History & Mission


The Women’s Physician Group was founded in 1999 by Dr. Belvia Carter after seventeen years of practicing medicine. Although it began as a midtown-based practice, our group later expanded into Germantown with an office on the campus of Methodist Le Bonheur Hospital.  Our medical staff has grown over the years to include an all-female team of four physicians and two nurse practitioners. 

Our mission is to provide the women of the Memphis area with compassionate and thorough care in an encouraging setting.   We strive daily to meet this goal and help the women of our practice develop healthier bodies and lifestyles.
