Meet Dr. Nic Peters
Dr. Peters (or “Dr. Nic” as his younger patients call him) practices Integrative and Functional Medicine with a focus on health issues aﬀecting children and young adults. He enjoys partnering with his patients and their families to determine underlying sources of dis-ease, then integratively treating by creating an individualized program that takes account of the whole person – body, mind, and spirit. He prescribes safe and eﬀective, evidence-based treatments and dietary changes to seek optimum health for his patients.
Dr. Peters pursued his love of travel and attended medical school at St. George’s University in Grenada, West Indies. There he encountered a diverse student body and learned from professors from around the world. His clinical studies took him to Miami, Detroit, Indianapolis, Honduras, and the United Kingdom, where he saw the limits of what Western Medicine has to oﬀer. Frustrated by the number of patients he saw with chronic illness from poor nutrition and lack of exercise, as well the little time physicians were able to spend with patients, he sought ways to restore health rather than just manage diseases through prescriptions.
In 2010 he completed the Integrated Pediatric Residency Training Program of the Wright State University School of Medicine, Dayton Children’s Hospital, and Wright-Patterson Air Force Base Medical Center, followed by the Clinical Fellowship Program in Pediatric Hematology-Oncology at Case Western Reserve University, University Hospitals Case Medical Center, and Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital in 2013. He is board-certiﬁed in General Pediatrics and board-eligible in Pediatric Hematology/ Oncology.
