What to Expect at Your Appointment
In order for us to surround you with care and clear communications, it is important that you have a doctor who knows your unique medical background and understands what's important to you.
When you have a physician you know and trust, you will feel confident that your provider is leading a team of health care professionals to surround you with care. Your primary care provider has the resources, network and background necessary to identify when it is best to refer you to a specialist or if care in your home might be ideal.
Before your appointment:
Transfer over your medical records prior to your visit for an easier transition by using this form.

During your appointment, make sure:
You're comfortable talking to the physician.
The physician answers all your questions.
The physician explains things in a way that you can understand.
You had enough time to ask all your questions.
It can take time to build a relationship with a physician, so be patient with the process, but if you know the fit isn't right, make sure you take the time to find the UnityPoint Health physician that is right for you or your loved one.
