Our physicians are experts…and great providers, too! Meet
Paul Rigsby, DO, the Campbell County Health October 2017 Provider of the Month.
Dr. Rigsby joined the medical staff in 2015, and practices at
Gillette Medical Imaging. He attended medical school at the
Arizona College of Osteopathic Medicine in Glendale, completed a residency in Radiology at
Michigan State University (MSU) and went on to complete an MRI Fellowship at MSU.
Dr. Rigsby is practically a native, having moved to Gillette with his family
at the age of four. Not a stranger to CCH either, he worked for several
years in the
Rehabilitation Services department before attending medical school.
Radiology was not on his original list of specialties, but a clinical rotation with
a radiologist in Kingman, AZ changed his mind. Dr. Rigsby always had an
appreciation for anatomy while in medical school, and was a teaching assistant
in the Cadaver Lab. He feels that Radiology gives him both a variety of
challenges and the opportunity to interact with patients. He says that
while some people may think that Radiology is straightforward and objective,
it takes time and training to become discerning and well-versed in this
Dr. Rigsby and his wife
Lora, an anesthesiologist, wanted to live in a smaller community to work and
raise their family. He saw an open radiology position while in residency,
Dr. Joe Lawrence to inquire. The position opened up again while he was in his Fellowship
program, a happy coincidence for the Rigsbys and CCH.
The Rigsbys have three children, Summer, 8; Andrew, 5; and Aria, 2. They
enjoy traveling and outdoor activities with their children, like snowmobiling
and snowboarding. Dr. Rigsby wants his children to grow up with the same
lifestyle he enjoyed.
Thank you, Dr. Rigsby, for providing our patients with excellent care.
