About April Kolb, DO
April Kolb, DO joined The Iowa Clinic because of its reputation for excellent patient care. She comes to the clinic from the Family Medicine Residency program at Broadlawns in Des Moines.
Dr. Kolb chose Family Medicine because of the ability to care for patients of all ages. She considers getting to know her patients on a personal level and developing long-lasting relationships key to being a Family Medicine physician, and part of her job that she enjoys most.
While in medical school at Des Moines University, Dr. Kolb received additional training in osteopathic manipulation medicine (OMM). She was a teachers assistant in the OMM class, took two additional month-long rotations focused on OMM, as well as trained under a sports medicine physician, during her residency, who practiced OMM. Many of her patients, particularly those with common conditions such as acute and chronic pain, find relief. Because of her comprehensive approach to care, she feels that OMM is just "another tool in her toolbox."
A native to Cedar Rapids, she is excited to continue her medical career in a state she calls home. Her husband Greg and her identical twin sister are both in the medical field as well. Outside of work, Dr. Kolb enjoys spending time with family and friends, trying new restaurants, and spending time outdoors hiking, fishing, and swimming.
