    Provider Information

    Dr. James "Jim" Little, Jr., spent most of his childhood in Jackson,
    Wyoming. His father, Dr. Jim Little, Sr., was the first pediatrician in
    Jackson and still practices as a pediatrician here.

    Dr. Little, Jr., graduated from Jackson Hole High School and earned a
    bachelor's degree in television and film production at Syracuse University.
    During college and afterward, he developed a passion for medicine while
    working as a professional and volunteer Emergency Medical Technician (EMT).
    After a brief stint working in TV news and film production, he followed
    his dream and went back to medical school. In 1998, he graduated from
    the University of Colorado School of Medicine, where he was president
    of his medical school class. He completed his residency training in family
    medicine at Oregon Health Sciences University in Portland, Oregon.

    After practicing family medicine in the Portland area for seven years,
    Dr. Little, Jr., had the opportunity to return home to Jackson Hole in 2008.

    Jim embraces a patient-centric philosophy of medicine. He believes passionately
    in the importance of a strong doctor-patient collaboration in medical
    care and treating the whole person, and not just focusing on individual
    organs or medical conditions. He has special interests in sports and wilderness
    medicine, aviation medicine, pediatric care, and urgent care for children
    and adults of all ages. He is board certified in family medicine and is
    also a Senior FAA Aviation Medical Examiner.

    When not practicing medicine, Dr. Little Jr. is an avid skier, volunteers
    as a firefighter with Jackson Fire/EMS, and flies as a search and rescue
    mission pilot with Civil Air Patrol.

    It's important to me that my doctor and staff talk to me, not the computer. I know that my records are on the computer and those records need to be accessed, but it is very appreciated when the personal touch and conversation continues to be included in the visit. Dr. Little and staff have done this and I'm thankful they do.

    I asked for a follow-up blood draw for lipids, ask for a routine physical while there and Dr Little suggested I get a colonoscopy as part of that and I was granted all the requests. I was even contacted by the same day surgery personnel about scheduling my colonoscopy before I arrived home in Star Valley.
