Mark Briesacher has been my family's pediatrician for 14 years. I love him and am so deeply saddened that I have to find another doctor for my kids as I have moved out of Utah. Even when we lived in St. George, I would schedule their doctors appointments around family visits to Salt Lake City. He is warm and kind and very skilled/knowledgable. Any child would be fortunate to be under his care.

Pros: Knowledgable, Personable, Thorough

Cons: None

I completely disagree with the review titled "Do Your Homework". Dr. B saw my daughter for 11 years and always made the right decisions. I credit him for saving my older daughter's life. She has serious health issues that she was being hospitalized for frequently and as soon as we were referred to Dr. B she was much healthier and went to the hospital much less. My daughter has Acid Reflux among other issues and he helped her not hurt her. My children had shots done in the office for years and never had problems with them. When I get shots in my leg it hurts for a few days but I never thought to make it an excuse to smear somebody's name on the internet. We have since moved to Texas and have not nor will we ever find a doctor as great as Dr. B.

Cons: NONE

My son saw Dr B for a year in 2006. I was a first time mom and didn't have a lot of experience..so when I freaked out about my newborn's weird breathing patterns..he just said..oh i thought i mentioned that was normal..NOO..he didn't. When the nurse's assistant gave my son shots which were done so poorly he couldn't crawl for 3 DAYS..the nurse just said..oh..it's just temporary. When my son started refluxing 3-4 times a day and the Dr B's nurse would just say..well, that's nothing to really worry about for 3 months..I switched doctors who diagnosed my son with acid reflux and prescribed him Prevacid so he could FINALLY start gaining weight. Yes, if you have a generally healthy children I think he would be adequate. But if you have a child with multiple issues..you might want to look around. Especially if you want to stagger your child's vaccination schedule..he is NOT open to discussion and just prescribes infant tylenol for the high fevers that my son experienced from the bad reactions for having multiple vacs at the same time..

Pros: Convenient Location

Cons: small waiting room, rude staff

Before I had my son I visited with numerous pediatricians... I virtually interviewed and screened them because I was a new mom and wanted only the best of course!
I decided on Dr. Briesacher because he is young with children of his own and I felt like I could relate to him. He is soft spoken, but serious...and honest.
He has always treated us with the highest regard and is caring with my son...even as he has aged from an infant to an 8 year old, Dr. Briesacher has adapted his communication with my son. And still treats me with the same respect.
His nurse isn't rude, I think her personality isn't warm and bubbly... she is always nice! But her direct personality could be percieved as mean... if you're overly sensitive.
I plan on having Dr. Briesacher as my son's Dr. for as long as we can. Until he's 18 at least. :)

Pros: fully attentive, gentle with infants and sweet with kids

Cons: A little far from where I live now, but worth the drive.

I've been taking all three of my children to Dr Briesacher for about 10yrs and I love him. He always takes the time to answer any questions I have with out making me feel like I'm taking up too much time. Dr. Briesacher and his nurses were very surportive of my choice to breastfeed, they offered advice and tips to make it easier on me and the baby. Going to Dr Briesacher is kind of out of the way for me but it is worth it.

We met Dr. Briesacher at LDS hospital when my son was born, 9yrs. ago, he has been our Dr. for both children since. He is very knowledgeable and always takes the time to answer our questions. My son has asthma, Dr. Briesacher trusts me as a mother he listens to whats going on with my child so needless visits are not required. If your a parent who wants to work with your doctor this it the clinic for you!!!

Pros: Great at call backs! His nurse almost always takes my calls or returns them quickly!

Cons: He has to have days off. Ha Ha He is a bit out of the way for us, but worth it.

I was not very happy with the doctor either. His nurse was always very curt and very seemed concerned. If you are breastfeeding, this is not the doctor for you. He will recommend formula when he feels a child needs to put on weight.

Dr. B was our pediatrician for 7 years, and he's the BEST! We completely disagree with the comments above--his nurse, Diane, couldn't be nicer or more responsive. You can always talk to someone when you need to. HIGHLY recommeneded--without a doubt the best doctor we've ever had.

MY SON USED THIS PEDIATRICIAN FOR ABOUT SIX MONTHS. GREAT DOCTOR BUT EXTREMELY RUDE STAFF. DON'T RETURN PHONE CALLS WELL AND HIS NURSE WAS NOT VERY PLEASANT. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND HIM JUST FOR THIS REASON. ALOT OF TIMES YOU WORK MORE WITH THE NURSES, ETC. THEN THE DOCTOR.
