Jennifer Bentwood, MD

Why did you choose Moscow, ID?

After graduating from residency in Lawrence MA, and then working in Lynn MA for a year, I moved to Moscow ID to be closer to my husband’s family.

Why did you choose family practice as your specialty?

I chose Family Practice because I enjoy all aspects of medicine, from pediatrics to geriatrics and outpatient and inpatient medicine.  My primary goal of being a Family Physician is to focus on preventive care and keeping families healthy.  After completing a full spectrum family medicine residency in Lawrence, MA, I did a one year fellowship in surgical obstetrics, including cesarean sections, tubal ligations and dilatation and curettage. Obstetrical care is something I am passionate about and I feel fortunate that Moscow Family Medicine is a practice in which I am able to continue to provide prenatal care.

Family, Hobbies and Interests

I have three amazing step children who live here in Moscow and are keeping my life far more interesting than it would have been otherwise.  I enjoy spending time with them, learning how to be a mom, and am looking forward to watching them participate on their multiple sports teams.

Being from New Hampshire, I have had the opportunity to hike in the White Mountains, and can’t wait to get out and do some hiking here in Idaho. Recommendations are welcome.
