Unifour Pediatrics
Welcome!  Unifour Pediatrics is a physician-owned primary care practice established to provide quality, comprehensive healthcare services to infants, children, adolescents and college-age youth.

Dr. Millsaps has continuously practiced primary care pediatrics in the Unifour area for the past 33 years and maintains full admitting privileges at both Catawba Valley Medical Center and Frye Regional Medical Center. This current pediatric office, opened in 2005, is designed to provide personal, comprehensive services, promote innovative approaches toward patient care, and allow more time for detailed coordinated management in complex clinical cases. In addition to Dr. Millsaps, we have now added nine more pediatric clinicians, carefully selected, all of whom share the common vision. Dr. Lynn B. Spees joined us in 2007, Dr. Brooke Lawrence Hata joined us in January 2009, and Dr Richard M. Rheinbolt joned us in 2013. Our Certified Pediatric Nurse Practitioners play an integral role in our practice. This represents over 100 years of combined clinical experience in pediatrics. For the nutritional needs of your child, we also have a certified pediatric dietitian/nutritionist, Elizabeth Sheeks LDN. She primarily sees medically fragile infants and toddlers, but also manages our overweight, healthy lifestyles, and metabolic syndrome program. We encourage you to read our Guiding Principles to gain an insight into the importance we place on excellence in service, patient education, and continuity of medical care.
