“I love working with new parents who come to us, trusting us to walk alongside them in this new journey. I also enjoy being able to put the child at ease during times of illness and working with parents to know that they are capable of caring for their children and giving them the skills to do so.”
Dr. Marc Yandle returned to his hometown of Wilmington in 2008 to provide compassionate care for children and their families. Dr. Yandle attended UNC-Chapel Hill as a Morehead Scholar, and in 2004, he earned his medical degree from Wake Forest University School of Medicine. He completed his pediatric training at the Medical College of Georgia in Augusta where he served as chief resident.
“I grew up loving working with children and working in the sciences. This field allows me to combine those two.”
He served as a pediatrician for Wilmington Health Pediatrics from 2008-2015 where he also served as the pediatric division chief from 2013-2015. He was a pediatric hospitalist with Coastal Children’s Services and a general pediatrician with Southeast Pediatrics before opening Dockside Pediatrics.
Dr. Yandle’s interest in pediatrics grew from a deep desire to help and serve others through his God-given talents and abilities. His faith is the cornerstone of his personal, professional and family life; he’s a member of the Christian Medical and Dental Association and serves as an Elder at Heritage OPC. In addition, he is on the board of the local charity Welcome Home Angel.
He married Holly, his college sweetheart, in 2001, and they have six children: Aiden, Eli, Charlotte, Caleb, Emma and Jeremiah. Dr. Yandle enjoys spending time with his family, playing disc golf, and helping homeschool his children.
