[Fort Dodge, IA] – UnityPoint Clinic Pediatrics – Fort Dodge is proud to announce as of Tuesday, September 5, 2017, the clinic will be accepting same day and walk-in appointments for pediatric patients. Doctors Haider, Sankaran, Shrestha, Votta and nurse practitioner Kathy Lee, will be rotating coverage to provide these appointments.
The pediatric clinic, which can be found at Entrance B, has expanded their office space and now has three separate waiting rooms: sick, healthy and same day. Patients who have scheduled appointments will need to register upon arrival at Entrance B. Those patients, who are utilizing the new same day appointments, may go directly to the same day lobby which is located two doors down from the healthy waiting room.
“By enhancing and expanding the UnityPoint Clinic Pediatrics office space, we feel we’re doing everything we can to provide great, convenient health care services for our community’s pediatric population,” states Ryan Stepan, UnityPoint Clinic Director of Operations.
The clinic hours will remain Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.; all children are welcomed. A child does not need to be a UnityPoint Clinic Pediatrics patient to utilize same day or walk-in appointments; however if they are a UnityPoint Clinic patient the clinic will have access to their electronic medical record.
Because the new same day, walk-in appointments are seen on a first come, first serve basis; it is still advised to call the clinic to see if there are any openings. Parents should also continue to call ahead for their child’s well-child appointments with their designated primary care provider.
