About Us


Carolina Pediatric Associates is a family-owned business dedicated to serving the people of Upstate South Carolina.

Carolina Pediatric Associates was started by Dr. Daren Carling in Blacksburg, SC in 2003. After only a year of seeing patients, Carolina Pediatric Associates reached a level of productivity that prompted Dr. Carling to open a second office in Gaffney, SC.

As a practice, we at Carolina Pediatric Associates are so excited to help keep your children healthy!

We strive to work with our patients’ needs to make sure that each child is treated, even when there is a financial hardship. This notice serves as a reminder that if you have a financial hardship related to payment for medical services you have the option of asking our staff for a hardship evaluation packet. After completing this form and showing appropriate documentation, you may qualify for a sliding fee option.
