Our Approach to Urgent Care

The Iowa Clinic offers the only Urgent Care in the Metro that is part of a multispecialty clinic which means you can be confident if something more serious is going on, our urgent care providers have direct and easy access to a team of specialists - often times in the same location.

At The Iowa Clinic, we believe that everyone should be able to obtain easily accessible medical care when they are sick or hurt. Our Urgent Care staff we will ensure that your treatment records are available to your primary care physician to facilitate effective and accurate follow-up care.

Walk-In Care

Our walk-in care services are second to none. Be sure to have your medical information readily available so that we can provide the most effective care. This should include a full list of your medications that you are currently taking. It will help our doctors quickly and accurately evaluate your health status. Also, bring your insurance card, the name of your primary care physician and photo identification such as a valid driver's license or an Iowa ID.
