Car Appointments

How do we take care of kids who are sick AND keep the office clean? We are very comfortable with car visits! Children are less stressed. We have mobile gear. We change into new PPE with each visit. Here's a picture of where we would see you, right outside our backdoor in the parking garage. So don't worry!

Does your child get very anxious about shots? We can do shots as a car visit: for some children, this markedly reduces their stress and makes the experience so much easier for everyone!

Get Your Flu Shots!

Book your appointment and let's get immunized. If you can't come into the office, we will also have drive-in flu clinic in our garage on Sept 19th, Sept 26th, and Oct 3 from 9 am-12 pm. Call or email our office to sign up. 
And yes, we can immunize adults at our flu clinics in September. Bring the family and your friends!

Gallagher Pediatrics

I'm a pediatrician and a mom. I know the value of convenient care and the importance of a real medical home for your family. You need to be able to have checkups, sick visits, a telephone call, a video visit, a text with your doctor, and email in one place. Gallagher Pediatrics does all of that. You need a patient portal and a 24/7 phone number to reach the doctor. We have that too. You need to have a clean office and a safe way to have your children seen post-COVID.  Gallagher Pediatrics is the place to go for clean, safe, excellent pediatric care.

Are you interested in a prenatal visit by phone? Want to meet Dr. Gallagher virtually? Do you live too far away for an easy trip to the office?  Call or email the office to talk to us. Or book a video visit here.

**If you have insurance, we'll bill them. For self-pay patients, we charge $50 per video visit.

About the Practice

The COVID-19 crisis has changed all of our plans.  The practice of medicine and caring for our families will be different now.  I am encouraged by some of the changes in medicine that we are seeing in 2020 and look forward to offering you the most up-to-date practice model. Gallagher Pediatrics will NOT be an older, traditional office with a large waiting room, sick kids in with well kids, and limited access to your doctor.

 

Gallagher Pediatrics WILL provide you with better care in a safe way in this post-COVID era. Telemedicine will be routine. You can also have a traditional visit in the office or even a car visit, depending on the needs of your family. There is no waiting room and the office is extra clean.

 

I will offer a slower pace and longer hours to prevent confusion and worry about infection and to accommodate your busy schedules.  When you're ready for your appointment, you'll notify us through your phone and we'll bring you straight in to be seen.

Why We Wear Our Masks...

Care Comes First

Meet Our Staff

Dr. Eileen Gallagher, Owner

Dr. Eileen Gallagher has been practicing medicine for twenty years and has loved all of it. The fun and challenge of pediatrics is the best: a way to help parents and families care for their children and to build a healthy community. Now a business owner, not an employee, Dr. G has a newfound appreciation for the hard work of starting your own company and being your own boss.  With the help of the great team at Gallagher Pediatrics, Dr. G wants to continue to grow as a pediatrician and share the excitement and interest of child development and health with you. 

Sarah King, RN

My name is Sarah King-Brown, BSN RN and I have worked as a registered nurse in pediatrics for 11 years. I have a wonderful husband and 4 fur babies and I love spending time with them in the great outdoors. I am passionate about nursing and healthcare and the tiny humans I get to interact with and care for every day. Working in pediatrics has been such a joy for me and I couldn't imagine doing anything else.


Allison Rhoads, Front Desk and Medical Assistant

Allie is thrilled to be back in her hometown of Park City working for Gallagher Pediatrics! She has spent years working with children as a lacrosse coach and ski coach. As an aspiring physician, her coaching experience inspired her to pursue pediatrics.

McCall Parkinson, CNA
McCall is in the nursing program at Dixie State. She helped set up the office in the summer of 2020 and will be back to join us in caring for patients when she is on break from school.  See you soon McCall!

Gallagher Pediatrics has access to the covered parking garage for your convenience and for car visits if your child is sick. When the office opens, you'll text us when you're ready and we'll bring you straight into your room at the office or see you in the car if you prefer that.

Find us at 1154 Center Drive, Suite D240.

About Dr. Gallagher

I love practicing medicine. My patients know that I care for them and will provide them with great medical advice, support them as parents, and work with them to have the healthiest and happiest family possible.

I’ve raised five children and know the highs and lows of parenting and family life.  I have also had a long career as a physician and benefited from working in a variety of settings that promote and seek excellence in the rapidly evolving practice of medicine.  Yet I have always wanted my own practice and to run my own business. Now there is clearly a need in Utah for such care. People want a doctor that knows them and provides convenient and high-quality care. I have the experience and discipline to provide all of those things.

Education and Training:

Duke University, BS in Biology and Psychology

University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, MD

UC San Francisco, residency in pediatrics and year as Chief Resident in Primary Care

Fellow, American Academy of Pediatrics

We Love Babies!

At Gallagher Pediatrics, we're happy to provide you with the extra time you need to bring in your new baby.

We will help you with virtual or in-person lactation support.

We can refer you to a variety of great lactation consultants.

You can have extra appointments for peace of mind.

You can even use the baby scale if you need it. (Just let us know in advance!)

Teens Are Terrific!

Dr. Gallagher loves to help parents and teens manage this unique phase of life.  Teens have a tough time in this post-COVID and modern world.  They benefit from a pediatrician who can work with them and collaborate with parents to help teens to live their best life. If you have concerns about your teen, you can also schedule a video visit with Dr. G or a longer appointment to discuss the details.

Telemedicine

What is Telemedicine and How does it work?

Telemedicine involves the use of electronic communications and software to provide clinical services to patients without an in-person visit. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing, telemedicine allows you and your family to get the medical care you need from the comfort and safety of your home.

School-Aged Kids Need Us

School-age children are having an especially hard time adapting to our post-COVID world.  They need a community of teachers and doctors and other adults who are watching out for them, advocating, and caring for them.  Dr. Gallagher and the Academy of Pediatrics have many resources to help you. Book a check-up every year to meet with your pediatrician and come prepared to discuss how to stay healthy, grow, and thrive.

Wow! Preschoolers!

Preschoolers are pretty amazing. They are learning new things, remarkably smart and interesting, and will wear out their loving parents each and every day. Dr. Gallagher will consult with you on toileting issues, behavioral issues, and make sure your child has normal growth and development for age.  Just book an appointment and bring your questions and concerns to the expert.

 

Insurance/ Billing

Due to processing delays from COVID, many insurances are still processing.

 

Patients can either wait until their insurance is listed OR if they would like to come and see us out-of-network, they can do so for a markedly reduced rate.  If you need an appointment before your insurance company adds us to their network, we can get your appointments done by paying cash/card with a 30% off price. Call us for questions or more info.  *In-network providers will be updated every 2-3 days on the website.
