HOW WE HELP
Our team of physicians understands the importance of partnering with adjusters, case managers, attorneys and employers to bring the industry partners together to efficiently and effectively navigate the health care of an injured worker.
Injured employees can be seen within 24 hours, or same day for trauma, by simply calling the Work Comp department at (515) 323-6490. Your dedicated coordinator will take it from there.
Adjusters and case managers have direct access to the physicians at each appointment to manage their patient’s case. Documentation and chart notes are delivered on the same day or within 24 hours.
We have multiple locations — four in the Des Moines metro area and 11 additional locations throughout rural central Iowa. Click here for a complete list of locations.
