Health care from physicians experienced in caring for people from all over the world

Our providers are dedicated to helping you get the high-quality health care you deserve, communicated in your language. We’re here to provide care in a way that you understand, and we make every effort to meet your medical needs while getting to know you and your unique background.

One place for every member of the family to get health care

We can care for everyone in your family—children and adults, no matter what age.

Our services include everything you’d expect from a family doctor, including routine checkups, care for illnesses and injuries, chronic disease management, and women's health. We can connect you with maternity care and will refer you to specialist doctors when necessary.

Need help finding a provider who speaks your language?

Call us at 1-319-467-6789 and tell us which language you speak. We’ll connect you with an interpreter who will help you get started so that you can make your first appointment and get the care you need.

Connecting you with an interpreter may require some extra time and may require more than one phone call. When you call, please be prepared to wait. We appreciate your patience.
