NDOC, Nonpartisan Doctors of Coeur d'Alene, is an independent group of local physicians, comprised of both Republicans and Democrats, who care deeply about our community. We believe in critical thinking, the scientific method and expertise.

We promote civility and kindness, and shun bullying and intimidation. We support qualified, experienced, and competent leadership with two objectives in mind.

First, to help us on our mission to provide exceptional care for our community, and second, to maintain a vibrant local economy with strong educational opportunities for our children. These goals are directed toward continuing to attract and retain high-quality healthcare workers to care for the people of this region.

To these ends, we have partnered with the bipartisan groups CEQEC (Citizens to Elect Qualified Experienced Candidates), DART (Democrats and Republicans working Together) and the Post Falls Citizens for Public Education.
