Grand Peaks prides itself in being able to provide Family Medicine. Family Medicine is defined as a specialty in the practice of medicine which is comprehensive; it includes all ages, genders, the full body and basic treatment of every disease entity. Our view of Family Medicine is that we provide a Patient Centered Medical Home for the patient, and create long lasting and caring relationships with patients as well as their families from birth to end of life.

We love children of all ages. Our medical team is happy to see patients that range in age from newborn babies and toddlers up through the teenage years to the age of 18. Whether your child has an illness or even an injury we are happy to see and treat them. Grand Peaks also looks forward to seeing our Pediatric patients annually!

Chronic conditions such as Diabetes, Asthma, Arthritis, Hypertension (high Blood Pressure), as well as many other conditions which take ongoing care and treatment. No two conditions or patients are exactly the same. Our team works hard to provide care, resources and education about your condition. Ongoing and consistent care is important to maintaining your lifestyle and quality of life.

Our team of Medical Assistants, Nurses, Physician Assistants and Care Coordinator all work together to ensure that our patients receive the services they need. When we cannot provide the care you need in-house, you will be referred to other specialists, facilities, hospitals or resources. We want to ensure that you receive the care you need, however we stay in contact with those that you were referred to. This ensures that our Providers are aware of the care and progress you have outside of our facility.

Our Care Coordinator assists patients with referrals, scheduling at specialists offices, connecting to community resources, as well as providing additional support and education to patients with a chronic illness. This service is offered at no charge.

  • During our office hours, Grand Peaks is happy to see you for your immediate or urgent healthcare needs. We are able to treat all sorts of injuries from broken fingers to sprained ankles, lacerations, bruises and more. Either location is able to run many labs, take x-rays, as well as stitch up a more severe wound.
  • *Please note, an Immediate or Urgent care is not appropriate for all medical issues. If you have severe wounds and bleeding, chest pain, trouble breathing or loss of consciousness, call 911 or get to an Emergency Room.
Our Providers have experience treating a number of behavioral health and mental health conditions. Examples of conditions include depression, anxiety, OCD, and ADHD. Our Medical Team will also work to refer you to appropriate services that could help your overall mental wellness. We encourage everyone to reach out for help when dealing with a mental illness.

Additional Services

Our in-house Lab and X-ray equipment provides many results at the same time as your appointment. Labs can be drawn and an x-ray can be taken during your visit; many times the Provider can discuss the results of those diagnostic tests in one appointment. This can save not only time, but money on additional visits. While our Providers may advise patients to follow-up with them, these visits can be reduced by having diagnostic labs and images done during the appointment.

With our In-house Pharmacy, you may be able to fill some common prescriptions before you leave the clinic. Our 340(b) Pharmacy is a discount pharmacy program, and is available to our patients (other than those insured by Medicaid). Patients must establish care with one of our Providers AND have a medication that our Provider prescribes. Not all medications are available, however those that are may be offered with tremendous discount, versus the traditional pharmacy. There may be a short wait for our staff to fill your medication, however the convenience is well worth the wait. *All refills must be requested at least 24 hour in advance to one of our locations.

The cost of prescription medications can be staggering. Grand Peaks staff provide assistance for our patients in finding ways to help afford their prescriptions. Our staff has access to a number of resources which can help with co-pay amounts or even receiving the medication with little to no cost from the manufacturer.

Navigating health insurance can be overwhelming. Our Certified Enrollment Counselors are available to help! This free service has been coordinated with the Your Health Idaho Insurance Exchange and is a free service for anyone who has questions about insurance or health insurance exchange. We are here to help!

If a patient presents themselves at our clinic, we evaluate them to see if the injury or illness is significant enough to receive care at an Emergency Room.

A. Yes! Both of our medical facilities have X-ray and Laboratory equipment which allow many Labs to be performed and results to be given to you before you leave the facility. Some Labs are sent to an outside Laboratory, however. A member of our Nursing/Medical Assistant staff or Provider will let you know if this is the case.

All prescriptions must be paid for at time of pick-up.
