Rachel B. Hobbs, MD


Dr. Rachel Hobbs returned to her hometown, where in elementary school she’d dreamed of being a doctor, in the role of family physician to help and treat her neighbors and community members.

Dr. Hobbs, who grew up in Roy and now lives in nearby Syracuse, joined Tanner Clinic in 2004 where she enjoys building relationships with her patients.

Dr. Hobbs began her college education at Utah State University in Logan, Utah. There the honor student received a B.S. in Public Health with an emphasis on industrial hygiene.

Before entering medical school, Dr. Hobbs used her undergraduate degree at Autoliv, where she was responsible for employee safety related to chemicals.

She earned her M.D. from the University of Utah School of Medicine and completed her residency in the McKay-Dee Family Medicine Residency program.

The board-certified physician now focuses on family wellness, managing chronic illnesses and general children’s care, as well as urgent care.

Dr. Hobbs has been involved in volunteer work, working as a team physician with Bonneville High School, and as a physician at the Ogden Rescue Mission, the Children’s Health Connection in Ogden, and the Davis Volunteer Medical Clinic.

She’s also served as adjunct faculty in Weber State University’s Department of Health, as well as a physician for WSU’s Department of Athletics and the Weber Basin Job Corps.

Dr. Hobbs is married and the mother of four children. In her spare time, you’ll find her listening to music, reading and spending time with her family.

What patients are saying about Dr. Hobbs

“Dr. Hobbs is very thorough and efficient and gets you in and out very quickly. We had our first visit with her and she found a couple things that had probably been the cause of our problems all along and no other doctor had ever figured them out. She puts you right at ease when you first meet her. She will be our doctor from here on out.”   —  Google+, Jan. 24, 2015

“Dr. Hobbs is excellent. I saw her as my primary family physician for a few years and now bring my son for his well-check visits and concerns. I am always impressed with her friendly manner and vast knowledge. She has helped me and my family get well and stay well.” —In-clinic comment card, Aug. 15, 2014

“Ten years ago when my doctor said he was dropping his patients I was devastated. How could I find another doctor who cared as much as he did and knew my situation and could help me as much as they did at McKay-Dee? My doctor referred me to Dr. Rachel Hobbs. This lady is amazing! Now we see several different doctors at Tanner Clinic for several different things and they are awesome! I wouldn’t trade Tanner Clinic in Layton for any other clinic!” — Windy on Facebook, Feb. 13, 2014

“Ihave been Dr. Hobbs’ patient for 10 years. I love her! She listens to her patients, addresses their concerns, and just genuinely cares about everyone that walks in her door. Her nurses are wonderful too. I have seen many doctors, whether specialists or family practice (from moves) and I always come back to her.” — Casey on Vitals.com, June 24, 2013
