About James C. Anderson, IV, MD

  • Dr. Anderson has transitioned his practice to solely care for patients in need of care for mental and behavioral conditions. His Physician Assistant, Rachael Bentley, and he have their practice on working with patients and families to help patients achieve their maximum emotional, psychological, developmental, and academic potential.

    If you would like to establish care at Austin Regional Clinic, Dr. Anderson highly recommends his ARC Far West Pediatric colleagues:

    Dr. Anderson grew up in St. Louis, MO, where he played ice hockey, and is an avid St. Louis Blues and Cardinals fan. He and his wife lived for 20 years in North Carolina, where he practiced at Cornerstone Health Care, now Wake Forest Baptist Health. Dr. Anderson and his wife have three grown children. In his free time, he can be found with his wife on their boat, visiting family in Horseshoe Bay, being active outside, playing ice hockey, or walking their dog, Kirby, named after the University of Georgia Bulldogs football coach!

During the past 23 years of pediatric practice in North Carolina prior to joining ARC, I sub-specialized in the treatment of pediatric mental health and behavioral medicine, specifically in the area of ADHD, anxiety, depression, and medication management of autism. Each of these children and families have their own unique story and challenges, and I am blessed when I have the opportunity to help them along this journey to overcome their individual challenges and discover their own unique gifts and talents. I believe that active listening and involving both parents and children are the key to a successful relationship with my patients. I look forward to providing enhanced pediatric mental and behavioral health care to my ARC patients.

    Everyone in the pediatrics department was welcoming and kind. I was relieved to meet a provider who seemed to take ADHD seriously and was willing to discuss pharmacology details of the medication options for my son. I am overall happy to find this provider and hope that he will provide more personalized care for my son as they develop a rapport.

    I’m extremely surprised as the ratings for this doctor were really high. While he has a friendly demeanor and lots of advice to offer, it is beyond disappointing to have someone make assumptions and not really get to know you or try to understand what is going on. The questionnaire he looked at held more weight than all the pieces of what we’re seeing and experiencing.
