St. Luke’s Clinic – Jerome Family Medicine

Our family medicine providers care for people of all ages in all phases of life—from babies and children to teens and adults. We diagnose and treat most medical issues, from infections and sprains to diabetes and asthma. We also specialize in preventive care and can help you create and maintain a healthy lifestyle. 

We also offer specialty services including OB/GYN, orthopedics, and ear, nose, and throat (ENT). And our occupational health team provides employee physicals, work injury and medical care, and immunizations, with a goal to keep employees safe and healthy in the workplace.

As a member of the National Health Services Corps, we promise to serve all patients. This means we promise to: 

  • Offer discounted fees for qualifying patients
  • Never deny services based on a person’s race, gender, national origin, disability, religion, or sexual orientation
  • Accept insurance, including Medicaid, Medicare, and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP)
