Kate Score, M.D., To Begin Family Practice At Cole Creek Primary Care

Wyoming Medical Center

Cole Creek Primary Care, which is located at the Wyoming Medical Center East Campus, joins the network of Wyoming Medical Center primary care clinics spread across the city of Casper including Mesa Primary Care on the West side of town and Sage Primary Care in the center of town.

Dr. Score practices family medicine and is beginning her family practice there, where she welcomes patients of all ages.

Growing up in Elgin, Nebraska, a town of around 750 people, Dr. Score is all too familiar with small town life. She enjoys working in rural areas because the people “are a little easier to relate to” and “just seem more genuine to me”.

At the age of 17, she enlisted with the Air Force Reserves where she eventually became a medic. Her two brothers also served, though in a different capacity. They are both Black Hawk helicopter pilots.

After 11 years of service Dr. Score decided that she wanted to be more involved in the treatment of patients; so she attended college in Chadron and then medical school at the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha. She completed her residency at Sioux Falls Family Medicine Residency in South Dakota before starting her first practice in Hot Springs.

Dr. Score stated that she has a special interest in women’s health because “when I was a medic, I was the only female on a lot of times”. She found herself often being the go-to resource for female patients on topics including birth control, pregnancy, miscarriage and STDs. She stated that the public in general is often uneducated and avoids talking about women’s health, but that she has “no problem with making the subject more comfortable and having an open discussion”.

After getting engaged to her fiance, they made the move to Casper. He is an environmental engineer who was working in Colorado at the time but was looking for a way to get back to Wyoming. He now works at Anadarko in Douglas.

Dr. Score is excited to be living in Casper and recalls that after moving into their new home, her neighbors brought her bread and jam. She has found the medical community in Casper to be “very open and very friendly” and was also surprised by the number of specialists here.

When asked what she is looking forward to most, Dr. Score said that she used to be very outdoorsy before she got into medical school.

“I would like to get back into that. My fiance is super into fishing. I have heard about Miracle Mile from everyone I talk to, so we are excited to do that in the summer. And we’d also like to explore the trails”.
