Great pediatrician! We've seen Dr. Paxton for 11 years and he's fantastic. I feel like he cares about our family and will spend extra time when needed to help my children.

Dr. Paxton is an informative, kind and patient pediatrician. My kids absolutely love him and get so excited to go in and see him and his assistants....really, I think that says a world about Dr. Paxton! What kids aging 15 years to 6 months do that? He has such a kind bedside manner and peaceful happy demeanor. We absolutely think the world of him!

Dr Paxton is AWESOME I always leave his office feeling confident, positive and assured about my babies health. I could never switch to someone else. The most amazing man and most caring guy ever!
in Cedar Hills, UT |
I have had 2 preemies, and I have loved having Dr. Paxton as our pediatrician. He is great at listening to my concerns while still telling me what I need to hear. My kids both enjoy going to see him. He is very likeable and knowledgeable. Even though we have moved farther away, we still decided to keep him as our pediatrician.

Dr. Paxton has been our pediatrician through four of our children, including one with special needs. He goes above and beyond as a physician. He listens and never rushes you out the door. He is available whenever questions arise and has gone out of his way multiple times to make sure we had the care we needed. He was always up-to-date with our son's records and treats the children like they're the most important people in the world, which they love, and helps them feel at ease. He's amazing
in Eagle Mountain, UT |
Dr Paxton and his staff are beyond exceptional! He is great with my kids, patient and is great at listening to my concerns. He knows that me as a mom, knows my child the best. He takes that into consideration when treating. His nurses are so nice and inviting! They make you feel like family! I've never had a problem getting last minute appointments! I highly recommend him!
