Pediatric Associates of Franklin has been a steadfast provider of pediatric care in our community since 1977. Our mission is clear: to foster enduring connections with families, guiding them through every phase of their child’s health journey with empathy and expertise. From routine check-ups to specialized treatments, we are dedicated to delivering comprehensive healthcare that supports both physical and emotional well-being.

We proudly recognize three exceptional providers—Dr. Thomas (Tim) Carr, Dr. John Chambers, and Dr. Molly Hood—all honored as 2024 Top Doctors.

As President and Managing Partner, Dr. Carr is deeply entrenched in community healthcare, volunteering on numerous hospital boards and medical committees. His true passion, however, is caring for and creating lasting relationships with his patients and their families.

Dr. Chambers is a seasoned expert in pediatric care who served as Chief of Pediatrics at Williamson Medical Center. Whether it is a giggling toddler or a thoughtful adolescent, connecting with kids is a privilege that fills his day with purpose.

Dr. Hood’s passion for advocacy extends beyond the clinic walls. Her involvement with Gigi’s Playhouse, her role as president of the Cumberland Pediatric Foundation, and her recognition as the Down Syndrome Association of Middle Tennessee’s Physician of the Year exemplify her dedication.

PAF is also home to other outstanding board-certified physicians and nurse practitioners, including Dr. Allison Couden, Dr. Allen Peabody, Dr. Emily Hawkinson, Jill Rembinski NP, and Morgan Fisher NP.
