A note from Dr. Appel
Cross Creek Pediatrics is now Brave Care
It has been an honor to care for your children (and many of you when you were children) for the past 26 years, but I have decided to retire and spend more time with my husband and our grandchildren.
I feel so lucky to have found Brave Care to take over our Cross Creek Pediatrics clinic, as they care as much as I do about giving you and your kids the best healthcare experience possible. I’m impressed by what they’re building and I’m excited to see their modern, thoughtful and high quality care coming to our community.
Brave Care provides the most complete pediatric care for parents by delivering excellent primary care, as well as urgent care, 12 hours a day, 7 days a week. Additionally, their pediatric nurses answer the phones 24 hours a day. I feel very happy about leaving you in such good hands.
While Brave Care is new to Fayetteville and North Carolina, their mission is to help every child reach their potential—and that means supporting families in every town across our great nation. They’re excited about serving our community and becoming a part of it in the days ahead.

The most complete care option for your kids
With Brave Care you get the accessibility of a general pediatric group combined with the high-touch personal care you’d get from a boutique or concierge clinic. We’re big enough to help and small enough to care.
We get to know your child better.
Our digital tools and world-class team are programmed to pay attention to the details, because it’s the small stuff that matters.
Schedule visits without the hassle.
You’ll find a friendly, familiar face at every interaction with us whether you schedule a month before or drop in same-day.
Personalized care & attention.
More personalized care and a less hectic environment means more time spent with your family. We’re available 7 days a week until 9pm because your kid’s care is too important to rush.

Seriously amazing! They are so good with kids and even care about the parents who come in. We have been many times from fever, ear infections, flu shot. It’s great to have a place nearby that you can walk-in in a moments notice to ease your mom nerves or get care for your children! xoxoLauren N., Brave Care Parent
“The office is almost relaxing”
Beyond easy to make an appointment and to be seen when you want to. The office is almost relaxing, not medical/hospital feeling at all. Staff is wonderful as well!Jennifer N., Brave Care Parent
“Such great care I quit my job and joined”
My 4yo daughter had a bad cut on her face and needed stitches. Despite both of us being a bit scared and in pain… we got such great care I quit my job and joined as the CEO to make sure every kid/parent has the chance to experience what an amazing care experience should be like.Darius M., Brave Care Parent & CEO
