I have been a Physician Assistant since 1992. My first 7 years were in a family practice in NH. In 1999 my family and I moved to Stanley Idaho, where I took over a remote clinic doing Family and Emergency medicine. In 2003, I continued both types of care in Salmon Idaho, until I came to work for Providence Medical Group in 2008. It was then that I transitioned to full time Emergency Medicine providing services to the hospitals in Dillon and Plains for the rural ER outreach of St. Patricks Hospital. In June of 2017, My wife and I relocatated to the Bitterroot Valley when I started working in Urgent care and Occupational Health for Providence. I love all aspects of Medicine, I especially enjoy taking care of families and getting to know the local folks. I am comfortable with infants to the elderly, providing urgent care and work related injuries for those in need.

Annual DOT physical... in and out quickly.Providence Patient
Very helpful and personableProvidence Patient
I understand you are a business to make money but I haven't much money. I went to a Providence facility because of my medical history records are with them and I have a yearly at Heart Institute for I have a stent. I am in the best shape I have been in 2 decades. I made an appointment with OHS for a DOT physical certificate. I drive a Dump tuck once or twice a week in the Frenchtown area. When I arrived to my appointment I filled out paperwork and a bonus one that the receptionist says I'll have to fil out also. It was a sleep apnea questionnaire. This is seemingly to drum up more money I was thinking and then at the end of my physical the PA said I need a treadmill stress test, other wise he will only allow 3 months for DOT certificate. The normal duration is 2 years. I understand DOT guidelines, and because of my stent it probably should be a year, because I am in the hands of Providence's care and being monitored yearly with no problems at all. Any how I called to see how much the stress test was and the answer was 3,000 dollars. I haven't worked all winter and can't afford that. I worked for St Pats for 17 years and since changing Providence it seems kind of greedy for my money. It really seems that way. So my next DOT physical exam will be through someone else. I cant afford you guys anymore. Please prove me wrong.Providence Patient
