Where to Get the Care You Need, 
When You Need It

When a health need comes up, your first thought is to get medical care as soon as possible, and the after-hours clinic or closest emergency room may seem like the only options. As you consider an where to go, UnityPoint Health wants you to know all the ways you can get the care you need before spending more than you want to – or should.

When to Go to Your Primary Care Provider 

You can't guess when you or someone in your family will get sick. But, when things come up during the week, your primary care provider is the best place to start. Whether you need to be seen for an illness that doesn't need immediate attention or you need to set up your annual physical, your primary care provider can address all aspects of your care. Many primary care offices will even have same-day or next-day appointments available for non-emergent care.  

If you need assistance in choosing a primary care provider that meets your needs, please call (309) 779-7979.

Conditions Commonly Treated by a Primary Care Provider

  • Preventive care (routine immunizations, annual physicals and wellness exams)
  • Medication refills
  • Persistent cold symptoms
  • Sinus infection
  • Ear infection
  • Rash or skin infection
  • Diabetes
  • Fever
  • Sprains and strains
  • Pink eye
  • Wart removal 
  • High blood pressure and high cholesterol
