About

Bio

We have a Pediatric clinic that is "small enough to care." We are the second highest rated clinic by patients surveyed in the State of Utah by SelectHealth. We have tried to create a clinic where patients get care from a Board Certified Pediatrician and Adolescent Medicine specialist, and get to see the same doctor each visit. We are based on a concierge style of private practice. That is where patients can speak to their doctor any time of the day or night, 24/7.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
