Thanks for the sugestions all!

I have read the Christy series but that was many years ago, maybe its time to re-read it!

Also for those who have never seen Dr. Quinn,Medicine Woman ( I highly sugest you rent it, Netflix has it) it is about a female Doctor from the east who settles in a pioneer town in the west.

The Robyn Carr series Grace Valley has a woman doctor in the rural part of California, but it is contemporary, not Western.  I really liked the series.

Also, don't miss

 My Name Is Mary Sutter
Author: Robin Oliveira          It is set in Civil War times but has the same flavor as Dr. Quinn and is a great novel about a woman doctor.
