Dr. Gary Petry

St. Vincent Hospital welcomed Dr. Gary Petry to the Leadville Medical Clinic in 2013. He pursued his medical degree at Kansas University of Medicine from 1994 to 1998. His residency followed at Smokey Hill Family Practice in Salina where he specialized in Rural Family Medicine. In 2001 Dr. Petry was employed by Geary Community Hospital in Junction City, Kansas as a family practice physician, working in both areas of inpatient and outpatient care. Since 2008 Dr. Petry has been working in the emergency department at the same hospital. “I moved to Leadville because of my hobbies and my enthusiasm for mountain recreation. I have vacationed regularly in Lake County. At the same time I am committed to quality rural healthcare and don’t believe ‘rural healthcare’ means ‘less healthcare’”, said Petry. When asked what concerns him about health issues Petry replied, “the epidemic of obesity, childhood obesity, diabetes and metabolic syndrome, these concern me greatly. I look forward to working with St. Vincent Hospital, and my new colleagues at the clinic to promote better health for Lake County.”
