I have worked with a number of cannabis patients cared for by Dr Justin Watkins DO. He is a QMP who recommends cannabis and other alternative treatments to his patients. He has a Fellowship in the Academy of Wilderness Medicine and worked as a ski patroller. He enjoys spending time in the mountains…skiing, snowboarding, mountain biking and hiking. He lives in Ogden with his wife and three young children. You can find Dr Watkins in Brigham City at the Medical Arts Center Clinic where he specializes in family medicine, chronic pain, obesity and addiction. He also recently opened up a unique clinic in Ogden named TruHealth.
His philosophy at TruHealth is the body is treated as a whole. Nature is central in healing, and pharmaceuticals are reserved only for cases of necessity. Dr Watkins believes prevention and lifestyle are the keys to vitality. TruHealth is unique in that they offer something called direct primary care. Patients pay $75 per month in exchange for unlimited appointments with their primary care provider. By designing a clinic without insurance involvement, Dr Watkins is able to offer his services at a much lower price. This clinic design is a refreshing alternative to those of us who are uninsured or underinsured.
