CHKD Medical Group Welcomes New Pediatricians

Elizabeth Earley: or (757) 668-9049

HAMPTON ROADS, Va. – The pediatricians of CHKD Medical Group are pleased to welcome Dr. Andria Wallen and Dr. Charisse Carter to practices in Chesapeake and Norfolk.

Dr. Wallen returns to her home city and the practice she went to as a child, Chesapeake Pediatrics, an experience that inspired her to become a pediatrician. She attended Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine in Blacksburg, Va., and completed her residency at CHKD, serving as chief resident. 

Dr. Carter also received her medical degree at Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine. She did her pediatric residency at Virginia Commonwealth University School of Medicine in Richmond. Dr. Carter, who will be practicing at Norfolk Pediatrics, enjoys taking care of children of all ages, but especially loves seeing newborn patients develop. She hopes to guide each of her patients through adolescence as they become responsible for their own health.

 Join us in welcoming Dr. Wallen and Dr. Carter to CHKD Medical Group.
