About James C. Anderson, IV, MD

  • 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.

    The front staff and MA were very professional and helpful. Dr. Anderson was great with explaining medications and how they worked to my son. Dr. Anderson is awesome!

    We had a terrific visit with Dr. Anderson. He’s doing the important work of specializing in the pediatric mental health and ADHD space and we are so grateful.

    Dr Anderson is phenomenal. A friend of mine was referred by her friend. My friend referred me. I recently referred a friend. ADHD in kids might not be openly discussed bc of the stigma of meds. But for all those who are open, finding Dr Anderson has saved our families.
