Kirsten B. Carter, MD

Internal Medicine Physician

Grace Medical Home

Dr. Kirsten B. Carter has a passion for helping others.

After achieving her medical degree and her post-graduation residency, Kirsten undertook a string of volunteer efforts while furthering her career in private practice, including serving the homeless through Orange County’s Primary Care Access Network. Her passion for volunteering and helping others was so strong that she decided to leave the practice to fill the need of providing medical care to the uninsured and underinsured in our community.

She began volunteering at Grace Medical Home, a medical home dedicated to providing low-cost primary health care to the working poor.  Eight years later, Dr. Carter is on staff and greets every patient with a welcoming smile and encouraging word, giving hope and healing to so many. 

Her humor, love for serving and dedication to this community is inspiring and she will share her journey with the Women's Executive Council's luncheon at the Citrus Club.
