up in the ER. Another lady I work with had the same thing happen with her daughter. ER

I have 4 kids. I've seen it all and am anything but over-reactive. She's a bad DR. Period.

Yeah you're right. She is that way off the job also. I say steer a wide berth around her.

First Choice Pediatrics in JC has a great group of doctors. Our kids have gone there for years.

The Combs brothers at Gray Primary Care. They are terrific!
