Meet Billie Wilkerson, MD, the October 2016 Provider of the Month

Meet Billie Wilkerson, MD, the October 2016 Provider of the Month

Our physicians are experts and great people too!

Meet Billie Wilkerson, MD. Dr. Wilkerson is Board Certified in Family Medicine and joined the medical staff in 2002. She was born and raised in Gillette and was one of the first two recipients of the Board of Trustees’ scholarship for healthcare careers. Her first exposure to Campbell County Health was at “Senior Medical Day” as a Campbell County High School student, where she spent the day observing in the ICU.

Dr. Wilkerson’s father Bill Fitch was proud to see his daughter attend medical school, and she credits his influence in raising her to not back down from attaining her goals.

While in medical school at Creighton University, Dr. Wilkerson had the opportunity to do her family practice rotation with Dr. Jim Naramore. She returned during residency to do her general surgery rotation with Drs. Sara Hartsaw and Dave Crowder. Both her husband Kent’s parents and her parents lived in Gillette, so things just fell into place when Dr. Naramore offered her a job after she completed her residency. Caring for her former classmates was never a problem, but Dr. Wilkerson admits that caring for the friends of her parents and grandparents took a little getting used to.

Dr. Wilkerson believes that her role is to share her knowledge and educate her patients, and then help guide them to making their own choices about their healthcare.

When she’s not practicing, Dr. Wilkerson is a self-confessed professional dance mom for her daughter Laini. She volunteers for several local organizations including Bell Nob Swing for the Cure. She also loves taking family vacations with Laini, her son Davis and husband Kent.

Thank you Dr. Wilkerson, for providing our patients with excellent care.
