About Gordon Harmston, M.D.
Dr. Gordon Harmston is a board-certified gastroenterology and hepatology with Utah Gastroenterology. He performs routine GI procedures including upper endoscopy and colonoscopy in the diagnosis, screening, surveillance and treatment of gastrointestinal diseases and cancers. Dr. Harmston also specializes in the management of liver disease, cirrhosis, liver cancers, and liver transplant medicine. He is fluent in English and dabbles in Spanish. He is a member of the American College of Gastroenterology, the American Gastroenterological Association (AGA), the American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ASGE) and the American Association for the Study of LIver Diseases (AASLD). He is the Director of Endoscopy at Intermountain Medical Center. He is also on the adjunct faculty for the University of Utah School of Medicine. Dr. Harmston is a native Utahn and enjoys spending time with his family and enjoying the great outdoors.
Why did you choose to specialize in Gastroenterology?
Our gastrointestinal health has a huge impact on our quality of life. The spectrum of diseases found in gastroenterology and hepatology are rewarding to care for because many of the disease processes are treatable and allow the care team to have a huge impact on patient’s lives. The combination of clinical work mixed in with procedural work also keeps the job different and engaging from day to day.
Do you have a specialty of interest in Gastroenterology?
In addition to gastroenterology, I am also board certified in transplant hepatology, so I spend about 50% of my time working with liver disease patients and am intricately involved with the Intermountain Medical Center Liver Transplant program. While I certainly enjoy the challenge of caring for liver patients, I also continue to enjoy general gastroenterology.
What do you and your family enjoy doing in your spare time?
Traveling with my family is my favorite pastime. I also enjoy good food and exercise. I am a proud Utahan and enjoy the mountains and deserts of Utah. I am an avid skier and hiker and also dabble in paddle boarding and snow shoeing. At times in my life, I have tried to figure out the game of golf.
