"Our family is very grateful for Bristol Pediatrics. The care we receive is top quality and the staff is always very professional and knowledgeable. I love the fact they are open on Saturday and Sunday and have utilized these hours many times over the years. It is great to know our doctor cares about the well-being of our children and makes every effort to be available for us. I never expected a pediatrician to be on call 24 hours a day but Dr. Makres certainly is that exception. My child has had breathing issues during the night and Dr. Makres returned our call at 4 am. Thank you Bristol Pediatrics for going above the call of duty!"

"I wanted to participate with a statement of the care that Dr. Makres has given Adam: Anytime that Adam needs to be seen, Dr. Makres always fits him in with or without an appointment. He always takes his time during examinations to answer any questions or concerns you may have regarding your child. I would trust no other pediatrician with my son other than Dr. Makres."
Thank you, Melissa Smith
There is a lot to be said about a group of people that will come in on Saturday and Sunday to care for your child. Dr. Makres and his staff have been nothing but professional, flexible, and compassionate. No question has been unanswered even in the middle of the night. We appreciate everything they do! Brody actually looks forward to going to the doctor and of course, he loves those lollipops!
We just wanted to take a moment to thank Dr. Makres for being such a wonderful doctor. When our baby was born 7 weeks early we were told to pick a pediatrician before the delivery. We had no clue about any of the doctors in the Bristol area, so we asked the nurses with us at the hospital. All of them recommended Dr. Makres. He was there when Brady was born and called to check on him several times when they transferred him to the Holston Valley NICU. Brady is now a healthy, happy 21 month old! At every appointment we have been impressed with Dr. Makres. He always takes the time to answer any questions we have and to make our baby feel at ease with the exam. We have called "after hours" a few times and Dr. Makres has always called us back, himself, with the answer to our questions. We are thankful to have a doctor that cares so much about his patients and their needs. Thank you, Dr. Makres, for a job well done and may God bless you and your family!
