Treptow, MD (People) Continue Reading craig-l.-treptow-m.d#When:01:00:00Z Dr. Craig Treptow, a diplomat of the American Board of Family Medicine, sees patients from newborns to geriatrics in Great Falls, MT. Inspired by his physician father in rural Nebraska, Dr. Treptow pursued chemistry and mathematics premed study at University of Nebraska-Kearney; his Bachelor of Science degree was magna cum laude. He obtained his Doctor of Medicine in 1992 from Washington University Medical School in St. Louis and completed his residency in Lincoln, NE. Dr. Treptow became interested in the CMA in 2006, and after attending the National CMA Conference in 2007, became convinced of the importance of Catholic Bioethics in the day-to-day practice of medicine. He helped start the Montana Guild in response to that need. He is well informed about the dynamics of physician assisted suicide and its dangers in his state and elsewhere. Dr. Treptow and his psychologist wife, Robin, homeschool their young sons with an emphasis on Latin. He is a classical pianist and plays for his parish; he likes to hike and camp in Glacier National Park and read philosophy in his spare time.
