Bill Kilgore, PA-C
Bill Kilgore is a Board-Certified Physician Assistant. He earned First Honor Graduate and Class Leader while obtaining his master’s degree from the University of Nebraska Medical Center, while on active duty in the US Army. He has experience in aerospace, emergency, family, and pediatric medicine. He also enjoys practicing wilderness medicine.
While in the Army, Bill served as the Medical Director for a helicopter medical evacuation (MEDEVAC) unit in Afghanistan. Prior to becoming a physician assistant, he was a helicopter pilot and flew medical evacuation missions in the US as well as combat missions in Iraq.
Now that he has retired from the Army, Bill enjoys caring for patients of all ages utilizing a patient-centered model. His goal is to help all of his patients live long, healthy, and joyful lives. He has found this is best accomplished by evaluating and getting to know each patient as an individual and educating his patients. In this way, Bill gets to know the whole person and each patient will have a vital role in making informed decisions about their health, as a member of the patient-provider team.
When not working, Bill enjoys time with his wife, five children, and their Golden-doodle. He likes spending his free time outdoors, running the trails in Briar Chapel, fishing, and riding his Ural motorcycle with a family member or friend accompanying him in the sidecar. One of Bill’s greatest adventures was riding his motorcycle from Alaska to North Carolina, fishing and camping along the way.
