Pediatric Nurse Practitoner

My focus as a pediatric nurse practitioner is looking at the whole child, considering the physical, mental, and social health issues that might affect a child’s growth and development. My role is to educate, counsel, be an advocate and friend to my patients and their parents. As a mother of two children, I understand how anxiety inducing it can be to be a parent. My goal is to be a resource to you as you raise your children to be healthy and happy.

Tara Patrick, our pediatric nurse practitioner, loves kids. She brings more than a decade of experience as a primary care pediatric provider to Blue Moose Pediatrics, working in office with beloved Missoula pediatrician, Dr. Ted Laine. The mythical Blue Moose is our symbol of strength, power, fun, and joy – all things we hope for our children as they grow.
