From a young age, M’Lindsey Romero knew she wanted to be a doctor. She experienced childhood health problems including asthma and ligamentous laxity (when your ankles roll easily, and your knees dislocate in a stiff breeze) which made it difficult to play sports or engage in play with other kids. She’s experienced firsthand the impact healthcare professionals can make through ordinary care during life’s big moments.
Dr. Romero grew up right here in Utah and earned a bachelor’s degree in nutrition and physical fitness from the University of Utah in 2009. Her studies then took her to Nevada’s Touro University where she earned a Doctor of Osteopathy degree in 2016, followed by a residency at Loma Linda Children’s Hospital in California, before coming back to Utah.
In Dr. Romero’s office, kids are treated like people but allowed to be kids. Kids aren’t “mini adults” but they are full people with a stake in their own healthcare. Dr. Romero’s goal is to work with kids and parents to achieve the best health outcomes through teamwork, open communication, and fun!
Dr. Romero was intrigued by the history and culture of Egypt as a child and even learned how to write with hieroglyphics. While it’s not a skill she still has, she would love to travel to Egypt someday.
