Dr. Sheila Idzerda, MD

I am pleased to open Acorn Pediatrics in our beautiful location in Bozeman, Montana. I am proud of our team and how well we work together to provide excellent health care. After 25 years as a pediatrician, 16 of which has been in Bozeman, I love coming to work each day. I love seeing my patients and relish staying current on new advances in pediatrics.
Dr. Courtney Handlin, DO

It has been an absolute pleasure providing nursing care for families in Bozeman for over 21 years. I love taking care of children and enjoy the personalities, brightness and honesty that they share with us. Kids do really say the funniest things. Bozeman is a fantastic community and we are thrilled to be part of making this a great place to live!
Registered Nurse, RN
I am thrilled to be a part of Acorn Pediatrics! Originally from the Cayman Islands, I have been a part of the Bozeman community for 12 years and our three children have been well care for by Acorn. I am a very proud MSU Bobcat RN and look forward to working with your children along with our fantastic Acorn team.
I started working for Acorn Pediatrics in the Fall of 2013. It is so wonderful to be in a work environment with providers that are dedicated to providing the absolute best possible care for children. As a mother to a 2 year old, I appreciate how caring and passionate Dr. Idzerda, Dr. Handlin, and all of the staff are for every individual patient. I love working at Acorn and we are all working hard to provide excellence in pediatric healthcare to the Gallatin Valley!
I was born in Seattle and moved to Bozeman to attend MSU. I fell in love with Montana! I recently graduated from MSU in the Spring of 2016 with a degree in Biochemistry. I love working at Acorn Pediatrics and seeing all of the amazing kids and their families!
