Layton Pediatrician

James Fennell, M.D.

About James:

Dr. Fennell was raised in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, but now calls Utah his home. He received his Medical Degree from the East Carolina University Brody School of Medicine; and did his Pediatric Training at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern North Carolina (now Maynard’s Children Hospital) where he served his final year as Chief Resident. He considers his time serving the children of Eastern North Carolina as being some of the most challenging and rewarding of his Life.

While doing a 3rd Year Sub-Internship at Primary Children’s Hospital in Salt Lake City; he fell in love with the people of the Beehive State, and knew that this was where he ultimately wanted to Practice.

Dr. Fennell enjoys good friends, good laughs, good music (especially “Old School” R&B), Science Fiction and College Football…and as the office can attest…Loves the Christmas Holidays with a Passion…(as he ignores the groans in the Office when he insist on listening to the Christmas sounds of Nat King Cole, Michael Buble, and “The Carpenters”…in JUNE!) Ultimately his greatest Joy comes from the Love he receives from both the Parents and their kids

Parent Feedback

We love Wee Care. This weekend just solidified that love. My daughter had not been feeling well and then got worse very quickly. We made a Saturday evening appointment and got Carina Schneiders, PA-C. She was AMAZING. She was so thorough and kind. She listened and went above and beyond to help my daughter feel better. I was beyond impressed! The whole staff was amazing and made a huge difference in my daughter feeling better. Thank you!!!!!
