Learn about Dr. Paulk

Personal Bio

Dr. Nicholas Paulk is a native to Salt Lake City where he attended the University of Utah for his undergraduate degree in Biology. He then went to OHSU in Portland Oregon for medical school and proceeded to Exempla St. Joseph's for general surgery residency in Denver Colorado. He returned to Salt Lake in 2011 to practice General Surgery with emphasis on advanced laparoscopy and robotic surgery. He joined Rocky Mountain Associated Physicians in order to pursue bariatric surgery in addition to advanced laparoscopic surgery and robotic surgery. Dr. Paulk is board certified in general surgery and a Fellow of the American College of Surgery.

"Bariatric surgery is not just lifesaving – it is transformative. Those who undergo surgery routinely report that the surgery changed their lives. They feel better, they're more healthy and active, and they're not limited by their disease. Not only do they have more life, they have better life. I can't think of any area in medicine where a doctor is as privileged to be part of such a positively life altering endeavor as in bariatric surgery." –Dr. Paulk

Dr. Paulk is married with three children. Outside of work, he coaches his son's baseball team, participates in several road and mountain bike races each year, and is an avid skier. He is fluent in Italian and enjoys camping and going to Lake Powell with his family.
