Introducing our newest location: Premier Family Medical at Mountain Point, located on the second floor of Mountain Point Medical Center, 3000 North Triumph Boulevard, in Lehi, on the east side of I-15 and across from Thanksgiving Point. Our brand new, state-of-the-art office is staffed by highly qualified and caring providers Dr. Melinda Midgley, Dr. Kerry Welch, and Nurse Practitioner, LuAnn Jacobs-Peterson.
While all three providers have years of experience with a wide range of family practice services, Dr. Midgley enjoys providing a full spectrum of pediatric care from the day baby leaves the hospital through adulthood. Whether your child needs a circumcision or well child check, treatment for an earache or tummy ache, Dr. Midgley would love to help! She has expertise with derm procedures, such as freezing warts, removing moles, lumps, sebaceous cysts, and skin tags. She can perform incision and/or draining of abscesses. She also provides a full range of services with women's health, including colposcopies when indicated by an abnormal pap smear.
Dr. Welch is one of very few doctors in the area who can do flight physicals. If that is your need, please call. He provides OB care to pregnant women and tubal ligations when you are done having babies. If a vasectomy is needed, Dr. Welch does those too.
Whatever your need or concern, we would love to become your healthcare providers. Give us a call at (801) 753-4650.
Each year in the United States, more than 44,000 people take their own lives . That’s an average of 121 suicides per day. It’s estimated that for every one reported, 12 more people engage in self-harm, whether intentional suicide attempts or not.
With rates on a steady incline, it’s past time for action. Each and every one of us needs to have a part in supporting those who struggle with suicidal thoughts. In order to be of any help, though, we need to be able to recognize the signs of a person on the brink. What should you look for and how can you help?
It's estimated that one in five high school athletes will suffer a concussion during sports season. Younger athletes have the highest rate of concussions. While more perceived contact sports like football are thought to be the highest risk for a potential concussion, all sports carry a similar risk and demand similar precaution and treatment. As a parent, your first instinct might be to ban your child from playing sports altogether. But is that really necessary? No. Why do we say this?For one thing, if you encourage your child to play safely and receive training in head injury prevention, you can minimize risk. And if your child does happen to suffer from a concussion, there are steps you can take to ensure that they heal as quickly and as completely as possible.
