The best follow up that I have experienced from a doctor
in Salt Lake City, UT |
Dr. Child was amaizing! With "white coat" anxiety it is very stressful for me to actually make my doctor appointments. I was so nervousness waiting for him to enter the exam room for my first visit. My blood pressure was off the charts. He calmed me down within the first 5 minutes and the exam went very well. The asthma medication he suggested worked perfectly. I feel like my fear of going to the doctors office is over thanks to Dr. Child. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM! J. Jelosek

When it comes to Sports Medicine, Dr. Child is the best! He has helped me with many tendinitis issues and helped my son recover from a concussion. His knowledge in medicine is excellent and refers appropriately when needed. He presents the facts and gives options allowing the patient to be an active part of the decision making process.

We took our son to see Dr. Child and he was so personable and kind. He really listened and was genuinely interested in making sure our son got the shots and the help he needed for his church mission in Ecuador. We appreciated the time he took with us - he didn't seem rushed at all. Dr. Child is professional and we would highly recommend him to anyone.

Dr. Child truly cares about his patients. He never makes you feel that he is in a hurry when he is with you. He explains everything so you can understand and is so willing to answer any questions. My family was leaving for Washington D.C. when my son got sick. Dr. Child stayed late just to meet with us. He took the time to thoroughly check my son and prescribed the medications we needed. He told me to call anytime if we needed anything while we were gone. I would highly recommend Dr. Child.

Dustin will always be my doctor. I have used him for years! I've never had a more caring doctor who actually really cares about his patients. But he actually saved me from having a heart attack and possible stroke. I owe my life to this guy!

Dr. Child is so personable and knowledgeable. He diagnosed my son's strabismus of his right eye after several doctor's had told us not to worry about it. We were able to see a specialist and have surgery that fixed it completely. He is willing to listen and answer questions about anything. I would highly recommend him to any family who is looking for a wonderful family doctor.

Dr. Child has been my primary care physician for a decade and I couldn't be happier. Each appointment is prompt without waiting.

I recently had acute stomach flu. I had been ill for several days. Dr. Child seemed to know precisely what to prescribe. I was so grateful that the medication helped. I appreciated his professionalism.
in Kaysville, UT |
I was very hesitant about finding a new doctor when I moved to a new area. I am very glad that I started seeing Dr. Child, he is very friendly and know a lot. I feel comfortable when I come in to see him, not like with some doctors where they make you feel like it's an inconvenience for them to see you. My kids like coming to see him too.

Dr. Child is awesome. Our whole family has seen him, myself, my husband and our 2 boys. He is great with kids, patient, friendly and fun. He explains whatever the condition is very well, how to treat it and how to not spread it. He treats you like a person, and shows that he cares, not like you are just another patient or number.

Dr. Child is an excellent doctor! He has been taking care of me and my family for years. I called and was seen the same day. He listened to all my concerns. He was patient. I had plantar fasciitis, and he helped me get better so I could run my marathon. He took great care of me.
Salt Lake City, UT |
My husband and I have been seeing Dr. Child for years. He has been most attentive and caring. Also, my father chose Dr. Child when his physician retired. Dad had dementia and prostate cancer which eventually took his life. I appreciated Dr. Child's attention to Dad even visiting him in his home a couple of times. We travel from Salt Lake to see him and tell all our friends that it is worth the short drive. We are grateful that we have selected Dr. Child as our family doctor.

He was my doc & I had seen him many times, I came to his office 7 Days after a major leg ankle fusion surgery, had huge leg wrap, using wheelchair & walker, not even in cast yet till swelling went down & other foot was damaged. When he came in he did not ask or say one word about my leg, not one single word. I came there because of bladder infection & after the test he came back to exam room & said yep, you sure do have an infection, wrote prescription said bye. What kind of Doc would do that?

Dr. Child says...

I love caring for and treating patients at the Tanner Clinic in Kaysville. We treat all our patients with compassion, courtesy, and respect. Family Medicine lets me get to know and treat entire families and friends. I listen closely to my patient's concerns. I try to treat each patient like family and give you the best care possible. We always have same day openings. I love treating athletes and see them return to whatever sport they love. I also enjoy helping patients lose weight. They feel so much better and have such a feeling of accomplishment. Even when they have tried other ways to lose weight, we've been effective in finally getting the weight off and living healthier lifestyle. I love to see pediatric patients, both for well child checks and acute problems. Of course I also see the full range of family medicine; including diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, thyroid, acute illness, and many others. I would love to see you here at the Tanner Clinic in Kaysville.
