Dr. Judy Gooch moved from Michigan to Salt Lake City in 1986, when she began working at the University of Utah. She achieved the position of Full Clinical Professor in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at the University of Utah School of Medicine and was Medical Director of Primary Children’s Medical Center Rehabilitation Service, Utah. In 2012 she began the private practice Utah Neuro Rehabilitation, a center for the management of children and adults with neurologic conditions. She has published many articles on rehabilitation topics and has been invited to give national and international lectures on the care of people with neurologic conditions.

Her patients include children and adults, many of whom have been her patients since infancy. For the past 30 years, she has managed hundreds of children and adults with neurologic and musculoskeletal conditions. Her goal is to help people with neurologic conditions improve function using brain plasticity.

Craig Kantack, Monika Jarzmik, & K’Lynda Snarr coordinate care on all patients with Dr. Gooch. They are well-trained in all aspects of physical medicine and sports/spine care and allows us to provide quality musculoskeletal care to a greater number of patients in southeastern Idaho.
