Are your doctors pediatricians or general practitioners?

All our doctors are Board Certified Pediatricians, which means they specialize in children’s health and have an additional 30 months of training in child health issues beyond a Family Practice physician. Not only are Pediatricians passionate about working with kids, they are specially trained to understand their unique medical and developmental needs.

Can I call to ask a medical question?

Yes, of course you can call to ask a medical question. We insist. We want you to call whenever you have a question or health care need. Calling us will not cost you anything and we can direct you to the most appropriate venue for the care of your child. While we can’t diagnose or write prescriptions over the phone, we can provide advice on the right care, whether that means treatment at home or being seen by a professional.

Do you see newborns? If so, at what ages?

We absolutely see newborns. Many Utah Valley Pediatrics doctors also serve in area hospitals and are the first Pediatricians to care for thousands babies born in Utah County every year. The recommended visit schedule according to the American Academy of Pediatrics is at 3-5 days, 2 weeks, 2 months, 4 months, 6 months, 9-10 months and at 12-15 months. The reasons for these times are closely related to developmental milestones and their proximity to the recommended immunization schedule for infants. If you have a newborn or are expecting one and haven’t selected a pediatrician, call us at: (801) 922-5200. We can help you select the right office and Pediatrician for your baby.

Do you offer free vaccines?

Insurance plans are required by law to cover vaccines, but co-op plans like Liberty Share or Medi-Share are not. We also offer vaccines via the Vaccines For Children (VFC) program. This federally funded program offers free-of-charge vaccines for kids who might not receive them because of inability to pay. Learn more about eligibility for VFC here.
