Meet Angela Biggs, MD, the June 2017 Provider of the Month

Jun 23, 2017

Our physicians are experts... and great people too!

Meet Angela Biggs, MD, the June 2017 Provider of the Month. Dr. Biggs joined the medical staff in 2005 and is board-certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology. She now practices at Summit OB/GYN in Gillette, Wyoming. A native of Worland, Wyoming, Dr. Biggs attended Creighton University School of Medicine in Omaha and completed a residency at Michigan State Medical Education and Research Center in Grand Rapids. For Dr. Biggs, obstetrics and gynecology provides a terrific balance of her favorite parts of medicine, building long term relationships with patients while still having the opportunity to provide surgical solutions. She also says she loves birthday parties!

Dr. Biggs credits her mother for starting her on the path to a career in medicine. During middle school, a class project was to research possible career choices. Her mother suggested she become an OB GYN. Dr. Biggs didn’t even know what that was, but when her mom explained it was ‘a doctor for women’, it sparked her interest – especially since her mom had to travel three hours just to obtain OB GYN services. In medical school, she kept an open mind on all of her rotations and considered several specialties, including family medicine and cardiology, but on her OB GYN rotation she felt her true calling.

Dr. Biggs says she is a Wyoming girl at heart, and never thought about living anywhere else. She met her husband, Dr. Rodney Biggs, at the University of Wyoming. They completed their medical education and training together. They chose to return to Wyoming and Gillette specifically because of the people. She believes Gillette was and continues to be the most welcoming community of any town in Wyoming, and it was an easy choice to come here to practice. She can’t imagine living anywhere else.

Giving back is also important to Dr. Biggs. She has served on numerous medical staff committees, and currently serves on the faculty of the University of Washington for the WWAMI clerkship program. She is the medical director of the Women’s Resource Center for crisis pregnancies. She believes in making the effort to create solutions if you can.

She and her family have been a part of this community for 12 years and have established roots. The Biggs’ have four children, Zoe, 17; Sophia, 13; Michael, 11 and John, 6. All the kids are involved in community activities ranging from the arts to sports. She and the family love to go to the mountains to fish, hike, 4-wheel and snowmobile.

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