Dr. Mark Oveson was born and raised in Provo, Utah by parents that taught
him to love serving others and hard work. He served a 2-year Spanish speaking
mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Anaheim,
California where he gained a deep affection for the Latin American people.
He graduated from Brigham Young University with a degree in Zoology and
a minor in Chemistry. He continued his studies at BYU to earn a Master’s
Degree in Mammalogy and Wildlife Ecology. He enjoyed the many hours of
outdoorsman activities afforded by his course of study, employment for
the Division of Wildlife Resources, and employment determining coal mines’
environmental impact on mammals. His research brought him particularly
up-close and personal with porcupines and owls.
After many years at BYU, Dr. Oveson learned to like red as he earned his
M.D. degree at the University of Utah. He did his Family Practice residency
at McKay Dee hospital in Ogden. Preferring a more rural setting for his
medical practice, he moved to Nephi over 28 years ago. He enjoys the variety
of serving the health needs of entire families, age 0 to 100. Indeed,
he provides care for multiple generations within families. After over
25 years in his Nephi based practice, Dr. Oveson accepted an attractive
proposal to move his office to the expanding Fountain Green Clinic. He
enjoys serving the people of Fountain Green and the surrounding rural
communities, both his long time patients and his new patients.
Dr. Oveson and his wife Inger have raised 4 children in an idyllic rural
setting. He loves his family, horses, hunting and is an avid outdoorsman.
He finds joy in serving in the LDS church and the Boy Scout program.
Dr. Oveson is especially qualified to help his diabetic patients, being
a lifelong diabetic himself. Other areas of experience and interest include
obstetrics and pediatrics. He loves children and they love him. His continuing
philosophy of medicine is being an instrument in the hands of the Master
Healer to help those in need.
