GREENCASTLE, Pa. – Dr. Carter Davidson grew up in a western-Pennsylvania town not much different from Greencastle so, when eight years ago he decided to start practicing locally, it took no convincing that he and his family should put down roots in the close-knit community.
“I immediately fell in love with Greencastle,” said Dr. Davidson. “It was a very tight-knit community; everybody seemed to know each other, everybody supports each other, everybody has a vested interest in everybody’s well-being and success.”
An ear, nose and throat surgeon with WellSpan ENT & Hearing Services, Dr. Davidson said he and his wife committed themselves early in their lives here to be active in their new community.
Today, he is involved with coaching youth athletics, participates on different community boards and works with his wife to renovate properties in the downtown to add to the atmosphere there.
He and his wife’s five children, ages 5 to 15, all attend the Greencastle-Antrim School District.
Dr. Davidson said the early September opening of WellSpan Greencastle Health Center means patients have even better access to their care and are being served by local physicians with vested interests in the community.
“The thing I’ve realized working here at the ENT practice is that being in a small town affords some privileges that are great for both the physician and the patient.”
He added that as his children continue to grow and thrive in the area, he gets to see his patients do the same – something he considers one of the most satisfying privileges he experiences as a local medical provider.
“One of the greatest things, especially for the pediatric patient population, is watching the kids grow up,” he said. “You see them at their three- and four-year timeframe, and they’re just little guys that needed their tonsils out. And then, later on, they’re in middle school and you’re going to their band concert.”
