Physician & Medical Director
Dr. Gary came to LVDHC in 1993, when he began filling in for us, and the community embraced his authentic care and unique approach to their healthcare needs. In a short period, it became apparent to both the Tribal leadership and Dr. Gary that he was where he was meant to be, “Home”. Throughout the years serving LVD, Dr. Gary truly values the qualified team at the health center and promotes the common goal of providing the best care for each and every patient that comes through the door.
He has strong passion for his family, friends, music and food. He feels blessed to share his life with wife Katy, and four successful children, Kristine, Jessica, Nicholas and Samantha. In his spare time he enjoys being in the outdoors hunting, fishing, skiing, snowshoeing with his sidekick, Thor, Labrador retriever.
