Aaron Vasquez, MD, MBA
Dr. Aaron Vazquez is a board-certified psychiatrist. He has an interest in caring for patients that are deemed “treatment-resistant” to conventional treatment. He uses an eclectic approach to care for his patients suffering severe physical and emotional pain. He enjoys helping patients recover from addiction and trauma. He uses psychotherapy, medication-assisted treatments (MAT) and ketamine in his practice. He believes that other non-ordinary treatments hold promise in mental health such as hormone therapy for Major Depressive Disorder, Psychedelics for PTSD, and cannabis for several ailments. He is focused on de-stigmatizing cannabis in Southern Utah through education and promoting safe and responsible use. Medical cannabis is legal throughout Utah and can be helpful to reduce or eliminate the use of more dangerous, traditional medication such as opioids.
