Rachel N. Kreis, MD

Dr. Kreis specializes in gynecology and obstetrics.


Dr. Kreis passionately cares for women of all ages with varying health concerns. Dr. Kreis believes in taking the time to hear each patient’s story to get a full understanding of what they’re going through in their lives. She loves to educate women about their health challenges and provide multiple treatment options so that they can—together—craft a clear treatment plan.


Dr. Kreis received a Bachelor of Science in Biology with honors from Duke University and her medical degree with distinction from the University of North Carolina School of Medicine in Chapel Hill. She continued her education there with a residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology. Throughout her education, Dr. Kreis has received numerous academic and service accolades resulting in scholarships, grants and teaching opportunities. Additionally, she co-directed the Student Health Action Coalition (SHAC) student-run medical clinic while at Chapel Hill.


Dr. Kreis’ passion for helping women extends far beyond our borders. She is dedicated to caring for women in underserved countries with low-resource medicine and has volunteered and led programs in South Africa, Zambia, Botswana, India, Tanzania, Honduras and most recently, Cambodia. Not only does Dr. Kreis care for women overseas, she also helps educate and train local providers so that better care is available to women long after she’s gone. When she’s not caring for women, Dr. Kreis loves dance, yoga, painting and cooking, not necessarily in that order. And, she has two rescue cats—Oscar and Ava.
