Meet Paul Rigsby, DO, CCH October 2017 Provider of the Month

Nov 01, 2017

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 medical specialty.

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, and emailed 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.
