Jamie Schaeffer, MD

Dr. Schaeffer chose to become a family physician because of her love for working with people of all ages who have a variety of health conditions. She cares for babies after they are discharged from the hospital, people who are nearing the end of their lives, and everyone in between. She particularly enjoys caring for multi-generational families and providing hospice care.

She grew up in Montana, in a variety of towns of different sizes.  Knowing she wanted to eventually go to medical school, Dr. Schaeffer spent a year after college volunteering at a hospice for people with AIDS in Houston, Texas. She then returned north to attend medical school at the University of North Dakota. She completed a residency at the Family Medicine Residency program at Rapid City Regional Hospital – now Monument Rapid City.

She has an adult daughter and a son in elementary school. She and her family enjoy living in Rapid City because of the kind people, natural scenery and geographic location. When she is not working, she enjoys spending time with her family, reading, camping, and meeting friends for coffee.
