General Information



Walk-In is held on the lower level of the Medical Group; best accessed through entrance #4 on the north side of our campus in Oskaloosa. 

Do you treat patients of all ages?

We treat patients 6 months and older for one acute illness per visit.

What does acute mean?

Acute medical conditions often come on fast or happen quickly (cuts, sprains, infections, fever, burns, sore throats) and are serious enough to require medical attention quickly, but are not life threatening.

Walk-In is not intended to replace routine medical care with your primary care provider. Walk-In is NOT a substitute for emergency care. If you have other medical concerns that are not acute; providers from Walk-In will coordinate with your primary care provider for ongoing medical care.

Who will be treating me?

We are primarily staffed by a highly trained care team of Nurse Practitioners, Physician Assistants and nurses; but physicians do fill in to assist with staffing.

When should I see my Primary Care Provider?

Regular visits with your primary care provider are important because your provider is familiar with your overall health, taking into account your history and existing medical conditions. This consistency and personal care helps ensure a long and healthy life for you and your family.

If you do not have an established primary care provider, please call our friendly team of MHP Medical Group schedulers to make an appointment and establish care. You can reach the MHP Medical Group at 641.672.3360. You can also learn more about our primary care provider team here.
