April’s Provider of the Month is James Naramore, MD. Dr. Naramore is the most senior active Medical Staff member; credentialed since July of 1980. With his 34 years in private practice as a Family Practice Physician at Family Health, Dr. Naramore has built his practice on his basic philosophy that, “Every patient is important and deserves my best.”
Dr. Naramore was drawn to practice medicine by Dr. Jerry Hannum, who recommended he consider it, given his interest in biology and math. He attended the University of Utah College of Medicine, where he received Family Practice Honors and completed his residency at the University Affiliated Hospitals in Omaha. His desire to meet the needs of the entire patient as well as families, helped him select his area of specialty in Family Practice. After a short time working locum tenens positions in Wyoming and Nebraska, Dr. Naramore settled in Gillette.
