Zak Zarbock, Pediatrics

About Zak:

Zak grew up right here in the Salt Lake valley and earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Exercise Physiology from Brigham Young University. After graduating, he was accepted to medical school at The Ohio State University, where he graduated with a Doctorate of Medicine in 2005. Residency brought him back to Utah, where he spent three years completing a pediatric speciality at the University of Utah and Primary Children’s Medical Center.

Zak completed residency in 2008, at which time he came to Families First Pediatrics and he’s been here ever since. He is board-certified in pediatrics and is a member of the American Academy of Pediatrics. He is also the founder of Zarbee’s Naturals, a company focused on bringing natural health products to children and families. You can find them at or on store shelves nationwide.

When he’s not in the office or starting a new entrepreneurial venture, Zak is busy parenting four active, and often smelly, boys. Despite their enduring odor, he loves spending time with his kids, volunteering in his community, or heading out for a day at the lake.

Parent Feedback

We started coming to family first in 2013. We moved away, but came back in 2020, and I knew exactly where to go back for my kids pediatric care. My favorite thing about Toby is that he talks to my kids. He makes them feel welcomed, important, and heard. He also takes the time with me and answers any of my crazy mom questions. Super thorough. You can’t go wrong at Family First. Whenever I had to run in with a sick kid, and Tony isn’t available, we have gotten excellent care by any of the doctors. I can’t think of ever having a bad experience.
