Building Relationships With Those He Cares For

Dr. Brett Burtenshaw of the Tanner Clinic in Syracuse, Utah, has wanted to be a physician ever since he was a child. He was inspired to pursue medicine by a father who was a science teacher and a mother who worked in a doctor’s office, where he was able to spend lots of time shadowing doctors.

Native to Blanding, Utah, Dr. Burtenshaw attended Weber State University and then earned his medical degree at the Ross University School of Medicine.

Keeping with current trends in the medical field, Dr. Burtenshaw said, “I like the way Tanner is run and physician-owned, which allows us to be in charge of our own practice. There’s less red tape for our patients, and all specialties are available.”

As a community-minded MD, you’ll often find Dr. Burtenshaw taking shifts at Syracuse High School football games and at the Davis County Free Clinic in Clearfield, Utah, where uninsured or underinsured individuals can get things like office visits and prescriptions.

Among his favorite things about doctoring in Northern Utah are “the relationships we make with the people we’ve taken care of over the last seven years.”
