Carter D. Wray M.D.

    • Associate Professor of Pediatrics, Division of Neurology School of Medicine

Dr. Carter Wray was born in St. Louis, MO, and has lived in many places including Rochester, NY, central New Jersey, New Hampshire and Vermont before moving to Georgia to teach high school in Atlanta. He has spent summers teaching kayaking and rafting in Utah and Wyoming.

Dr. Wray specializes in caring for children with brain and nerve problems, especially those with medically refractory epilepsy, or seizures that do not stop despite children being on anti-epileptic medications. He has advanced training in interpreting EEGs (brain wave tracings), and working children up for possible epilepsy surgery. For children whose seizures do not stop despite being on anti-epileptics, but who are not surgical candidates, he works with our dietitian Karrie Stuhlsatz to offer the ketogenic diet, modified Atkins diet, and low glycemic index diets. Dr. Wray enjoys working with kids because they have such an amazing ability to overcome adversity.

In his spare time, Dr. Wray is an avid whitewater kayaker, biker, and ultimate frisbee player. He also enjoys spending time with his wife and son.
