Dr. Box thank you for straight with me and telling me out right what I need to do to improve my health and quality of life. I have given up wheat products and I am working towards a healthier life. Good bye fatty liver and onto a healthier me. I loved your comment "I want you to eat less and move more". That is my new quote for the day. Thank you for your caring and concerned interest in me as a person and not just a patient. You Rock!!!

February 08, 2014

I am very appreciative of the fact that the Doctors didn't sugar-coat the seriousness of my disease, telling me very bluntly what I could expect, what I had to do before proceeding with the course of treatment and what my prognosis was without treatment.

Dr.Box has always treated us like we are his only patients when we come in and that is refreshing!

Academic Bio

Dr. Terry Box is an Associate Professor of Medicine at the University of Utah, where he joined the faculty in 2009 after a very successful career in hepatology and liver transplantation at the LDS Hospital in Salt Lake City from 1983 to 2009.

Dr. Box obtained an undergraduate degree in mathematics from the University of Texas at Austin and obtained his medical degree from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School in Dallas. He completed his Residency in Internal Medicine in 1981 and Fellowship in Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition at the University of Utah in 1983.

At the University of Utah, as a member of the Liver Transplant Program, he continues his duties in the clinical care of patients with liver disease both before and after liver transplantation.

Since 1995, he has been actively involved in clinical research in the areas of chronic viral Hepatitis B and C and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease as well as Transplant Hepatology. He has had related abstracts accepted at AASLD and EASL and has had publications in peer reviewed and other publications. Currently, he is principal investigator of 10 active clinical trials and a sub-investigator on others with colleagues in the University Hepatology group. He has been an invited speaker for national and international seminars, congresses and educational events in the disciplines of hepatology and liver transplant and has served on national committees that oversee liver transplant programs in the United States.

As a Transplant Hepatologist, he has a rather unique perspective, having been the recipient of a liver transplant in October 2002.
