COVID-19 Care or Testing

If you have respiratory symptoms including fever, cough and/or difficulty breathing, and you have had contact with a person with COVID-19, please call your Primary Care Provider.You'll go through an assessment over the phone, which will help protect others from possible exposure to the virus.

UnityPoint Clinic is asking for our community's help, as we are experiencing extremely high volumes of sick patients and requests for COVID-19 testing. For people who are not sick, and haven't been exposed to COVID-19, but need to be tested for another reason, please consider other testing options in your community such as local pharmacies and public health departments. As always, if you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, we want to see you as soon as possible—particularly if you are high risk or unvaccinated.

When to Go to Urgent Care vs. Emergency Room


Primary Care & Pediatric Care

We've expanded our primary care and pediatric services to include 

  • Scheduled virtual visits over the phone or by video. If you have a non-urgent health concern and would like to talk to your primary care provider, please call your clinic during normal business hours to see if a video or telephone visit can be scheduled.
  • Virtual waiting rooms for appointments that require an in-person visit, so you can wait in the comfort of your car until an exam room is ready for you.
