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.
  • Chronic Fatigue

    Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is a disorder characterized by extreme fatigue or exhaustion. This fatigue does not go away with sleep and cannot always be explained by an underlying medical condition, though chronic fatigue has been linked to and metabolic syndrome.

  • 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.
  • Depression Depression is a common but serious mood disorder that can affect how you feel, think, and handle daily activities. Depression often manifests as a persistent sad, anxious, or “empty” mood. Left untreated, it can adversely affect your eating and sleeping habits, as well as your relationships and your ability to work.
  • 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.
  • Joint Injections Also known as intra-articular injections (steroid or other medication) that is injected into a joint to treat inflammatory joint conditions (arthritis, tendinitis, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, etc.).
  • 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.
  • Lesion Removal Large lesions or lesions in sensitive areas can be removed surgically with local numbing. For minor lesions such as warts, Ogden Clinic specialists can extract them with liquid nitrogen (cryotherapy) or salicylic acid.
  • 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.
  • Pulmonary Aspiration A pulmonary aspiration occurs when foreign objects (liquids, food, vomit, saliva) enter the lungs. Treatment includes following the therapies recommended by your Ogden Clinic healthcare professional, including possibly undergoing a swallowing study.
  • 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.
  • Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) Urinary tract infections occur when bacteria, usually from the skin or rectum, enter the urethra and infect the urinary tract.
  • 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.
  • Well Child Checkups The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) developed a set of comprehensive health guidelines for well-child care that are conducted during well child checkups. These routine visits include growth and development monitoring, preventative care, and vaccinations if needed.

Interests

When he was 12, Eric Johnson moved from the cultural core of Appalachia in Southwest Virginia to Logan, Utah. He lived in Logan until he went to P.A. school at age 30. He completed his education at Utah State University and University of Des Moines. Prior to working in family practice, Eric worked in Ogden Clinic Rheumatology with Dr. Harold Vonk for a year and a half. Arthritis is still one of his clinical interests, along with weight management and weight loss.

Eric’s current passions include spending as much time as possible in the Tetons, Uintahs, or Wind Rivers in the summer. On August 18th, 2019, he completed his 2000th mile on foot in the Wind Rivers with his two sons. In the winters of 2016 and 2019, he completed the 1000-mile Northern and Southern Routes respectively on the Iditarod Trail in less than 30 days, pulling his survival gear on a sled. Eric became the 6th person in the world with two or more such finishes. See the video below for a recap of his 2016 Iditarod on Fox News. In addition to those 2000 miles, Eric has completed 71 100-mile races on foot, beginning in 1992.
