I do all my healthcare with The Iowa Clinic's as well as my spouse. We travel 1 hour and 15 minutes because the healthcare is outstanding. Everyone is friendly from those that greet you at the front door to everyone inside. My appointments are always on time.

Praise From Our Patients

My husband and I could not be more pleased with or confident in the medical care we received at The Iowa Clinic Altoona Clinic, specifically from Dr. Matthew Nicholson. The entire experience, from booking an appointment to being greeted personally by Hazel at the front desk, has made us (and our son) loyal patients.
Altoona, IA

Praise From Our Patients

After 40 years of being away, I moved back to Des Moines. Through my research, I decided The Iowa Clinic was the place for me. Good decision. The facility is beautiful and well-run. Appointments are on time, which is a hard task!
