First Pediatric Practice in Fayetteville Open Seven Days Per Week

October 18, 2017 – Fayetteville, NC – Rainbow Pediatrics, a four-location pediatric group, announced today that their flagship location in Fayetteville, NC is now open seven days per week. As Fayetteville’s first and only pediatric group open seven days per week, it offers patients more comprehensive pediatric services than a typical walk-in urgent care or emergency room.

Established in 2005, Rainbow Pediatrics is the area’s largest pediatric group with 13 providers and locations in Fayetteville, Hope Mills, Raeford and Dunn, NC.

“Treating your children as our children,” has been a mantra at Rainbow Pediatrics for years. Seeing a strong need to provide better access to families seeking pediatric services all days of the week, Taner Esensoy, MD, Founder and Pediatrician at Rainbow Pediatrics developed a solution.

“We are thrilled to be able to provide daily access to patients needing pediatric care,” said Esensoy.

Children and their parents build relationships over time with the pediatric providers who care for them. Being able to see familiar faces during a stressful time makes the experience less scary for all involved.

“Kids get sick every day of the week, and it is important that the people who normally care for them as patients, see them, regardless if it is Wednesday or Sunday,” Esensoy added.

It takes a team of committed people who are willing to work when others are at home with their families. “We are delighted to have a team that holds the care of their patients in such high regard,” said Felicia Coats, Administrator of Rainbow Pediatrics.

Fayetteville residents aren’t the only people who will benefit from seven days a week access to pediatric care. Any Rainbow Pediatrics patient, regardless of location, can visit the Fayetteville office as a walk-in, sick patient. “Our electronic medical record system allows each location to have direct access to the medical history of all patients, which provides a seamless process for their care,” added Coats.

Rainbow Pediatrics of Fayetteville is now open for established, walk-in sick patients on Saturdays from 9:30am – 11:30 am and on Sundays from 1:00 pm – 3:30 pm. Also, this location now offers extended hours on Fridays for established patient appointments until 4:00 pm.

Rainbow Pediatrics is consistently ranked the best pediatric practice in Fayetteville. Headed by Taner Esensoy, MD, the practice was founded in Fayetteville, NC in 2005. Rainbow Pediatrics accepts most insurance plans including Medicaid and cares for children from birth through age 18. Offering a wide variety of pediatric services, the team at Rainbow Pediatrics is committed to providing pediatric excellence.
