Dr. Keith was born and raised in the Gila Valley. He graduated from Thatcher High School and Eastern Arizona College, then went on to complete a degree in Biochemistry at the University of Arizona. He attended Medical School at Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska, then returned to Arizona to complete his residency in Pediatrics at Phoenix Childrens Hospital.

Dr. Keith has always been partial to the Gila Valley and has always had the goal of returning to the area to practice pediatrics and help care for the children in his "home town". After working in the White Mountains area at Whiteriver Indian Hospital for several years he was very excited for the opportunity to return to the Gila Valley and practice pediatrics at the Gila Valley Clinic.

Dr. Keith has always had a great love of children and thoroughly enjoys a career that allows him to spend so much time with kids. Dr. Keith is active in the community as a member of the First Things First Regional Council for Graham and Greenlee County, an organization which is working to support local programs to benefit children and help families prepare their children for success as they enter school. He is also very active in his Church and is currently working with the youth program and the Boy Scouts of America. His favorite past time is spending time with his wife and 4 children. He enjoys playing with the kids, yard work, running, singing with the Gila Valley Chorale (organized and directed by his wife Jenny), and spending whole Saturdays preparing delicious barbecue for the family. He is anxious to help the children of our community grow up healthy and happy.
