About Barbara R. Doherty


Barbara Doherty, MSN, CRNP diagnoses and treats pediatric patients with GERD, eosinophilic esophagitis, celiac disease, gluten intolerance, gastrointestinal (GI) allergies, growth concerns, and gastrostomy tube feeds. She particularly enjoys caring for patients with disorders of the brain-gut axis (functional GI disease) including irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), functional dyspepsia, cyclic vomiting syndrome, and abdominal migraines. 

Barbie enjoys building relationships with the children she treats and their families, and empowering them through all stages of growth and development. Barbie explains, “I love children and families. The impermanence of childhood makes each day spent with a child precious. The love and dedication parents have for their children is awe inspiring. I am lucky and blessed to work hand in hand with parents, and to be a part of their child’s healing journey.”

Barbie earned her bachelor’s degree in nursing at Boise State University. During her undergraduate studies, she spent a semester abroad in the Middle East working with children, an experience that inspired her to become a nurse practitioner. She earned her master’s degree as a nurse practitioner from Idaho State University. Prior to joining St. Luke's Children's Gastroenterology, she worked as an NP in pediatric primary care.

In her free time, she enjoys yoga, baking, gardening and playing outdoors with her husband and sons.
