Mom-Approved Doctors

Having a good doctor when you need one is important, especially when it comes to kids. From doctors to dentists to chiropractors and therapists, we asked local parents to tell us about their favorite Charlotte-area practitioners that have earned their trust and respect. Charlotte Parent readers nominated the doctors listed here, some for multiple years! Only recommended doctors in good standing are included. 

Click on each doctor's name to view nomination years and comments from local parents on why these doctors stand out.

Description:

Nominated:

"As a mother, I completely understand the frustration in finding a great pediatrician. You want someone who will be patient and gentle with your children but also answer questions in a genuine and knowledgeable way. Dr. Osterberg is just that! She always has the best interest of her patients at heart. She treats every child as if they are her own and I completely trust her advice and recommendations. She goes the extra mile to make every little one feel comfortable by doing things like giving books after milestone visits and dressing up as Doc McStuffins for Halloween. If you ask a question, she explains it in a way that is easy to understand and does not make you feel rushed. She is great and she helps my children not feel cranky about going to the doctors. Her practice is located right outside of Charlotte in Rock Hill. It is a huge building right off of I-77. It is a CMC office and they have several locations in Fort Mill and in Charlotte as well. One of their locations is even open on the weekends in case you need a quick visit or need care outside of business hours." – Jessica Burney, Fort Mill (2015)
