Meet Dr. Kelly Anderson, DO, OB/GYN

Dr. Kelly Anderson, DO, OB/GYN joined Myrtue's team in September of 2020. She served as Chief Resident Physician at McLaren Macomb Hospital in Mount Clemens, Michigan before coming to Harlan.

Dr. Anderson received her medical degree from Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine - Carolinas Campus. "I really enjoy the emotions involved in being an obstetrician. Delivering babies creates an atmosphere of excitement and anticipation. It's fun to be there, in the moment, as families experience the joy of welcoming a new member to their family," stated Dr. Anderson.

Dr. Anderson is extensively trained in women's health and prevention including annual exams, family planning, breast health, and treatments for menopause. "I want my patients to feel comfortable talking to me about any chronic, troublesome symptoms or potentially embarrassing topics," explained Dr. Anderson. "I am passionate about educating my patients on healthy lifestyles and promoting positive, life-long healthy changes. It is important for my patients to know I am here for a lifetime of care and not just the babies."

Dr. Anderson is originally from a small town outside of Charlotte, North Carolina and loved growing up in the Carolinas and in a small town. She met her husband, Michael, while in college and they welcomed their first child in September 2019. They are currently expecting their second child in the fall of 2021. In her spare time she enjoys reading and cooking and she loves being in the outdoors doing many various activities such as kayaking and climbing.

Dr. Anderson sees OB and gynecological patients in our beautiful outpatient center, performs OB/GYN surgeries two days per week, and delivers babies at Myrtue Medical Birthing Center. She is dedicated to being a life long partner of women’s health needs.

How Can an OB/GYN Help?

OB/Gynecology is the branch of medicine dealing with healthcare for women, especially the diagnosis and treatment of disorders affecting the female reproductive organs.

Obstetric medicine is focused on pregnancy, labor, and delivery, while gynecology concentrates on female reproductive organs. OB/GYNs are the preferred physician for women who plan on having children.
