Heather George, PA-C, is a certified physician assistant specializing in family medicine. She completed her training and master’s degree at the University of Utah Physician Assistant Program. In October 2012 she joined University of Utah Health Care as a stroke rehabilitation provider. There she was able to integrate her previous experience as a physical therapist assistant in neurorehabilitation with treating patients medically as PA. Although difficult to leave such a rewarding position, in 2013 she transferred to the Stansbury Health Center as a Family Medicine provider to serve patients in the community where she grew up and lives. There, she enjoys caring for patients and counseling them in how to reduce their risk for cardiovascular events such as stroke.
Currently, she serves on the Tooele County Health Department Live Fit Coalition. Her professional interests include preventive medicine, obesity management, and treatment of musculoskeletal disorders. She performs a variety of procedures from simple skin lesion removal to large joint steroid injections. She emphasizes physical activity and good nutrition to patients whether recovering from stroke or simply working to live a healthier lifestyle.
In her free time, Heather enjoys spending time with her husband and children playing sports, watching movies, baking and participating in triathlons. She is currently training for a half ironman triathlon.
“For me, exercise is medicine. I believe that in order to improve the health and wellbeing of this nation, we need to promote regular physical activity in addition to any traditional medical management.”

With Heather I felt as if she saw what I was going through but all she said was try some allergy medicine when I had explained to the medical assistant that allergy medication did not do much. I am glad I tried another doctor for my follow up who gave me the exact reasoning and tried to help more.UofU Patient November 20, 2013

Ms. George is an outstanding addition to the U0fU Clinic in Stansbury Park. So glad you brought her on board!UofU Patient October 07, 2013
This was my first time seeing Heather George and I thought she was great and will use her in the futureUofU Patient October 03, 2013
Heather George is quite possibly the most sincerely empathetic healthcare provider I have had throughout my entire adult life! She's been blessed with this empathetic nature and takes it one step beyond...she takes the time to discuss possible causes, not just symptom management. I highly recommend her.UofU Patient September 02, 2013
Heather took wonderful care of me. Plan on having her be my regular doctor/ pa.UofU Patient August 26, 2013
Very informative and information was geared to my age which was really nice!UofU Patient August 12, 2013
I was very happy with Heather. I have been moving from doctor to doctor because either the doctor is too arrogant to explain things, too busy to take the time to listen, or the clinic is not adequately staffed to meet my needs. Heather took the time to address my needs, asked many questions about my needs, and spent time with me with out being rushed. The clinic is well-staffed and well-equipped. I didn't have any major issues but needed to established a relationship with the clinic and get prescriptions refilled.
