Trained in osteopathic medicine, Dr. Carpenter will provide a full spectrum of primary care services at Portage Health’s main campus

“In addition to the multiple areas that the family medicine field encompasses, I have a special interest in dermatology and dermatologic procedures,” she said, adding that it’s important to have a close relationship with her patients. “I try to create a comfortable atmosphere so that my patients feel that they can be open and honest with me.”
