(Savannah pediatricians) New pediatrician @ Memorial Health’s Children Care

April 10th, 2019

Savannah pediatricians Memorial Health Andrew Gunter

Dr. Andrew W. Gunter, a board-certified pediatrician, has joined the staff of Memorial Health University Physicians | Children’s Care. Previously, he was in private practice in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Gunter earned his medical degree from the Medical University of South Carolina and his undergraduate degree from Clemson University. He completed his pediatric residency at Georgetown University Hospital in Washington, DC, where he was chief resident.

Gunter’s philosophy of care is simple. “I care for my patients the way I’d want my children treated,” he said. “If you do that, you can’t go wrong.

“I treat my patients with the same goals in mind that most parents have for their own children. You want them to trust you and your words, you want them to know you care for them, and you want to do your best to meet their needs by listening and allaying their fears with comforting words,” he added.

Gunter and his wife are the parents of two teenagers – a son and a daughter.

Children’s Care is part of Memorial Health’s 34-practice network of primary and specialty care physicians in southeast Georgia and southern South Carolina.
