In the 2020 Annual report of the American Board of Pediatrics, Dr. Steve Smith and Dr. Brandon Taylor were recognized for the innovation to help patients: "Thrive Pediatrics also recognized the need to adapt to ease fears. 'Our office is on the second floor, says Steve Smith, MD. Sick patients and well patients used the same small elevator, and the medical team thought disinfecting the office was not enough. We saw a need to keep the germs downstairs'. Soon, Dr. Smith and Dr. Taylor set up a full clinic in a tent in their parking lots to see and treat sick patients, leaving the second-floor office open for well child visits. Children loved the idea and soon dubbed them the 'camping Doctors'."
