Obstetrics and Gynecology is the branch of medicine dealing with healthcare for women. A specialist in Obstetrics and Gynecology is considered an OB/GYN and is a physician specifically trained in both obstetrics and gynecology medicine.

Obstetric medicine is focused on pregnancy, labor, and delivery. OB/GYNs are the preferred physicians for women who plan on having children. While Gynecology concentrates on the diagnosis and treatment of disorders affecting the female reproductive organs.

Some services offered by an OB/GYN include:

  • STD screenings
  • Birth control
  • Fertility testing
  • Infertility treatment

Meet Kelly Anderson, DO

Kelly Anderson, DO, 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 have two sons, Luke and Eli. 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 Obstetrics and Gynecological patients in our Outpatient Specialty Clinic. She is dedicated to being a lifelong partner of women’s health needs and is an amazing asset to the Myrtue Medical Center team. She performs OB/GYN surgeries two days per week and delivers babies at our Birthing Center.
