Hi! I'm Dr. Daniel Egan, Medical Director of Alpine Family Medicine. I really enjoy helping my patients improve their health. I practice the full-range of Family Medicine and I'm Board Certified in Family Medicine. I have a particular interest in nutrition, thyroid disorders, mental health, and urgent care.  I love working with our staff and my medical assistant, Amberly Fish, who's worked side by side with me for nearly 20 years. I also love supervising, and learning from, our stellar Physician Associates here at Alpine Family Medicine, Nicole Wigton, PA-C and Heather Leishman, PA-C. They are smart, talented, caring people. I believe it takes great people and a great work culture to deliver the highest quality medical care and we strive for that at Alpine Family Medicine.

My wife Kristin and I have eight children, five of whom we adopted from Haiti. I've enjoyed doing humanitarian work in Haiti over the past 20 years. I speak Spanish and I'm improving in Haitian Creole. I also enjoy composing music, writing, mountain biking, and challenging my kids to Pickle Ball grudge matches.

Hello current and future patients of Alpine Family Medicine! I'm Nicole Wigton, a nationally certified Physician Associate that has been part of Alpine Family Medicine since 2010. I have worked in Emergency Medicine in a Level II trauma center in Milwaukee, WI and also with an OB-GYN practice in Geneva, IL. I eventually found my way into family medicine after moving to Utah. What I love most about Alpine Family Medicine are the relationships with our patients and the wide variety of health concerns we are able to treat. I continue to enjoy treating urgent care and women's health issues and I have extra training in cosmetic injections such as Botox and fillers.

I am a Wisconsin native but relocated to Utah in 2007. I have been happily married since 2002, have three very active boys, and two fur babies. My husband and I are very involved in our boys' academic and athletic pursuits and we can often be found attending athletic events or volunteering at school. In my free time, I enjoy doing home improvement projects, traveling, listening to true crime podcasts, and being in the great outdoors in any capacity with family and friends.

Hi! I’m Heather Leishman. I’ve been a Physician Associate at Alpine Family Medicine since 2013 and enjoy the individualized, caring relationships I’ve been able to cultivate with my patients. Born and raised in Portland, OR, I traded rain and evergreens for sunshine and beaches while earning my Bachelors of Science degree from California State University, Los Angeles. After moving to Utah for PA school, I fell in love with its mountain landscapes and outdoor culture.

 

I graduated from the highly ranked University of Utah Physician Associate Program and I am a nationally certified Physician Associate. I'm passionate about improving my patient's health. I specialize in managing anxiety and depression, obesity, skin issues, and women’s health. I have extra training and expertise in bio-identical hormone replacement therapy and pain management, including medical cannabis, but I love all aspects of family medicine. 

 

My Training:

  • Bachelor's Degree in Sociology from California State University, Los Angeles

  • Master's of Physician Assistant Studies from the University of Utah

  • Nationally Certified Physician Associate

I enjoy spending my free time with family, including my husband, two active sons, a sweet toddler daughter, a bird, a dog, 2 cats, 2 hermit crabs and probably more to come. I also enjoy playing games, traveling, audio books, Netflix binges, hiking, and anything outdoors.
