We believe it is important for clients to have a medical home/primary care provider they see on an annual basis to establish a doctor/patient relationship, continuity of care and to optimize insurance coverage.

Nurse practitioner can see patients of all ages who are uninsured or under insured for the following services:

  • physical examinations including Well-Child checks, school physicals and pre-employment physicals
  • management of chronic diseases (patients wanting to make healthy lifestyle changes and choices) including but not limited to high cholesterol, diabetes and hypertension
  • enroll patients in Iowa Get Screened Program (colorectal cancer screening)
  • well women exams through Healthy Women Program
