Dr. Buker

Dr. Buker came to Chester in the 50s and established a rural hospital that today boasts 25 beds, emergency services and a clinic.  In these parts he is legend.  What brought him to a small town in Montana?  For that matter, why did he pursue a career in medicine?   Philip talks with Doc about his life before arriving in Montana, and several fascinating entrepreneurial and culinary adventures as he made his way through medical school at Yale.  It takes a certain kind of fortitude to be a rural doctor, and as you listen, you’ll realize Doc Buker has always had that in spades.
