UnityPoint Clinic primary care providers deliver high-quality, personalized care to help you maintain your overall health and well-being. As your trusted health partner, we know your medical history inside and out and can help you stay well and provide the right treatment plan when you are sick. Your primary care provider can diagnose and treat many health-related conditions and will coordinate your care if you need to see a specialist. We are committed to providing the best outcome for every patient, every time.
When establishing care with a provider, patients can choose to see a family medicine provider or an internal medicine provider, also known as an internist. A family medicine provider treats men, women and children of all ages, providing a wide range of health services, including preventative care, pediatrics and care for chronic conditions such as high blood pressure and diabetes. Internal medicine providers treat adults 18 years of age and older. This includes both healthy individuals and those with complex medical issues.

What Type of Appointment Do I Need?
Primary Care encompasses the comprehensive treatment of a number of diseases in symptoms and specialties including pediatrics, internal medicine and family medicine. Rather than specializing in one particular area of medicine, the physician is trained to meet all the needs of patients as one point of contact. Examples of symptoms and conditions treated by a primary care provider can include:
- Minor medical problems and injuries
- Physicals/Sports Physicals
- Medicine Checks
- Long Term Care
- Medication Refill
- Ongoing Symptoms (ex: Continued Back Pain)
- Care or Treatment Planning
- Disease Management
- Managing Existing Conditions (Migraines, Depression, Anxiety, Arthritis, etc.)
- Substance Abuse
- High blood pressure
- Diabetes and obesity
- Skin problems
Urgent Care and Express treat minor medical problems and injuries that are not life-threatening, but need the attention of a health care provider. These are not an alternative to the emergency room, but offer the ability to get walk-in care without an appointment for all patient ages. Urgent Care is available after hours, weekends and holidays. Our Urgent Care Clinics can provide medical treatment for minor illness and injuries such as:
- Cuts (Stitches)
- Earaches or Ear Infections
- Minor Medical Problems and Injuries
- Minor Eye Care
- Fractures (X-Ray On-Site at Most Locations)
- Sore Throats
- Sprains, Including Sprained Ankles (X-Ray On-Site at Most Locations)
- Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs)
- Yeast Infections
- Certain Rapid Tests
Please note: Flu shots, physicals and/or sports physicals are not offered at every walk-in care location.
