Cabarrus Family Medicine-Concord
Top Doctors and staff. I have been seeing Dr Carla Jones since 2001 and have been pleased with how she is patient and through. Sometimes I have to wait but the quality of care I get is worth it. Top notch Doctor. I would like to also praise Dr Kara Gallagher I had to go to the ER last month 4/2013 and she was the Dr on call for cabarrus family medicine at northeast cmc. She was very informative and really listened to my concerns. She checked up on me the next day in the hospital and took the time to explain everything to me and did it in a way that I understood it and put me at ease. I highly recommend either one of these Doctors if you are looking for quality medical care from someone who shows they have a passion for what they do.

Dr. Tara L Chronister, MD
Dr. Chronister was on top of some potential problems that no other physician had picked up on. Her attention to detail may very well have saved me from another heart attack. She was very knowledgeable, very pleasant, and, no doubt, very thorough. I highly recommend her!!

Tips & Advices
A child should see his or her pediatrician frequently during the first few years. Once the child reaches age 3, parents should schedule a doctor's visit at least once per year. Before that, however, the American Academy of Pediatrics suggests parents arrange visits according to the following schedule:
  • 2 to 5 days old
  • 1 month old
  • 4 months old
  • 6 months old
  • 9 months old
  • 12 months old
  • 15 months old
  • 24 months old (2 years)
  • 30 months old (2.5 years)
No, parents should call 911, an emergency physician, or a pediatric emergency physician if a child suffers an acute illness or injuries. Doctors in these fields are more qualified than pediatricians to handle emergency situations.
A well-visit is a routine visit with a pediatrician to track a child's development, discuss medical or emotional concerns, and receive immunizations and medical advice.
Yes, pediatricians provide immunizations for infants and children up through 21 years.
No, pediatricians do not have to be board certified.They're only required to have a state license. However, certification indicates a dedication to studying pediatrics beyond the requirements.
