He is responsible for teaching Clinical and Behavioral Aspects of Occupational Injuries and Disease (OEHS 6703-001). His teaching and training not only involves residents in a classroom, but also extends to his work within the Occupational Medicine Clinics, and WCF Insurance (the state of Utah’s largest Worker’s Compensation insurer) where he is a physician reviewer.

Additionally, he provides residents with training and experience in performing physician reviews addressing the utilization of resources, as well as determining the work relatedness of specific injuries or illnesses.

    Listened to what I said without just giving me a clinical answer. He heard what I said and responded with something that would be appropriate for my circumstance

    I saw Dr. Phillips for maybe 5 minutes total during my visit and in that time he talked to me in a condescending way and treated me with a lack of respect when him and his resident asked me if I had any questions as they were walking towards the door to leave. Additionally, the resident under the supervision of Dr. Phillips didnt seem to know anything and was consistently asking me medical questions, medical questions that should be basic to anyone who is studying to become a doctor.
