Firstly, thanks so much for all the responses I got to my last post
Idaho Falls vs Pocatello vs Blackfoot

We've been house-hunting and deliberating this whole time and have finally got a house here in Idaho Falls! We get the keys today!!

Now that we're on the way to being properly settled I do have some questions because I'm finding it hard to get answers online and as yet don't really know anyone in town. Would really appreciate your recommendations on the below

1) Internet Service Providers? I'm reading horrible reviews on Century Link, Cable One and the smaller companies.

2) Cell phone services? I want to switch from Verizon to something cheaper but I'm afraid that I won't be getting reception that's as good. I'd be fine with a non-smart phone.

3) A good, reasonably-priced vet?

4) A good GP and Pediatrician (we are leaning to the pediatric center but wondered if anyone had any particular thoughts)?

5) And for that matter any recommendations on Obgyns? (for my future reference) I'd like one that's pro-natural birth and would do a vbac, I know not the easiest thing to find anywhere.

I've been reading this forum from time to time and I want to thank you again for al the input and advice you've all shared. Now that we're really here I look forward to contributing my own thoughts as well.

Hi Didi,

I'm glad you got your house keys today. Congrats.

As for your questions, ask Cleosmom about a Vet. I think I know her recommendation but ask her and Banjomike.

Cellphones, well that kind of depends on where you live and your anticipated need. Verizon and A T and T are good. I had zero problems with AT&T and my iPhone when that contract was in place. Did you read the cell phone thread?

I'll be happy to answer questions about OB/GYNs, Pediatrician's and F. P.s. Just send me a PM and ages of kids plus any chronic problems and/or meds. The same for an OB and FP. I won't post openly about individual physicians.

Others are much better help about ISPs etc.

Welcome to Idaho Falls and I hope when you get your ISP and moved in, we'll see .ore of you here.
I hope your husband is happy in his job and your family is happy in Idaho Falls

MSR

Well Didi, it appears the pediatrician's I mentioned will be adding another, probably in the summer. It could be one of the most Sr. Members is retiring or only going to work 1/2 time. There absolutely is the need. I'll have to research him further to know more. But I'm 100% comfortable with what I told you earlier.

I am also interested in learning about veterinarian recommendations, as well as high speed internet service. I think I read those same reviews on CableOne as the OP.
