In 2001, Doctors’ Cox and Johnson and Dallen Ormond hatched a plan to start their own pediatric office and Families First Pediatrics opened its doors in October of that year. Dr. Cox is board certified in pediatrics and is a fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics. He enjoys seeing patients from birth to 20 years old and feels particularly humbled (and old) when those former patients bring in kids of their own. He has a special interest in the greatest medical advance of the modern era, vaccination. His wife is a Neonatologist with The University of Utah and Intermountain and they have 3 adult daughters. In his spare time, he enjoys ice hockey, snowboarding, hiking, mountain biking, and recovering from injuries sustained from these activities. He also enjoys spending time with his family, traveling and is a self-proclaimed music geek.
