Ryan has a strong clinical background in pediatrics, family practice and urgent care with additional experience providing care to troubled youth in the Juvenile Justice System. Before obtaining his degree from the University of Utah, Ryan worked as a Registered Nurse in the Thoracic Intensive Care Unit at Intermountain Medical Center caring for critically ill patients.
Ryan believes in partnering with patients and families through a holistic approach to promote health and happiness through effective communication and the use of the most current up-to-date medical information and practices. He believes it is of the utmost importance to listen to his patients and families concerns and provide honest and accurate information to provide the best care possible.
He’s also a firm believer that providing preventative care is crucial to health and happiness and prevention of illness, disease and disability. People are not numbers, symptoms or diagnoses and they should not be treated as such. Patients should be respected and listened to, with cultural and personal preferences taken into consideration, and no concern or detail is too small to address. He is noted among his peers for his compassion, honesty and devotion to his patients.
Ryan is a native to Utah and loves the people, various cultures, and values. He worked during his doctorate to implement an obesity screening and management protocol at the University of Utah Madsen Health Clinic and partnered with researchers at the University of Utah to improve Labor and Delivery pain management. He was also the Vice President of the Primary Care Progress Salt Lake City Chapter, and volunteered with TRAILS at the University of Utah to bring recreational activities to paraplegic and quadriplegic patients. Ryan is excited to be with Granger Medical Clinic to partner with patients, families, and their loved ones while promoting their health, happiness and well-being.
In his spare time, Ryan enjoys spending time with his wife and son doing anything outdoors including running, hiking and golf. He also enjoys playing guitar and the ukulele. His favorite food rotates, but he always comes back to Thai food.
