Thomas Bodenstine, M.D., FAAP


Dr. Bodenstine, “Dr. Bo,” is one of six children born into a very Catholic family in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and grew us as the third of six children in a very devout Catholic family..   His father's career path led to a family move to Chattanooga, TN, when Dr. Bo was a young teenager and he has remained blow the Mason-Dixon Line every since.  He graduated from the University of Tennessee, Chattanooga with a BA Degree in Biology and received his MD from the Eastern Virginian School of Medicine in Norfolk, VA.   He completed his Internship and Residence in Pediatrics at The Children's Hospital of the King's Daughter's (Norfolk) and joined Oberlin Road Pediatrics in 2000.

Dr. Bodenstine has previously served as Chairman of the Pediatric Executive Committee at Duke-Raleigh Hospital,  and on the Pediatrics Executive Committee at  UNC-Rex Hospital.    He has served as the Chairman of the Department of Pediatrics at WakeMed, and previously served for 12 years as the lead physician at Oberlin Road Pediatrics.

Dr. Bodenstine was smart enough to marry his wife of over 40 years not too long after meeting her...a Raleigh native (!), "Cissy" Skidmore Bodenstine; together they have raised three kind and loving children.  They are blessed that all three children and their families, including 7 grandchildren, live in the immediate area and share lots of time together.
