About TLC

Teens, Little Ones Children (TLC) Pediatrics, LLC was established in 2008, but its roots extend much further. This premier facility is located in southwest Atlanta and was first conceived, owned and operated by Dr. William H. Bland, in the late 1960s. It has been a cornerstone of excellence in pediatric medicine ever since.

Over time, the practice facility changed hands, but has maintained its excellence. The practice is currently led by the owner and CEO of TLC Pediatrics, LLC: Lester A. Freeman, MD—a board-certified pediatrician and graduate of Rutgers (UMDNJ) Medical School. Dr. Freeman cares for his children from the moment they are born through age 21. He typically spends his days seeing sick patients and performs well-child exams, as well as sports physicals. Additionally, he spends a great deal of time educating his staff, nurse practitioner and especially, his patient and their families about their particular diagnoses, focusing mainly on prevention, not just treatment.

“When a child comes to my office, one of my goals is to make the experience as relaxing and fun as a doctor’s office can be, especially if vaccines are to be administered. So, even when sick, I want my patients to be confident and hopeful when they enter and exit my office.”
