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.

*Dr. Kreiter is always patient & takes time with us. My girls love her.
Emily felt Dr Krieter was nice, but in a condsendingly way.
you could send us a thousand surveys on Dr. Kreiter and we will always rave about her. She has been all 4 of my children's provider since birth, she keeps drawings that they have made for her, remembers minute details from 10 years ago about them and treats them so well and so efficiently that we trust her judgement above any other provider. Kayla was seen for anxiety and was instantly calmed just talking to Dr. Kreiter because she trusts her so much.
I trust Dr. Krieter's medical expertise and I will wait if she gets behind, because she talks to the children as well as talks to the guardian. She is excellent with kids !!!
*Dr. Kreiter is always very understanding and helps to ease my mind when I approach her with concerns.
