Our daughter Cora (3 year old) had to go under oral sedation for a tooth extraction and fillings. She saw Dr McDonald who did a fantastic job and really made it a breeze. We were very impressed!!

Met Dr. Cook at the hospital when I delivered my baby and instantly thought he was so awesome and attentive. I had my newborn see him days after we were released and then switched my other children over as well. I love the options of locations, love how they're schedule is open and accommodating even on Saturdays, love the cleanliness, love the inviting children themed rooms! Everything is great! Also, worked with a lactation specialist who was extremely helpful out of the SJ location. She was so great to with with! Definitely recommend this clinic! Grateful to have found them!

This is a great place to bring your kids for not only doctor visits, but now they do orthodontic work, glasses, and therapy. They have may wonderful doctors and nurses on their staff, however we are partial to Sheri Vlam. We have followed her for the past 15 years. Our kids have grown up with her as their #1 doctor. I have recommended her to everyone with the need for an amazing pediatrician. I highly recommend these guys. They have locations in Riverton, South Jordan, and soon to be West Jordan.

Great doctors. Great nurses. Great staff! I have a medically complex child who's care is very involved and tricky along with 2 very normal kids. Dr Peterson has been fantastic in managing it all. He is not over aggressive but not passive either. He is really smart and always seems to know the newest research. He listens to me and values my opinions and never makes me feel dumb. I can always get appointments when I need. They have the cutest rooms that make waiting easier and kids have a fun, pleasant experience. I ABSOLUTELY recommend these guys!!!
