Supporting Women's Health

Dr. Kreitlow is a board-certified specialist in Obstetrics and Gynecology who knows that excellent women’s health care helps not only her patients, but their families and communities, too.
 
“I’ve delivered more than 2,000 babies, and that never gets old,” she says. “And women are often the gatekeepers of family health. So I also enjoy helping women with their medical needs and with maintaining a healthy lifestyle, because that can improve the overall health of their children and the rest of their families.”

Comprehensive Care

Dr. Kreitlow is a graduate of the Medical College of Wisconsin and completed her residency at the University of Minnesota. She is a fellow of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
 
A native Wisconsinite, Dr. Kreitlow grew up on a dairy farm near Green Bay and practiced medicine for nearly 20 years in Chippewa Falls. After their two daughters were grown, she and her husband moved to the Cayman Islands, where she practiced for more than two years before returning to join Associated Physicians in 2017.
 
Dr. Kreitlow has long believed strongly in the importance of providing treatment and screening to women throughout the world, especially to those in developing nations. As a result, she has served on medical mission trips, bringing World Health Organization protocols to patients in Kenya, Nicaragua and Uganda. “We provide care there, and we train other providers,” she says. “Our outcomes have reduced incidences of cervical cancer in those countries, which is the third-largest cancer killer of women in the world.”

Devoted to Excellence
 
At Associated Physicians, Dr. Kreitlow’s practice includes primary care and specialty obstetrics and gynecology, abdominal surgery, and health care for women of all ages. She notes that becoming a physician was her life’s goal from a young age. “Like science, there’s so much you can do in the field to help people,” she says. “No two days are the same, and it’s always interesting and rewarding.”
 
Dr. Kreitlow says Madison’s vibrancy drew her to the city. She enjoys reading, time with family, traveling, and her medical mission work. “I can’t think of anything more important and fulfilling than working in women’s health care,” she says. “It’s a great legacy to leave.”
