Internal Medicine at UnityPoint Clinic
Our Internal Medicine providers, also called internists, provide comprehensive, ongoing primary care care focused on the unique needs of adults 18 years of age and older and throughout all stages of adult life. Your internist treats the whole body, not just the internal organs, in order to maintain or improve your health. Internal medicine providers offer preventive care, and are also experts in treating both common illnesses, and managing chronic medical conditions that adults may face throughout their adult life. Above all, they are committed to preventing, treating and managing a broad range of acute and chronic medical conditions in a variety of settings.
