Jeremy Larsen, Physiatrist

Born and raised here in St. George, being a psychiatrist never crossed my radar until my first rotation in medical school. I enjoyed the interpersonal relationships that develop with patients compared to all other physician specialties and the gratification that comes with being able to play a small part in helping someone overcome mental illness and feel better about themselves. I therefore chose to become a psychiatrist and completed a 4 year psychiatry residency in Pennsylvania. I learned throughout my time in residency that mental health disorders are often influenced by substance use and therefore chose to extend my studies an additional year in Ohio to complete an Addiction Psychiatry fellowship. I worked for an inpatient hospital for several months upon graduation until moving back to St. George last year and have nearly 7 years’ experience in both the inpatient and outpatient setting.
