A three-story office building in Reynolds Village will be the new home of French Broad Pediatrics Associates, a comprehensive, family-based practice designed to offer a smaller, user-friendly environment for families in Western North Carolina.
Plans are to grow the practice to four to five providers. Activities will include general pediatric care to include behavioral and special needs children and the age of patients will range from newborn to young adults. The practice is being launched by John D. Templeton, MD, FAAP, a board certified pediatrician. Dr. Templeton attended medical school at Tulane University in 1998 and completed his residency at Wake Forest University in 2001. Since finishing his residency he has practiced in Asheville, most recently as a hospitalist at Mission Children’s Hospital. Born in nearby Marion, NC, he is married with two children.
The new offices are scheduled to be open on or before January 1, 2013.
