With two decades of experience and a dedication to every patient he sees, it’s no surprise that Drew Simmons, FNP-C, has built a welcoming, friendly environment at Magic Valley Family Practice in Twin Falls, Idaho. As co-owner, he continually works to create an ideal health care environment for every patient who walks through the door.
Drew began his nursing education at Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, Arizona, where he graduated as a registered nurse. Not content to stop there, he spent years building his experience as a nurse in emergency medicine and in the intensive care unit. To further deepen his education, he earned two Master of Science degrees: one in nursing education and another in advanced practice nursing as a family nurse practitioner. He is licensed to practice in Idaho.
Today, he uses all his education and experience to help his patients lead their healthiest, happiest lives. He doesn’t just meet their health care needs; he offers guidance to help them achieve their wellness goals. The results are healthier patients and a fun, family-oriented environment at Magic Valley Family Practice.
When he’s not serving patients, you can find Drew spending time with his wife, two daughters, and two dogs. He loves scuba diving, golf, and any type of skiing — he’ll hit the slopes or the lake.
