Sheridan Memorial Hospital (SMH) is pleased to welcome Derek Redinger, DO, to the Internal Medicine Clinic in the hospital’s Outpatient Center. Dr. Redinger grew up in Big Horn and was drawn to return to SMH first and foremost because of the people of Sheridan. Dr. Redinger became interested in a career in medicine after his first high school Anatomy & Physiology class led him to volunteer at Sheridan Memorial. It felt natural for him to return to SMH to begin his career in medicine after building so many connections at the hospital throughout his childhood and adolescence.
While Dr. Redinger’s initial interest was in surgery, he decided to specialize in Internal Medicine because he is dedicated to building strong relationships with his patients and knows that in this setting, he will be able to spend enough time with people to do so. One of his biggest goals is to get to know his patients when they are well so he can understand their desires for health and well-being, in addition to helping them recover when they are ill or struggling.
Dr. Redinger was mentored during his residency by Dr. Kristopher Schamber, Internal Medicine physician and he is excited to begin his career working with the Internal Medicine team. “I felt welcomed by the team immediately,” he said, “and I know I will be supported by the other physicians as we work together to provide excellent patient-centered care to the people of Sheridan.”
When he’s not at work, Dr. Redinger and his wife can enjoy the great outdoors hiking, mountain biking, fishing and camping. He looks forward to returning to Wyoming hunting this fall after being away for years.
