About Mitch:

Mitch grew up right here in Sandy, Utah, near Little Cottonwood Canyon. Spending time around Utah’s gorgeous landscapes built an appreciation and affection for the state’s natural spaces. Mitch loves getting outdoors to camp, hike, ski, snowboard, visit Utah’s National Parks, and surf behind a boat whenever he has a chance.

Those experiences are improved by the presence of family. Mitch considers his family his closest friends and loves playing with his kids, reading books, woodworking, and taking weekly piano lessons from his grandmother, more than anything. It’s that love of family which brought him to pediatrics. Ask him which age or stage is his favorite and you’ll get a different answer every time.

“I find myself saying to parents of every age of kid that I see, ‘this is such a great age!’ The truth is, they’re all great ages.”

From those special first few weeks with a newborn through the emotional complexity of adolescence and the excitement of early adulthood, there’s something exciting at every stage of life and Mitch lives for families. Yours as well as his own.

Parent Feedback

I started bringing my son here as a newborn 10 years ago, now I bring my 8 month old. Everyone is amazing and they are all phenomenal. All the providers are exceptional. If our primary pediatrician can’t see us for a sick visit, they always get us in with someone else that we adore- we have never been let down. All the providers have always made me feel heard and they are great with my kids. I ALWAYS recommend Families First to my friends and any new moms.
