Dr. Charles Roller grew up in North Dakota, enjoying cross country skiing in the winter and hiking or biking in the North Dakota Badlands during the summer. He attended the University of North Dakota for undergraduate and graduate and medical school, then decided to move to warmer climate for residency. Dr. Roller chose St. Louis University where he completed four years combined Internal/Pediatric residency and served an additional year as Pediatric Chief Resident at Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital associated with St. Louis University. He served as a hospitalist for his first two years following residency, but then was offered to take over a Pediatric practice owned by Cardinal Glennon for the next 14 years.
Dr. Roller loved living in St. Louis and spent a lot of time exploring the Lakes of the Ozark Mountains in the region. He lived in the old historic area of the city and rehabbed two old homes, the first built in 1905 and the second in 1895. St. Louis is notorious for its ice storms in the winter, and after so many years, he decided it was time to move to the south. Dr. Roller chose to follow other family members and moved to Phoenix in 2009. After working at a few other practices that he just wasn’t content with, he joined Healing Hearts Pediatrics in December 2016. He is very pleased with the warm, nurturing attitude of Healing Hearts and plans to spend the remainder of his career there. He looks forward to the pleasure of leading your family towards good health and happiness.
