(That would be "area" in the above title)...whoops!

Hi...my family and I will be moving to Charlotte witin the next week and a half. We have sooo many appointments that need to be made, but do not know a soul in the area. Specifically in close proximity to the
Providence CC area, would anyone be willing to give me any names for doctors that would come highly recommended?

1)Pediatric Orthodontist
2)Pediatricians
3)General Practitioner
4)OB/GYN
5)Family Dentist

Thanks in advance for any responses!

I second Dr. Samarel or his colleagues at Kids First Pediatrics in the fountains. We use Dr. Bird who is a pediatric dentist/ orthodontist further down Ardrey Kell (at Marvin Rd.)

Welcome to Charlotte! Here are our family's picks and very pleased since my wife and I are both in health care - she is an ICU RN and I am an optometrist.

1) Our kids love going to the dentist because they go to these guys and see Dr. Savage:Laxer, Long and Savage | Charlotte NC | Pediatric Dentist and Orthodontist. I know Dr. Laxer as well and she is great.
2) We see Catalina Brockman, MD at Meridian Medical Group on Providence. Our kids love her!Meridian Medical Group Family: Brockman Catalina MD - Google Maps
3. Ballantyne Medical Group is fabulous. Either Dr Hanrahan or McDonald. Medical Providers
4. Bradford Clinic on Community House off 485 and Johnston Road - 10 min from your house. Dr Bhojwani is excellent. My wife sees him and he came recommended highly from a patient of mine who works there and is a family friend as well. Welcome to the Bradford Clinic Online (http://www.bradfordclinic.com/index.shtml - broken link)
5. Rob Harrell, DDS - Off Rea Road and 485 and across from Laxer Long and Savage. Great for adults! Charlotte Dentist & Charlotte Cosmetic Dentist | Adult Dentistry of Ballantyne

And of course, you might want to see an eye doctor while you are here

Good luck with the move!

I'm kind of crunchy, here are my thoughts:

My whole family goes to Carolina Family Healthcare for general needs.

I do NOT like Bradford Clinic for OB care. They are very interventionist.

Welcome to Charlotte!

Family Doctor/GP:

You CANNOT find better doctors than Carmel Family Physicians. I have seen Dr. Marc Lewin for the past 14 years, my 7 year old son has seen him since 5 days and my new baby will see him. If you want a female doctor - Dr. Kaiser is awesome as well. They are open 7 days a week, and on week-days they have "urgent care" hours until 8 pm. It's also nice to have your whole family in the same place for medical care - they treat from pediatrics to geriatrics.

Orthodontist:

Laxer, Long and Savage are virtually the only people to use for pediatric dentistry or orthodontics. They are INCREDIBLE and best of all, the kids love them!

OB/GYN:

Rankin Women's Center is incredible. I use the Ballantyne Office. I used Charlotte OB/GYN with my first son and they are great as well, but I really like the staff at Rankin Women's Center.

Good luck with your move here...your will LOVE Charlotte!
