Crystal Bahnson, CPNP-PC



Phone: (406) 731-8865


Crystal Bahnson is a certified pediatric nurse practitioner who provides primary care, such as well child visits and sports physicals as well as treating common childhood illnesses. She’s especially interested in preventive medicine and helping families keep their children safe and healthy.

Crystal chose her career after witnessing a medical emergency when she was a young girl. Very few bystanders were able to help, and according to Crystal the event “placed a desire in my heart to enter the healthcare field and make a difference in the lives of patients and families.” Combined with her love of children, the experience showed her that pediatrics was her calling.

As a pediatric nurse practitioner, Crystal is dedicated to using evidence based medicine with critical thinking and compassion as she works together with patients. “I enjoy the relationships that develop with children and their families with each visit,” she says. “It is such a privilege to be a part of the journey of a child's life.”

When she’s not caring for patients, you’ll find Crystal hiking, fishing, hunting, camping and exploring the outdoors with her husband and their two German shorthaired pointers. She also enjoys racecars and owns a 1967 and a 2011 Camaro.

Crystal’s advice for patients comes from Christopher Robin, who tells Winnie the Pooh, “Promise me you’ll always remember that you’re braver than you believe, stronger than you seem and smarter than you think.”
