Our physicians are experts and great people too! Meet Jim Price, DO, the January 2016 Provider of the Month.
Dr. Price is Board Certified in Anesthesiology and joined the medical staff in 2012. He attended medical school at Western University in Pomona, Calif., and completed his Anesthesiology residency at the
University of Florida in Gainesville. Dr. Price came to Gillette from Vail, Colo., and just opened his own anesthesia practice, Gillette Anesthesia Specialists.
You could say that Dr. Price’s interest in medicine began as a youngster. He admits to reading encyclopedias in elementary school and always had a strong interest in zoology.
According to Dr. Price, the development of new and better medications and more precise techniques have greatly decreased the side effects of anesthesia and improved the ability to control pain. He believes that healthcare in general is much more conscious of the importance of good pain management, and its contribution to better patient outcomes and decreased anxiety. He enjoys working in a rural setting like Gillette because it enables him to spend more time with patients, both before a procedure and with follow-up care. Dr. Price is both humbled and honored by the trust that patients place in him for their care.
Dr. Price and his wife Keri have three children; Greta, Dominic and Sydney. Keri has been named the principal of the new Stocktrail dual-immersion school, now under construction.
When he’s not practicing medicine, Dr. Price likes to bow hunt, as well as breed and train Chesapeake Bay retrievers for field trials.
Thank you Dr. Price, for providing our patients with excellent care.
