Manatt Walk-In Care
To reduce community spread of COVID-19, we're asking all patients to please wear a mask or face covering at our UnityPoint Health hospital and clinic locations. Please see our COVID-19 information page for more information.
We're asking for your patience and kindness as we experience extremely high volumes of sick patients and requests for COVID-19 testing. Our team is working hard, even putting in extra shifts, to best serve you. If you must wait, please be understanding. Our team members always strive to treat everyone with dignity, respect and give their full attention to your personal needs. Showing kindness is one way we can all get through this together. How you can help:
Know Where to Go for Care
If you aren't feeling well, start by seeing if your primary care provider has availability. If not, check out more information on how to find the right care in the quickest time possible.
Consider COVID-19 Testing Options
For people who aren't sick or recently exposed to COVID-19, but need to be tested, please consider other community testing options such as local pharmacies or public health departments. As always, if you're experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, we want to see you as soon as possible — particularly if you're high-risk or unvaccinated. Please see our COVID-19 testing page for more information.
At the Manatt Walk-In Clinic, we provide quick, convenient care so you can resolve minor medical issues without going to the emergency department or when your primary care office is closed. Our expert team is here to treat your urgent care needs.
Note: NO narcotics or other controlled substances are prescribed or refilled.
