Our Team

Acorn Pediatrics was started out of a desire to provide high quality medical care for children and teens in the Gallatin Valley and the surrounding region.

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.
