Our team is an important part of your healing journey at The West Clinic. You should get to know all of us. 






Dr. Jason West runs the world-renowned clinic in Pocatello, Idaho, and has patients from every state and from every continent. The West Clinic was started in 1916 and celebrates 100+ years of practice with four generations of doctors and six generations of patients.

Dr. West has been relentless in furthering his education. He completed a fellowship in Oriental Medicine, a Diplomate in nutrition, and a second doctorate as a Naturopathic Doctor. He uses his diverse educational background and other health care providers (MD, NP, DC, ND, and LAc) at the West Clinic to develop comprehensive treatment plans for all diseases. If it’s not an emergency like a heart attack, baby delivery, or surgery, chances are the West Clinic is treating someone with your symptom, diagnosis, or condition.

Shelby believes that finding the “WHY” to symptoms is the key to promoting optimal health. After exploring alternative ways to improve her own overall health she feels being able to integrate naturopathic, alternative, and traditional therapies for patients is a successful balance for improving health. Believing in her own ideas what a place of healing, hope, and integrative medicine would look like, led her to the West Clinic.
