New Patients

Welcome to the Pocatello Children’s Clinic!

We believe that nothing is more rewarding than caring for children. As a parent, you know how exciting and sometimes challenging it can be. We are here to help. Every person in our office is dedicated to working with children. It’s our specialty; we wouldn’t have it any other way.

We would like to thank you for choosing us to care for your child(ren). When coming for your first visit we ask that you come 15 minutes early to fill out paperwork. We would also ask that you bring a copy of immunizations and any information that you would have from your previous provider. This information is helpful to our staff and the providers to make sure we provide you with the best care you deserve.

For your convenience, you can download the following forms and have them ready during check-in.

Complete Care:

We ask that you choose a Primary Care Provider at our clinic. Even if you aren’t able to see that physician for all your child’s visits, you will have one physician that oversees your child’s health to ensure the best care for your child. Our pediatricians staff Portneuf Medical Center’s Nursery, Pediatric Unit, and Pediatric Intensive Care Unit. If your child needs to be admitted to the hospital, there is a pediatrician from our clinic ready to care for them. In addition, multiple pediatric sub-specialists from Primary Children’s Hospital regularly work with our pediatricians and see patients in our clinic.
