Thank you for your interest in Liberty Mountain Pediatrics! I've been a pediatrician since 1986, and I still wake up every day excited about going to work. There is nothing more satisfying to me than building lasting relationships with families while providing their children with the best medical care. Whether your child is in need of well child check ups, sick child care, anticipatory guidance, behavior and mental guidance, or all the above, it will be our privilege to serve you!

Dr. Byars is a board certified pediatrician and a fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics. She attended medical school at UAB and completed her residency in pediatrics at Vanderbilt.

Dr. Whitney Ford, DNP, CPNP

I am so excited to be a part of the Liberty Mountain Pediatrics team. I know in many ways your pediatrician becomes like part of your family, therefore, I am honored for the chance to become a part of yours. I love getting to know my patients and watching them grow.

My background is in neonatal intensive care, early childhood development, and pediatric primary and urgent care. After training under Dr. Byars, I now have the great privilege of serving you alongside her.

I am delighted to be joining the family at Liberty Mountain Pediatrics.  I have always had a deep and genuine love for children.  This passion only continues to grow with each patient interaction. I chose to practice pediatrics because I found that children simply brighten my day.  From the genius things they say and do to the endless love they give; every child has my heart.  Through their little hearts, I have found my purpose.  I am blessed to be a mom of two boys as well, so it allows me to see the perspective of a parent.  As a parent, you need to be heard and most importantly, heard by someone that you trust!  It is my honor to serve each child and their family.

Dr. Cope is board-certified in pediatrics by the American Board of Pediatrics and a Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics.  She attended medical school at the Lincoln Memorial University-DeBusk College of Osteopathic Medicine in Harrogate, Tennessee and completed her residency in pediatrics at the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson, Mississippi.  Dr. Cope is originally from Gatlinburg, Tennessee.  She is married to her husband, Kevin, an emergency medicine physician, and the mom of two wonderful boys, Andrew and Kaden, ages 5 and 2.

Google Review

"27 years of Dr. Byars."

"I've been using Dr. Byars for 27 years. She began seeing my daughter in the hospital at birth. Both of my children love going to see her. In fact, my daughter cried when she had to start seeing a new doctor when she turned eighteen! We travel an hour for her, but she and the rest of her staff are worth the time and gas."
