Welcome to the Bitterroot Physicians Clinic

provider in mind, featuring a larger and more patient-centered facility.
It opened its doors on August 23, 2013 with ten medical providers, a team
of nurses, registration clerks and support staff ready to deliver quality
care. The patient experience has been enhanced with a total of twenty
