Board-certified pediatrician Shannon S. Yonts, MD, FAAP, joined the Children's Clinic in 2012. She provides comprehensive care to children throughout Billings, Montana.
A native Montanan, Dr. Yonts grew up on a farm and ranch near Culbertson. She finished medical school at the University of North Dakota School of Medicine and completed her residency at Primary Children's Medical Center in Salt Lake City. Dr. Yonts is a member of the American Academy of Pediatrics.
Dr. Yonts loves being a pediatrician. She sees children of all ages and sincerely enjoys being able to get to know her patients and their families and getting to watch them grow over the years.
Outside of the clinic, Dr. Yonts' favorite thing to do is spend time with her family and friends. And most of that time is spent trying to keep up with her three young boys; they keep life very interesting! Dr. Yonts also enjoys running, although she jokes, "not fast, just for fun!"
Finally, Dr. Yonts enjoys reading — both with her boys and on her own. Little known fact — Dr. Yonts was instrumental in bringing the Reach out and Read program to the Children's Clinic, a program that has resulted in our providers giving out over 36,000 books in the last five years!
