LAFOLLETTE, TN. (WLAF)- Wee Care Pediatrics is open for business. The newly established practice, aimed at patients 13 and younger, is a branch of the medical practice owned by Patty Eberharter. Located in downtown LaFollette, inside the LaFollette Urgent Care facility, Wee Care Pediatrics offers comprehensive well child exams, school and sports physicals, developmental, hearing, and vision screenings, sinus and ear infections, sore throat, strep throat, flu and other respiratory illnesses.

After receiving multiple requests to see the children of her patients, Eberharter decided to open the practice. Opening the pediatric practice seemed a natural fit with the other services offered by Eberharter at Renovation Healthcare, a family practice, as well as Jacksboro Urgent Care, Norris-Clinton Urgent Care, and LaFollette Urgent Care and Family Practice.
