Hello, and welcome to my Web page. My name is Michael Carter. I'm happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you and tell you about my work as a physician and as a Ob/Gyn at Kaiser Permanente.
I was born in Great Falls, Montana. My father was in the Air Force, so we moved around a lot when I was young. I finally moved to Redlands, CA in 1992 and have lived in the Inland Empire ever since. I graduated from Redlands East Valley in 2000 and then UC Riverside in 2004. I then spent a year in Washington, D.C., completing a master's program. In 2006 I enrolled in Western University for medical school and completed my degree in 2010. I then went on to complete my residency in Ob/Gyn at Arrowhead Regional Medical Center in Colton, California. I pursued medicine because I loved science and the ability to apply to helping people. I have a beautiful wife and two young daughters.
I recently graduated residency from Arrowhead Regional Medical Center in June 2014. I feel incredibly honored to be apart of the Kaiser Permanente family. Both my daughters were born at Kaiser Permanente Riverside Medical Center, so I know from a patient's perspective how great the patient care is here. I pursued Ob/Gyn because of the variety and the exciting challenges that this field presents. My first passion was for obstetrics, and I still enjoy the challenges of high-risk pregnancies. My current interests involve minimally invasive gynecology; I love procedures involving laparoscopy. These procedures are very challenging and rewarding and they benefit the patients so much.
I thrive by spending time with my wife, two daughters, and my two pugs. My hobbies include running and working out at the gym. I also enjoy getting out and playing golf occasionally. Now that I am done with residency I hope to start regularly running in a couple of half marathons each year.
