Daniel Franz, MD

Family Medicine

I grew up in Boulder, Colorado, and attended medical school at the University of Colorado in Denver prior to a residency in family medicine at the University of Wyoming- Casper. 

After living in Casper, Wyoming, I became attracted to a more rural setting than what I experienced growing up in Colorado. I fell in love with the Black Hills and liked the size and culture of Rapid City, so I began my practice here in 1987 and have been here ever since.

I originally pursued family practice because I liked the idea of getting to know patients and caring for them throughout various stages of life. I continue to enjoy that aspect, as well as the variety of conditions I am able to treat. I also have special interests in wellness and preventative health.

Family and faith are the most important aspects of my life. I have six children with whom I enjoy mountain biking, fishing and seeing the beautiful sights of the Black Hills.
