Our Providers

Janice S. Algea, MD

Doctor Janice grew up as a missionary kid in Asunción, Paraguay, South America. Her father, Dr. William Skinner, was a pediatrician and church planter to the Paraguayans and various local indigenous peoples. He founded the Baptist Hospital (Centro Médico Bautista) and Nursing School in Asunción. She left her home in South America to attend Belmont College in Nashville, TN. While a student there, she was inducted into the Epsilon Honor Society and served as president of the Women’s Self-Governing Association.  She graduated with a Bachelor of Science Degree and was honored with the Walter Hale Award for Best All-Round Student. 

She was accepted to the University of Tennessee College of Medicine, where she earned her Doctor of Medicine degree. This was followed by a Pediatric internship and residency at LeBonheur Children’s Hospital. 

Afterward, she worked for Pediatrics Associates and the Memphis Shelby County Health Department. She later joined her husband, Dr. Bill, in providing medical care in Millington, then an underserved community. They turned a small duplex home at the corner of Navy Road and Harold Street into a medical clinic. On one side of the duplex, Dr. Janice saw the children, and on the other side, Dr. Bill saw the adults. Later, they incorporated into Peabody Healthcare Group but when the company closed, Dr. Janice continued to serve her patients by opening and operating Primary Care Pediatrics. The practice has continued to grow since it was established in June 2000.

Dr. Janice is board-certified by the American Board of Pediatrics and is an Associate Clinical Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Tennessee Health Sciences Center. She’s won the “Pediatrician of the Year” Reader's Choice Award by the Millington Star on multiple occasions.

She’s blessed to have three sons, David, Roy, and Christopher. She also delights in having 5 grandsons and 2 granddaughters.

Dr. Janice is also active in serving her church and community. She teaches Awanas at Crossspointe Baptist Church and serves as Auxiliary President of Gideon’s International Millington Camp. In her free time, she enjoys flower gardening, fishing, making homegrown blueberry jam, and feeding and watching hummingbirds. 

During the Pandemic, she helped the practice move locations to its current site and limited her clinic to one day a week, but she is still very active in the day-to-day operations of the practice.
