Internal Medicine

Doug Nelson, MD, joined the Kalispell Regional Healthcare team in 1992 and has been an integral leader in the development and leadership during his time with KRH. Dr. Nelson’s professional focus includes caring for children in pediatric medicine as well as patients of all ages in the field of internal medicine. He spends his days in the clinic at Family Health Care as a primary care provider, but also shares his time in the role of vice president of medical affairs on the KRH executive team. This position requires active involvement in medical staff meetings, decision making, credentialing and peer review, resolution of both medical staff concerns and patient complaints, and quality assessment and improvement. Dr. Nelson also serves as physician liaison for Comprehensive Primary Care Plus (CPC+) and telehealth initiatives. Dr. Nelson’s tenure as a medical staff member, his past roles as KRH chair of medicine, KRH chair of pediatrics and member of the KRH Board of Trustees (six years total; two years as chair) bring a great deal of institutional knowledge to the executive team. When he is not at the clinic or in a meeting, you can find Dr. Nelson enjoying outdoor activities with his family and taking full advantage of the adventures that Montana has to offer.
