About Children's Faith Pediatrics

Since Dr. Rick Glover established this pediatric practice in 1996, it has grown and changed quite a bit. In 2002 a new name was adopted, Children's Faith Pediatrics. This name reflects a new vision and approach to the practice, recognizing our need for an unquestioning, child-like faith in God. In early 2001 Dr. Glover was involved in a mission project in which an infant from Belize, Central America came to Knoxville at 13 days old for removal of a large, life-threatening tumor. Although she died after the operation at just 19 days old, God used baby Faith to touch many hearts and change many lives. To honor baby Faith and all the other precious children we have cared for, we renamed our practice Children's Faith Pediatrics. 

We hope you will be reminded of your need for child-like faith in God each time we use this name. Our logo represents the fresh new beginning we receive as a blessing each day as the sun rises because of the empty cross at the top of the mountain. Our prayer is that we help your child with their medical needs while encouraging your family to draw closer to the Great Physician, Jesus himself.
