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.
In 2011, the CDC reported that 1 in 12 people in the US (approximately 25 million) have asthma , with the numbers rising every year. Can you imagine, then, how many people have chronic asthma in 2017?
Many people develop the disease as children. From then on they experience episodes of shortness of breath, chest tightening, coughing fits and wheezing. During asthma attacks, the airways leading to the lungs constrict, preventing enough air from passing in and out. Additionally, the body produces extra mucus, clogging the airways even more.Needless to say, it can be a challenge for children and adults alike to live with this condition. Yet, you’ll be happy to know that it is manageable and doesn’t have to stop you from living a full, happy and healthy life. What are some things you can do to keep your asthma under wraps instead of it keeping you under wraps?
When most people hear that word arthritis, they immediately associate it with adults — especially older individuals. While the Arthritis Foundation does report that close to 50% of people over age 65 do have some form of arthritis , many younger individuals are also living with it.
In fact, two-thirds of those diagnosed are under age 65. You might be surprised to know that some 300,000 children of varying ages are a part of this group! The month of July is Juvenile Arthritis Awareness month.The purpose is to educate parents and others on this painful condition and help them to support children who bravely battle it each day. Why not test your current knowledge on this important subject?
