There may be times when a specialist is better suited for your care than your family doctor. Often, making a phone call to your doctor's office or sending a message using UnityPoint Health's secure patient portal, MyChart, can help your doctor make that determination. It won't help to send your doctor a message requesting a referral without explaining your problem, though. A better approach is to send questions and explain your health concerns. Your family physician can then use that information to determine whether you should see them or a specialist first. Keeping those lines of communication open also helps your family doctor maintain their role as your partner in health.

How do I find a family doctor accepting new patients?

You've come to the right place. Any of the doctors on this page are accepting new patients and can see you within 5 business days. We also have several family medicine providers throughout our system accepting new patients that are not listed on this page. Please call your local clinic, or clinic of choice (maybe it's near your work or somewhere convenient to you), and feel free to ask them if a specific provider or if any providers are accepting new patients. You can search for all of our providers or search by clinic, simply go to our Find A Doctor page at unitypoint.org/findadoctor.

I have recently moved to Central Iowa, can I see any of the providers or doctors on this page?

Yes! Request an appointment online or call to schedule your appointment. If you're transferring within the UnityPoint Health system, we will have your medical record for convenience. If you're moving into our health family from a different system, we are so happy you're here! We understand moving can be stressful so we want to make it as easy as possible for you. To transfer medical records, you (patient) has to sign a release to send records to the patient (you) or directly to a clinic. If you have any questions, feel free to call your new clinic and discuss best options.

What does a family medicine doctor do?

Family medicine doctors provide a number of important health-related services. In addition to routine checkups and immunizations, your family medicine doctor can provide a variety of services for your physical, emotional and mental health, including screenings, health risk assessments, pregnancy planning, family development education and family counseling.
