Meet Us

staff 370Knox Clinic Pediatrics is one of the longest established pediatric practices in the Cape Fear area, dating to 1976, when Dr. Angelina Edralin Knox founded it.

We’ve been around to see countless patients grow from tiny infants to thriving youngsters to happy, healthy adults. Our “children” are everywhere in the Cape Fear region and far beyond. We’re proud to have helped them get a good start in life.

We are proud, too, of our history of service in the community. We strive to offer the best in health care, based on our years of experience as well as our knowledge of the latest research in pediatric medicine.

We are pleased to introduce ourselves, and look forward to seeing you soon!
