Procedures / Treatments

  • Abscess Draining Ogden Clinic physicians diagnose and treat abscesses often, usually through draining the sore. Abscesses are not difficult to drain but should be drained professionally. Schedule an appointment today if you have a sore larger than 1 cm or if it continues to grow.
  • Asthma Management Asthma management will involve taking your prescribed medication as directed by your Ogden Clinic physician and avoiding known asthma triggers
  • Cholesterol Management A treatment plan designed by a healthcare provider to lower a patient’s cholesterol level. A plan includes recommendations for improved lifestyle, diet, weight, and physical activity. Other risk factors are also assessed that can affect a patient’s cholesterol level. In some cases, cholesterol-lowering medications may also provide additional benefit to managing a healthy cholesterol level. Cholesterol management also involves decreasing the LDL cholesterol (“bad” cholesterol) and making sure HDL (“good” cholesterol) is at recommended levels. Patients and healthcare professionals work together to help improve and maintain heart health and reduce the risk for cardiovascular disease and stroke.
  • Congestive Heart Failure Congestive heart failure occurs when the heart does not pump enough oxygen to meet the body’s needs. When the heart’s pumping power decreases it can cause fatigue, shortness of breath, swelling, and other symptoms. Experts at Ogden Clinic are trained to diagnose and manage congestive heart failure.
  • Contraception Contraception or birth control is a method or device used to prevent pregnancy. These methods include IUD, Nexplanon, birth control pills, vaginal rings or injections.
  • Diabetes Treatments related to diabetes and how the body handles blood sugar.
  • Electrocardiogram (EKG) Test EKG testing is used to check the heart’s electrical activity. The test can help determine the cause of unexplained chest pain or pressure, diagnose diseases, or check the heart health of patients with existing heart conditions.
  • Ingrown Toenail Our providers can address ingrown toenails that are infected or painful.
  • Intravenous Therapy Intravenous (within-vein) is the fastest way to deliver medications throughout the body. This method is used to correct electrolyte imbalances, perform blood transfusion, or as fluid replacement for dehydration.
  • Laceration Repair Minor skin wounds such as animal bites and deep punctures can be repaired in-office. Depending on the nature/size of the laceration, our professionals will use sutures, staples, or tissue adhesives in an outpatient setting.
  • Mental Health Mental health disorders including depression and anxiety can be improved with cognitive-behavioral therapy, relaxation techniques, lifestyle coaching, and closely-monitored medication to regulate serotonin in the brain.
  • Mole Biopsy Suspicious moles should be evaluated by a medical professional who can determine if they are cancerous. During mole biopsy, all or part of the mole is removed for laboratory analysis.
  • Spirometry Test Spirometry is a test used to measure the amount of air inhaled and exhaled. This test is used to assess how well the lungs are functioning.
  • Wart Removal Painful or embarrassing warts can be removed several ways. We perform cryotherapy, chemical peels, or even minor surgery to remove warts. Medication is also effective depending on the size and type of wart.
  • Women’s Health and Wellness Women’s healthcare addresses conditions that affect a woman’s physical and emotional well-being. This includes:
    • Preventive care: Pap smears, breast and pelvic exams
    • Sexual health: Family planning, and reproductive exams, screenings and treatments
    • Heavy or irregular periods
    • Treatment of yeast infections, urinary tract infections, and other gynecological issues

Interests

Jennifer Crafton attended Marquette University for her undergraduate education. Afterward, she moved to Tucson, Arizona, and met her husband. The two started a family and moved to Utah in 2001. Jennifer fell in love with Utah and decided to stay here permanently.

Jennifer worked as a registered nurse (RN) for 25 years and returned to school when her children were seniors in high school. She completed her Master’s degree at Maryville University and became board certified as a Family Nurse Practitioner.

During her career as a nurse, she’d worked in a variety of settings including cardiology, CCU, telemetry, medical-surgical, outpatient surgery, rehabilitation, home health and hospice. As a Family Nurse Practitioner in Bountiful, Jennifer enjoys working with individuals of all ages and especially enjoys older adults and geriatrics. She loves teaching and working with individuals on prevention, wellness, and managing chronic conditions.

In her free time, Jennifer enjoys spending time with her family, reading, learning, watching movies, doing puzzles, and spending time in the mountains hiking and camping. Her dogs, chickens, and large garden also keep her busy.
