At UnityPoint Health Fort Dodge, the health and safety of our patients, communities and team members is at the center of everything we do. Here's what we're doing to make sure you're safe when you visit our locations.
Taking care of yourself is still important during this time. That's why we're making it easier for you to get the care you need when you need it. We've expanded our primary care services at select clinics to include Scheduled Virtual Visits over the phone or by video. For non-urgent health concerns, please call your clinic to see if a virtual visit can be scheduled with your doctor.
Don't have a doctor? Use our online Find a Doctor tool to request a new appointment.
Some examples of conditions or questions that are a good fit for Scheduled Virtual Visits include:
Once your virtual visit is scheduled, our team will help you get set up for your visit on smartphone, tablet or computer. You can also reference our Mobile Setup Guide or Personal Computer Setup Guide.
For primary care appointments requiring a clinic visit, we've launched a new text messaging platform to create a virtual waiting room. This platform allows you to easily communicate directly with your clinic without stepping foot in the door.
For your child's pediatric appointments, we encourage you to continue well-child visits that include vaccinations – these are important for newborns and young children to help keep them and others safe. Contact your pediatric clinic before arriving to ensure you are set up with the texting platform and to ensure you're aware of any additional processes put in place for your visit.
Also, many of our pediatric clinics are now scheduling virtual visits with our patients. Some examples of conditions or questions that are a good fit for Scheduled Virtual Visits are listed above.
If you or a loved one have chronic health issues such as diabetes, heart disease or a suppressed immune system, we want to stress the importance of handwashing, staying at home, taking advantage of grocery delivery and limiting contact with others. Please call your clinic to discuss options for any upcoming visits.
