At Pediatric Associates–Greer, we have been committed to improving the health of Greer area children for over 50 years. In the late 1960’s, Dr. Joe Smith founded the very first pediatric office in Greer, the Greer Pediatric Clinic. Shortly after, he was joined by Dr. Herbert Smyre and a few years later Dr. James Key also joined the practice.
In 2009, the Greer Pediatric Clinic joined Children’s Hospital, and we changed our name to Pediatric Associates–Greer. This has allowed us to work even closer with the local pediatric subspecialists so we can provide more complete and integrated care for the children in the Greer area, including the highest level of pediatric inpatient care in the Upstate.
Many things have changed in 50 years including our name, but our dedication to Greer area children has remained steadfast. We are happy that many of our former patients bring their children and their grandchildren to our office.
At Pediatric Associates–Greer, each of our providers is board certified and follows treatment guidelines established by the American Academy of Pediatrics. We offer comprehensive care to children and adolescents from birth through high school graduation. We make it a priority to provide quality, compassionate, convenient care for our patients and are open 6 days a week with same-day sick appointments. Our goal is to partner with you to achieve optimum health for your child.
Pediatric Associates–Greer participates in the QTIP program. According to the South Carolina Department of Health and Human Services, “the Quality through Technology and Innovation in Pediatrics (QTIP) program works to improve health care for children in South Carolina by working on quality measures and incorporating mental health into a medical home. Started in 2010 under a CHIPRA federal grant, this program brings practices together to collaborate on specific measures and foster quality improvement projects at each practice site.”
We are proud to partner with Reach Out and Read by making age-appropriate books available to patients at their well-child visits, from birth to age 5. We encourage families to take the books home and read aloud together.
Our goal is to stimulate early language and brain development and give young children a foundation for success.
The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) Recognition Programs assess whether clinicians and practices support the delivery of high-quality care and are built on evidence-based, nationally recognized clinical standards of care.
