Melanie Carter M.D.


I am a Colorado native and a graduate from John Peter Smith Hospital OB/GYN residency in Fort Worth, TX. My husband, son and I are thrilled to be back in Colorado and to be making our home in Broomfield. My passion for OB/GYN began in medical school when I discovered a love for taking care of other women as well as an interest in surgery. My residency program provided me with incredible training and I am comfortable providing care for a wide range of women’s health concerns from contraception, to prenatal care, to menopause and beyond. Outside of work, I enjoy golfing, road biking and doing yoga and plan to spend as much time as possible in the great Colorado outdoors.

What makes Colorado home to you?

I am a Colorado native and apart from a brief 4 years in Texas for my residency I have lived in Colorado my whole life. Although I went to the University of Colorado for medical school, I am a Colorado State Ram at heart. My family and my husband’s family are all in Colorado and we plan to make Colorado home for the rest of our lives.

What are your passions outside of work?

My family is my priority but I also enjoy golf, road biking, yoga and cooking. I love the Colorado weather and try to spend as much time outside soaking up the sun as possible.

Why did you become an OB/GYN?

I have a passion for women’s care because I can relate to my patients and appreciate the variety of care that I can provide. I love that the scope of OB/GYN covers the entire lifespan and that I can care for patients during pivotal points in their lives, from childbirth to menopause. My passion is to help women understand and care for their bodies so that they can live happy, healthy, full lives. I am honored that I am able to have the opportunity to impact women’s lives through their healthcare.

What in your career are you most proud?

I received a teaching award from my residency department when I graduated the program which I was very honored to receive as I felt this reflected both my enthusiasm for teaching residents and medical students but also my passion to provide understanding and information to my patients.

What is the most important part of your job?

My patients. Each person I interact with is an individual with unique needs and concerns and I love that I can make a difference in individual lives.

Are you accepting new patients?
