Biography

The opportunity to get to know patients over time is a large part of why Kristin Dickson, MD, chose pediatrics. "Pediatrics allows me to not only work with children," Dr. Dickson said, "but it also gives me an opportunity to stay involved with these young patients as they grow to adolescence. Because of those connections, I find pediatrics to be the most rewarding and fulfilling field in medicine."

Before joining the Kernersville office of Novant Health Forsyth Pediatrics, Dr. Dickson served patients exclusively at the Novant Health Forsyth Pediatrics' after-hours location. While she still sees both sick and injured patients in her current role, she is happy to also provide preventive care to help children stay well. "I enjoy everything from encouraging children to stay active to helping families learn how to overcome health concerns such as obesity," she said. 'Every child deserves remarkable preventive care to remain as healthy as possible.

"Everyone at Novant Health Forsyth Pediatrics is just as committed to wellness for our children as I am," Dr. Dickson continued. "That commitment, along with our awesome patients, is what makes me so happy to be here every day."
