About Toby:

Dr. Matthew “Toby” Cox grew up in Newtown, Connecticut. He received his undergraduate degree in Biochemistry at Colby College in Maine. From there he headed west and graduated in 1995 with his M.D. from St. Louis University. He completed a three year pediatrics residency at Northwestern University in Chicago. In 1998, he headed to Utah where he worked in private practice in Layton and completed a Masters in Public Health at the University of Utah. 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.
