G.J. Willden, M.D.

Dr. G.J. Willden grew up in the Gunnison Valley. He graduated from Snow College; then continued his undergraduate education at the University of Utah where he completed his Bachelor’s degree in Biology. He graduated from the University of Utah School of Medicine in 2004. He subsequently completed a Family Medicine residency at McKay-Dee Hospital in Ogden, Utah before returning to the Gunnison Valley in 2007 to begin his medical practice.

For the past 11 years, Dr. Willden has served exclusively in the emergency department (ER) at the hospital. While you may still see him in the ER, he’s looking forward to spending more of his time at Gunnison Valley Wellness & Family Practice, helping his friends and neighbors, of all ages, get proper health check-ups and make lifestyle changes to help them live healthy and happy lives. His family practice includes everything from annual checkups, sick visits, immunizations, and broken bones to urgent care and preventive medicine.

When not treating patients, Dr. Willden enjoys spending time with his wife, Emily, and their four children, working on his father’s farm, and living an active lifestyle.
