Question: What brought you to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center?
Answer: After pediatric residency, I was a Pediatrics faculty member from 1995-2001. When a position opened at Pediatrics-Westgate, I joined the world of primary care pediatrics.
Q: What are your clinical specialties?
A: I am a strong advocate of breastfeeding medicine and am a member of the Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine. I also have an interest in child abuse issues, as I worked in that specialty when I was a faculty member.
Q: Why did you decide to become a primary care doctor?
A: I thoroughly enjoy working with children and their families in the primary care setting. It is very satisfying watching newborns become healthy adolescents. I enjoy knowing the family in which a child grows up and how that family impacts the child’s health.
Q: What is your patient care philosophy?
A: All children deserve a medical home staffed by caring, thoughtful physicians. All children are members of a family and community, and these factors need to be addressed when it comes to giving medical care to children.
Q: What do you enjoy most about working with patients?
A: The majority of children are healthy in spite of the usual childhood illnesses that come their way. I truly enjoy the unique outlook and view of the world that children offer. Ask them a question and I always learn something new!
Q: What type of volunteer and/or community activities are you involved in?
A: I speak twice a year at the NC Lactation Educators Course on Vitamin D and breastfeeding.
Q: What fun facts should we know about you?
A: I enjoy reading, gardening and filling my yard with yard art, backyard bird watching and knitting. I also have a fondness for Springer Spaniels.

I have been familiar with Dr. Kreiter for years, but have never had her as a primary for either of my children. This was our first one-on-one. She really impressed me with her interactions with my child, her knowledge and compassion.
We love Dr. Kreiter. She is a very caring provider and is great with our kids, ages 2-9.
I love how Dr. Kreiter listens to me and involves my daughter in the visit.
All the doctors are awsome!
very caring and concern at all times highly recommended for being a great provider
Dr. Kreiter makes me feel like my daughter and I are important to her and she explains things clearly but doesn't talk down to me.
We would trust Dr. Kreiter with any issue involving our kids. She is great!
Dr. Kreiter has been the physician for all 3 of my children since birth. I wouldn't dream of taking them anywhere else for care. We have a wonderful relationship and she is really awesome with the kids. They actually get excited to go see her!
