Mount Ayr Medical Clinic

The clinic often functions like an urgent care office, and we treat people who require immediate attention. We also have a “no child is turned away” policy. If a child is sick and needs attention, we will find a way to see them. Staff nurses often work as case managers, caring for our elderly population and ensuring their needs are met. In special circumstances, we make house calls for current patients who may be home bound. Services provided: 

  • Family medical care 
  • Gynecology and prenatal care through 28 weeks of pregnancy 
  • Allergy diagnosis and testing 
  • Diabetes education 
  • Health coaching 
  • Wound care 
  • Home visits (within 20 miles of Mt. Ayr for homebound Medicare patients)
