Dr. Garrison's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Garrison "Dr Garrison graduated medical school from Duke University, where he earned the Dean's Recognition Award and was awarded a National Health Service Corps Scholarship. While in residency at the University of Utah in Family Medicine, he served as chief resident and was named Senior Resident of the Year. After completing a fellowship (advanced training) in family medicine obstetrics, he worked on the Blackfeet Reservation in northern Montana, returning to the Community Health Centers in Salt Lake City in 2013. In addition to seeing patients, he's been elected Chair of the Department of Family Medicine at LDS Hospital, and teaches medical students and residents as faculty at the University of Utah Hospital & Clinics."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Garrison "Dr Garrison is committed to providing the highest quality, personalized care.  He is honored to work for Community Health Centers (CHC), which have been part of the Salt Lake City community for over 30 years.  In contrast to a private practice, CHC is a "Federally Qualified Health Center" which means that we are a non-profit organization; we undertake careful quality control and improvement work to make sure that we're providing the best possible care, and that patients -- through our Board of Governors -- have direct input into how the organization runs.  CHC is also an accredited Primary Care Medical Home.  "

My mother and father saw Dr. Garrison at Central City Clinic in Salt Lake City multiple times. Many times he would skim over their concerns and say there wasn't enough time to answer their questions, or go into detail. My mother had a birth control ring inserted, which took him 10 tries, with 6...more

I'm sorry to hear about your frustrations. I do my best to address everyone's concerns and I appreciate the feedback that we can do better.
