Kids are not just small adults. They’re growing and developing, so their needs are constantly changing. At St. Luke’s Children’s Pediatrics, our team is dedicated to building a relationship with your family to support your child’s health, every step of the way. Our pediatricians are board certified by the American Board of Pediatrics and specialize in the needs of infants, children, and adolescents.

Weekend hours are available by appointment at our Celebration Ave location in Meridian. One of our physicians will always be on call. If you need to inquire about your child's illness or injury when our office is closed, please call (208) 505-2950 and follow the prompts to leave a message for a triage nurse. In most cases, we will be able to respond to your call within 2 hours. If the physician needs to be involved, the triage nurse will contact him or her for you. Please limit your calls to urgent problems that cannot wait until office hours. We recommend that you take your child to the emergency room for emergencies only.
Our symptom checker offers educational information on various conditions, and provides advice regarding home care or first aid, when appropriate, as well as instructions on when you may need to call your provider, call 911, or go to an emergency department. It also offers dosage tables for common over-the-counter drugs.
The information in our symptom checker is designed with patient safety as the highest priority. Each care guide is reviewed by physicians, specialists and nurses for accuracy.
If you need additional advice regarding your child's sickness or injury, please contact your provider.
