Dr. Scott Bontrager grew up in a small farm town in north Florida. After graduating with a Bachelor’s of Science degree from Florida State University, Dr. Bontrager taught science at the high school in his hometown until he ventured west to complete his Master’s Degree in Physician Assistant Studies at Idaho State University. After working several years in Family Medicine, a desire to better serve his patients drove him to return east and enroll in medical school at East Tennessee State University.
Now, Dr. Bontrager has returned to Big Sky Country and is excited to say he is here to stay. When he isn’t working, Dr. Bontrager loves to spend time hunting grouse and pheasant with his puddle pointer, Penny. Fishing, kayaking, and camping with his wife, kids and granddaughter also fill his free time. Dr. Bontrager plans to establish a practice in one of Southeast Idaho’s rural communities upon completion of residency.
