Dr. Gragert is a dad, husband, skier, climber and physician. He has been blessed with a wonderful family, who have been supportive through his extensive academic and post-graduate medical training. Dr. Gragert believes that conventional medicine can help supplement a healthy life. However, it is only a part in a much a bigger picture. Conventional medicine can help the body heal or prevent disease, but it has limitations. Health and wellness cannot be defined or supported through simple lab-tests alone. Dr. Gragert knows that every person is unique and individual. For this reason, their care should be unique, individual and encompass all aspects of wellness. From the physical to the emotional. Being a cancer survivor, he understands that the power of human kindness and connection can be more powerful than the most potent medicine.
Dr. Gragert completed his undergraduate work at Carroll College in Helena, Montana. He then moved to Idaho, where he met his wife while completing his Masters in Exercise Physiology, at Boise State University. He had been set to complete his pHD. However, he did not want to spend his career in the lab. This ultimately led him to medicine. He completed his medical degree at Pacific Northwest University of Health Sciences in Washington state. Dr. Gragert completed his residency in Family Medicine at the University of Oklahoma. During his time in residency, he concomitantly completed his Masters in Public Health, and his fellowship in Wilderness Medicine.
