Dr. Charles Terry

Readers' Pick


Second Place: Dr. Mark Shreve

Third Place: Dr. Lora Christian

Dr. Charles V. Terry figures he made the right choice in medical school. His father, also a doctor, practiced internal medicine in Portsmouth, but Terry fondly recalled the familylike care of his pediatrician growing up. So he chose kids. "I absolutely love it. I get up every day seeing kids and going to the hospital," says Terry, who's been practicing medicine since 1986. Terry joined his current practice, Drs. Overton, Wiley, Kirchmier, Terry & Rowe P.C. in 1987. Today the pediatric office has three locations, and Terry serves as president. As a pediatrician, you know you're successful when you have patients that keep coming back — even when they've outgrown the kid stuff. "We have some of that, actually," Terry says. "We've been trying to get them to go to an adult doctor."
