Dr. Gee, MD, PhD, FAAN

At a young age, Allen Gee made an association between stress and health. He chose to pursue this interest in college, taking on a double major in biology and psychology. In medical school, Allen had the opportunity to pursue a PhD, and he chose to enter the field of psycho-neuro-immunology. In order to complete the Ph.D., Allen took a four-year leave of absence from medical school – when he returned, neurology seemed to be the perfect clinical match to the research that he had been involved with. He applied for, and was accepted into, a neurology residency program at the University of Utah, which he finished in 2000 as the chief resident.

Dr. Gee has been in private practice in neurology since 2000, opening the first neurology practice in Sheridan, Wyoming that year, and has been working to improve the access to neurology in Wyoming and the northern Rockies ever since by continuing to recruit neurologists and open practices.

“I believe that integrating and networking neurologists in the area will enhance the access to the specialty, and also make it more acceptable and attractive for neurologists to live and work in small communities in Wyoming,” Dr. Gee notes.

Dr. Gee has been in Cody, Wyoming since since 2004.

“We opened the Cody Clinic in 2002, and in 2004 I had the opportunity to move to Cody with my family and provide services full time to Cody and the Bighorn Basin,” he says.

Cody has always been of interest to Dr. Gee and his family, due to the location and lifestyle and the connection with nature.

“Cody has been a very wonderful place for our family to reside these last 12 years.”
