Designed with your unique health needs in mind, the Family Medicine services at Mahaska Health are provided by caring professionals who are specially trained in your health care needs. Our Nurses, Physicians and our Care Teams offer comprehensive care for all ages and all stages of life.

Family Medicine providers, which includes family practice and pediatric providers, are professionals trained to care for your overall general health and well-being. Staying on top of routine screenings is one of the most important aspects of healthy aging. Many serious conditions don’t present symptoms in their early stages, and they can become much more difficult to treat as they progress. The good news: these regular tests can detect conditions when they’re at their most treatable.

No appointment? No Problem.

At Mahaska Health, we are dedicated to caring for you. Same-day appointments are filled on a first come, first serve basis.

AMOPS gold Mahaska Health Oskaloosa IA

Even if you are feeling great – if you are 45 years or older, you should have a screening for colorectal cancer to prevent a very preventable cancer. The American Cancer Society’s updated screening recommendations are to start this life-saving test at age 45 due to upward trends in colon cancer among younger adults.

Staying on top of routine screenings is one of the most important aspects of healthy aging. Many serious conditions don’t present symptoms in their early stages, and they can become much more difficult to treat as they progress. The good news: these regular tests can detect conditions when they are at their most treatable. Take time to obtain the health screenings you need and establish care with a primary care provider so you can have peace of mind with personalized, compassionate care right here, close to home.

Mahaska Health’s Primary Care and General Surgery Teams provide exceptional GI care with a focus on prevention and are ready to help make sure you never miss out on life’s important moments. Our expert medical teams have the experience, specialization, and state-of-the-art technology to diagnose and treat to provide the highest level of care. To schedule a screening contact your Primary Care provider or call our Care Team at 641.672.3360.
