About Brittney Balik, PA
I became a PA in Family Medicine to care for people of all ages. As the mother of a 1 year old daughter, I love seeing children, watching them grow, and following them throughout the years into adulthood. I also have experience in women’s health and managing chronic conditions, including high blood pressure and diabetes. I do feel it is important to focus on preventative health and live an overall healthy lifestyle. However, when illness or injury strikes, I am here to diagnose, treat, and promote a quick recovery.
A little about me - I am originally from Dike, IA, and went to UNI where I graduated with a BA in Microbiology and Exercise Science in 2013. I then went to Des Moines University and graduated from the PA program in 2015. I got married shortly after and began working at Unity Point Family Medicine in Fort Dodge, IA. After 2 years, my family and I relocated to the Cedar Rapids area, and I began working at the Unity Point clinic in Mount Vernon, IA.
We love the area and look forward to building our family here.
