Karla Adams, FNP-C*

Specialty: Family Medicine
*This provider proudly participates in the Bingham Direct Program.

Bingham Memorial Hospital is pleased to introduce Karla Adams, FNP, to the Bingham Memorial Family Medicine team.

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’s practice is located at: 315 W. Idaho Street, Blackfoot, Idaho. Karla is welcoming new patients.
