Chad M. Francom, PA-C
After graduating from the University of Utah my wife and I relocated to the Elko area. My wife Jennifer and I have two children, Makell and Josh. Some of our most enjoyable time is spent with our 2 little grandchildren. When not with our family we enjoy camping and fishing, as well as traveling to warm destinations.
I have been a Firefighter/Paramedic for 15 years now and still spend time each month working for a community in Utah.
Throughout my time in EMS and most recently practicing in family medicine, I have truly enjoyed my time with the pediatric community. Seeing healthy happy smiling faces is what gets me to work each day. I am excited to be a part of Slothower Pediatrics for many years to come.

Hi, my name is Rachel Cluff. I have a family of 4 & more. My husband and two children and pets. The kids keep us busy with sports. We enjoy spending time as a family adventuring in the outdoors and traveling.
After obtaining my first healthcare degree about 8 years ago, I was welcomed to a small family owned clinic in Lehi, UT. Not only did I learn everyday healthcare practices, but how compassion, kindness as selfless care positively impacts those you are serving. I wouldn’t be the Medical Assistant I am today without this experience, thanks Doc!
