What do you love about the Palouse?
“My favorite things about our communities are the small town atmosphere and big city opportunities and activities that are always available to residents. It is hard to find that anywhere else! My wife and I have enjoyed raising our family in the area!”
Dr. Stephen Hall has been providing primary family medicine and obstetrical care to area residents for over 13 years! Dr. Hall graduated from medical school at George Washington University in Washington, D.C. in 1985. As the top student in his class, he received the Horowitz Award for academic excellence. After finishing medical school, he completed his three year family medicine residency at David Grant Medical Center, at Travis Air Force Base in California.
I consider it a great privilege to have the opportunity to care for so many individuals and continue looking forward to assisting patients for many more years to come.
Following the completion of his residency, Dr. Hall traveled the world while serving on active duty as a physician in the United States Air Force. He enjoyed his service in the Air Force, taking the opportunity to stay involved with intra-mural sports between squadron teams, taking in the local sights, and developing a great love for the traditions and culture he encountered. Dr. Hall spent two years living on base at the Iraklion Air Station, located on the Greek island of Crete. He was one of the last 30 people who remained on location, assisting with the official closing of the base. The next three years he spent at Aviano Air Base in northeastern Italy.
On a visit to the states, he learned of the need for physicians in the Palouse area. This proved to be the right place for both he and his young family. Finishing his service in the Air Force, he came directly to Pullman and joined the practice of Dr. Jim Duffy in 1997. A year later, this family medicine clinic merged to form the Palouse Medical we know today.
