This is Chris Redgrave for Zions Bank Speaking on Business.

Allie Blazzard always wanted to do something to help people. And now, thanks to her work at Riverside Medical Arts, she's doing exactly that. Through bio-identical hormone therapy, she's helping women restore balance to their lives. She's also worked with patients who've lost a life-changing amount of weight and says there's nothing like it.

This is the type of work they do at Riverside Medical Arts with the team of Allie and Doctors Ben, Grant and Gayle Carter. Ben Carter is an exceptional dermatologist, while Doctors Grant and Gayle Carter have been practicing together since they graduated from med school ... In fact, Gayle Carter has his own story to tell.

Gayle was involved in an accident where he lost part of the fingers on his right hand .... They were sewn back and are still completely functional .... Grant Carter is the only surgeon in Southern Utah certified to perform the Quick Lift Face Lift, having been trained by the procedure's creator ….This is an amazing advantage….

Ben Carter's impressive medical background includes receiving his doctorate from the Medical College of Wisconsin..... His specialty training includes pediatric skin conditions along with adult skin conditions and diseases as complex as lupus.

As for the Allie, she's a nurse practitioner with a master's degree in nursing...In 2007, she decided to do something more to help people.... That's when she created a medical spa where they specialized in injectibles.... She would run the spa — and asked her husband, Andy, to run the business side of the operation.

They started small — very small.....But, over time, they built the practice and developed a strong base of customers — so strong, that when a brand new medical partnership was forming in St. George, they became part of it....That's how Riverside Medical Arts was born in June 2012... Riverside Medical Arts is located in a 10,000 square foot building on Riverside Drive in St. George.
