Specialty: Urgent Care & Family Medicine

We are pleased to introduce McKenzie Decker, family nurse practitioner (DNP-FNP), who works at Bingham Healthcare’s urgent cares throughout Eastern Idaho.

McKenzie assesses patients of all ages by performing a comprehensive history, physical examination, and appropriate diagnostic testing. She formulates plans to manage a patient’s condition medically and serves as a health information resource through interactions with patients and their families.

Specifically, she treats patients with acute illnesses including fever, dehydration, influenza, asthma exacerbation, pneumonia, accidental ingestion, appendicitis, bowel obstructions, gastroenteritis, serious bug bites, burns, abscesses, and other viral illnesses. She also treats patients with head injuries, lacerations, sprains, fractures, and dislocations.

McKenzie earned her Bachelor of Health Science and Bachelor of Science in Nursing (and RN certification) from Idaho State University in Pocatello, ID. In addition, she completed her Doctor of Nursing Practice (and Family Nurse Practitioner studies) at Idaho State University in Pocatello, ID.

McKenzie was born and raised in Pocatello, ID. When she is not practicing medicine, she enjoys spending time with my husband and two children exploring the mountains of Idaho.
