My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My approach to primary care is to provide education to help my patients make informed choices about their health. Our medical journey together will be one of shared decision making. My role is to help you set and achieve goals that allow you to function and feel at your best. And if you experience illness or disease, I will be there to help navigate a treatment plan.  As your primary care physician, I believe my job is to help care for you, as well as to coordinate, facilitate and sometimes translate medical care on your behalf. 

I have practiced primary care medicine in Salt Lake City for the last 20 years. I am board certified in both internal medicine and geriatrics. I currently maintain an adjunct faculty position with the University of Utah School of Medicine. My primary focus has been on care for older patients, and I have been voted Best Geriatrics Doctor in City Weekly magazine for the last three years. I am now opening my practice to adults of all ages and hope to share my knowledge of the aging process with a younger generation of patients to help anticipate and avoid pitfalls that occur in later years. And of course, I will continue to provide comprehensive, goal-oriented care to those of my patients who have already entered their senior years. 

Having unrushed time with patients is essential to caring for you in the personalized, proactive manner you deserve. As an MDVIP-affiliated doctor, I will have time, resources and MDVIP’s support to help improve your health through all stages of your life.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Schlisman

from Gary in UT March 29, 2023 for Alison Schlisman, MD

Through a bit of serendipity, Dr. Schlisman became our family doctor and it was the luckiest thing that has ever happen to us. She is by far the most caring and competent physician we have ever had. Even through the pandemic, we knew that Alison had our back if we ever needed medical help. It is remarkably comforting to know that if you need help, your doctor and supporting staff is there for… See more
