About Nicole Stoecken, DO

Nicole Stoecken, DO joined The Iowa Clinic in 2023 because of the high standards in providing the highest quality care. She admires the community involvement that TIC has, which is a priority for her, her patients, and the Grimes and surrounding communities.

Dr. Stoecken chose to practice community-based pediatrics because she loves the opportunity to build relationships with parents and build a partnership in the health and wellbeing of the child from the newborn stage through the transition into young adulthood. Having practiced general pediatrics for nearly the past decade, Dr. Stoecken has treasured the opportunity to care for families and children in the community where she lives and has chosen to raise her family.

The most rewarding part of being a pediatrician is the continued relationships she develops and loves the moments when a patient recognizes her outside of the clinic and excitedly shares their successes on recent exercise goals or healthy eating choices.

With the arrival of her fourth child, her life was unexpectedly changed when her child was diagnosed at birth with Down Syndrome. What she once feared has become one of the greatest blessings in her life. As a special needs mom, she has learned so many things about caring for a child with different health care needs, which has been an immeasurable addition in helping her patients and families navigate through their own healthcare journey.

Outside of work, Dr. Stoecken is active in a nonprofit organization in Des Moines – Gigi’s Playhouse --which provides services and support for individuals with Down Syndrome, as well as their families. She has greatly enjoyed participating in Gigi’s events in support of her daughter, as well as some of her patients. Together with her high school sweetheart, Andy, they have four children -- Emma, Blake, Brooks, and Josie, where they have resided in Grimes for many years. They enjoy spending their time boating at the lake, spending time with neighbors, traveling, or partaking in numerous sports, especially cheering on the Iowa Hawkeyes. If she were not a provider, she might have been a zookeeper.
