Providing quality care for your children for more than 65 years
Our practice is the first in the greater Charlotte area with two board-certified pediatricians who are classically trained in the best of traditional medicine and have additional training in functional and integrative medicine. We believe that each patient is unique. We understand the need to listen and decide on the best of all possible therapies for you.
Our goal is to provide you with this modern practice model because of a desire to make medicine more personalized. We offer comprehensive primary care including: asthma and allergy therapy, behavioral health, cutting edge nutrition counseling, stress reduction and evidence based use of modern therapies.

Dr. Danny Benjamin, joins me today to discuss COVID19 in children, vaccines and the critical research that his team performed regarding back to school in North Carolina. He is the Kiser Arena Distinguished Professor of Pediatrics at Duke University and the Principle Investigator of the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development Pediatric Trials Network. His group performed two large trials of children going back to school in 2020 effectively proving that children being in school face to face was and is safe. We discuss the safety of the mRNA vaccines in the 12 year old and older age group. We dive deep into the risks and fallout from natural COVID infections as well as weigh the scales of vaccination versus natural disease in older children. He is a wealth of knowledge and I am grateful for his time.
I hope that you will enjoy my conversation with Dr. Danny Benjamin.
