Get To Know Your Provider

Dr. James Potter, Board Certified Anesthesiologist and fellowship-trained Interventional Pain Management Specialist, is very excited to return to rural Utah to practice medicine. Dr. Potter grew up in Price, Utah, but since graduating from SUU, he and his wife and children lived in northern Missouri, around the Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas area, then in Clearwater, Florida. While they enjoyed their adventures in each of those areas of the country, they are happy to be back in beautiful, unique Utah.

Dr. Potter’s initial training is in anesthesiology, including surgery, obstetrics, airway management, and perioperative pain management. After practicing anesthesiology for several years, he had the opportunity to further his pain management skills through a fellowship. He loves getting to know patients in a clinical setting and helping them find relief from their acute or chronic pain—from neck and back to arthritis and spinal stenosis, from cancer pain to headaches and sports injuries. To manage the pain relief of patients, Dr. Potter offers radio frequency ablations, epidurals, spinal cord stimulators, and other interventional procedures, as well as ultrasound-guided in-office injections and oral medications.

When he’s not seeing patients, Dr. Potter enjoys biking, running, fishing, boating, skiing, traveling just about anywhere, and mostly being with his wife and four children.

Services offered:

  • Chronic & Accute Pain Care
  • Medication Management
  • Medial Brach Blocks & Radio Frequency Ablations
  • Epidurals
  • Ultrasound Guided Joint Injections
  • Ultrasound Guided Trigger Point Injections
  • Spinal Chord Stimulators





    Dr. James Potter defines pain and it’s origins in the human body. He also describes some of the many treatment options he offers to patients at Uintah Basin Healthcare.

    Osteoarthritis occurs when the joint tissue between bones wears down. This leads to pain in the joints. Dr. James Potter, MD has many treatment options available to help manage pain from osteoarthritis at Uintah Basin Healthcare. Radio Frequency ablation is one of those treatments offered.

    Sometimes called a pinched nerve, radiculopathy is the medical definition for an injury or damage to nerve roots in the area where they leave the spine. Many treatment options for the condition are available at Dr. James Potter’s office, which are detailed in the video.
