Verdae Care Team 2

We’re Accepting! We would love to be your primary care providers.

Hunter Moore, MD

  • BS in Biology from Clemson University
  • MD from Marshall University
  • Board Certified by the American Board of Pediatrics

Dr. Moore has a family of four, including his wife, two children (6 years and 4 years old) and their dog, Stuckey, who is 63 (in dog years). When asked why he became a pediatrician, he stated, “I became a physician because I wanted to help people and I love building relationships. In medical school, I quickly realized I relate well with children. I love to interact with kids and I enjoy treating children because they genuinely want to feel better quickly! There is no better feeling than helping a sick child feel better or answering their questions about growing up and changing!”

Dr. Moore and his wife are foster parents, something they’re very passionate about. They currently enjoy respite fostering, but hope to adopt in the near future. When Dr. Moore isn’t busy, he enjoys a number of outdoor activities as well as anything Clemson sports-related. Dr. Moore’s favorite children books include all of Dr. Seuss’ works, as well as To Kill a Mockingbird and The Lord of the Rings which remind him of his childhood.

  • Family Nurse Practitioner, Board Certified by the ANCC

Kendall loves spending time with her family, her church family, her church youth group, and worked in Labor & Delivery for 21 years before coming to Parkside. Some of her hobbies include hiking, snow skiing, horseback riding, photography, and low-country getaways!

One of Kendall’s favorite things is hearing a resounding Christ the Lord is Risen Today sung on Easter Sunday. When it comes to sports, her family is divided between Garnet and Orange, so she cheers for the offense and wins every time!

Coming back to Parkside was one of my favorite parts about our return last summer. I feel like I am home, and I am so grateful (and proud!) to be part of the amazing Parkside family.”
Dr. Powers loves cooking, photography, and writing. She and her family also really enjoy road trips, movie nights, long hikes, and the outdoors. Christmas is her favorite holiday, although Parkside Pajama Day is pretty fantastic too! Dr. Powers’ parents are from India and over the years of visiting family, she’s developed a bit of an obsession with elephants – small, large, wooden, stone, bejeweled – she loves them all!

Dr. Jones is a member of the American Academy of Pediatrics, South Carolina Medical Society and Greenville County Medical Society.

Dr. Jones enjoys working in the yard, gardening, concerts, playing guitar, soccer, and spending time with family and friends. He grew up in West Virginia (wild and wonderful!), was president of his medical school class, and had Dr. Roemmich as his college roommate for three years. In fact, for an epic office prank, Dr. Roemmich had some “tighty whitey” underwear embroidered with the Parkside logo and presented to Dr. Jones during a staff meeting while everyone else was picking up their scrubs, t-shirts, jackets, etc. Payback is coming! His favorite holiday is Thanksgiving because of the opportunity to get family together to share a meal and fellowship. His favorite children’s book is Goodnight Moon.
