UnityPoint Health - Madison

Primary Care

Here at UnityPoint Health - Meriter, we believe your primary care provider is more than just a doctor to call when you're sick. Routine care from your primary care doctor can help you stay healthy and get the right treatment for any health concern. Meriter's family medicine and internal medicine doctors and pediatricians can put you on the path to healthier living! 

UnityPoint Health - Meriter offers several tools and resources to help you find and choose a doctor that fits your family's needs:

Find a Doctor 

Simply search for a physician's name or department. Many of our physicians developed web videos to introduce themselves to you - just look for the "Watch Video" button underneath their names.

Not sure which doctor or clinic is right for you? Check out our Find a Doctor tool to find out!

Or, if you prefer, call our Dr4U Physician Referral Service at (608) 417-Dr4U (3748)

Prescription Refills 

If you need a prescription refilled, we ask that you call your pharmacy to reorder and they will contact your primary care clinic to confirm the refill.  You can also request a refill via MyUnityPoint (formerly Meriter MyChart).  If you have questions about prescriptions, we are proud to offer complimentary consults with a pharmacist at our primary care clinics and in the hospital.

Refills must be requested during regular office hours, weekdays 8:00a.m. to 5:00p.m. and may take up to 48 hours to process.

Lab Work and Tests

Our clinics offer a full range of laboratory testing services on site. If you need to stop in for lab tests between appointments, it is helpful for you to call ahead of time so that we may prepare your lab orders. Unless your physician states otherwise, we will contact you with any lab work results that require follow up.
