Toro Family Medicine
For 11 years, Dr. Peggy Jo Toro has brought highly qualified and compassionate medical care to the residents of Bingham County. She greatly appreciated her patient’s trust and confidence in allowing her to provide care to them through the years. She has retired from active practice as of September 2, 2014, and her and her husband will soon be leaving on a humanitarian mission to Rwanda, Africa.
It is with great excitement we announce that Karla Adams—a Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) with over 26 years of medical experience—will begin seeing patients at Dr. Toro’s practice.
Karla started her career as a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) in Pocatello, Idaho—specializing in pediatric and family care. She then became certified as a Registered Nurse (RN) in Boise, Idaho, at Boise State University. Having attended Idaho State University, she now holds a Master of Science in Nursing as an FNP.
Specializing in family practice with an emphasis on pediatrics, Karla chose family medicine because she likes taking a holistic approach to healthcare by getting to know patients and treating an entire family. Karla enjoys seeing patients and appreciates knowing she can make a positive difference in their lives. She provides exemplary care for patients with an emphasis on health promotion and prevention.
She is very passionate about the people she cares for and says, “I go above and beyond to get to know patients as people, not just an illness. It comes from my heart and my caring nature is part of who I am.” She strives to help people with preventive medical maintenance and have a healthier lifestyle by educating her patients about positive choices early in life.
Having spent a large majority of her career in Boise, Idaho, returning to Bingham County is like coming home for Karla as she was raised in Aberdeen. In her spare time, she enjoys biking, camping, hiking, skiing, and spending time with her husband and her three daughters, one of whom is following in her footsteps by attending nursing school.
Karla is welcoming new patients. To schedule an appointment, please call: 782-3990.
