About Me

Expert & Compassionate Care for Women

For experienced and compassionate women’s health care, trust Kirstin Sholes, MD, an obstetrician and gynecologist at Avera Medical Group Specialty Care in Brookings, SD.

“I love the variety of being an OB/GYN physician,” says Dr. Sholes. “I get to see patients in the clinic, be hands-on with procedures and deliver babies, which is really special.”

In addition to annual well-woman exams, prenatal care and pregnancy and postpartum care, Dr. Sholes offers gynecologic surgery, including laparoscopic hysterectomy. This innovative procedure promotes faster recovery, minimal scarring and a quicker return to normal activities.

Active Lifestyle

In her free time, Dr. Sholes enjoys spending time with her family, especially on their ranch, being outdoors, reading, and going to concerts and movies.
