Dr. Sperry originally came to Charleston in 1978 for residency. After three years in the Public Health Service, he returned when Dr. Quattlebaum asked him to join him on the faculty at MUSC. While at the university, Dr. Sperry orchestrated the training of many of the area’s pediatricians before starting Charleston Pediatrics in 1990. Dr. Sperry enjoys traveling, spending time with his four grown children, and supporting his wife’s career in art.

My Thoughts On Medical Care…

My many years of teaching future pediatricians about the importance of behavior in all areas of pediatrics strongly influences my approach. As we successfully vaccinate away many of the illness we spent time treating in the past, I’m glad to be able place my focus on helping our kids stay healthy not only physically, but also behaviorally and emotionally as we prepare them to face the stresses of a rapidly changing world.
