Dr. Retherford attended Michigan State University for both undergraduate education and medical school. He then completed a four-year OB/GYN residency program at David Grant USAF Medical Center at Travis Air Force Base in California. He then worked as an active-duty OB/Gyn physician for two years each at Luke AFB and the US Air Force Academy. Upon honorable discharge from the Air Force, he set up a private practice in Grass Valley, CA, where he practiced for the next seven years. Having tired of private practice, he joined Memorial Hospital of Converse County in Douglas, WY where he remained for the past 13 years before moving West to Bear Lake County. He has been Board Certified since 2001, and has thoroughly enjoyed providing the full range of obstetrics and gynecology services to his patients for so many years. He would now like to focus exclusively on his primary passion, gynecological surgery.
His family includes his wife, Lindsey, and their five children along with their beloved dog. His wife is a longtime peri-operative nurse who loves taking care of patients. In their spare time, they enjoy many outdoor activities including skiing, hiking, and water sports. They love the outdoors and are excited to begin exploring all the natural beauty that the little slice of Heaven, we call Bear Lake Valley, has to offer.
