Thank you for choosing us to care for your child.
Catawba Pediatrics is diligently working to become a Patient Centered Medical Home so that we can better serve our patients and their families. In an effort to improve patient care, if your child is coming to our practice as a new patient we will need a comprehensive record from any previous caregiver. This includes but is not limited to current medications, visits to specialists, medical history, recent test results, recent well visits, recent hospitalizations and emergency department visits. This information will help provide us with a better understanding of your child's past medical history and enable us to provide you with the best care possible. As your chosen medical home we are here for you 7 days a week and we want to be your first call for all non-emergent visits.

Since 1973, Catawba Pediatric Associates
has been providing quality pediatric care to newborns through adolescents in Hickory, North Carolina and the surrounding areas.
