Hello, I’m Genevieve Utley. I live in South Minneapolis and I am a nurse practitioner.

I enjoy working with all of my patients, from pediatrics & adolescents to adults and elders. My approach is holistic and patient-centered. I’m open-minded and collaborative. I believe that mental health and physical health are one in the same and I treat both.

Justin Golden - Richfield Medical Group

Justin Golden M.D.

Justin Golden grew up in a small town on the south shore of Massachusetts. He received his bachelor’s degree from Harvard University and then attended Boston University School of Medicine. He completed his family medicine residency at the University of Minnesota St. John’s Hospital program in St. Paul, MN. He was previously practicing at an independent clinic in his home town before moving back to the Twin Cities. He and his wife, Becky, are excited to be back in Minnesota near her family where their three young children can grow up with their cousins. He believes deeply in the values of family practice and is honored to have the opportunity to provide the full spectrum of care to patients throughout their life. He has particular interests in sports medicine, pediatrics, procedures and preventative care. Justin loves to spend as much time with his family as possible, but when they need a break from him he enjoys running the lakes, checking out restaurants and coffee shops, and pretending he is a mediocre fly fisherman. He is so grateful to have an opportunity to work in a patient-centered clinic where he can develop meaningful, long-lasting relationships with people while working together to achieve their health goals.
