PCI Primary Care Is Your Convenient Choice
Unfortunately we don’t always get to pick and choose when we see a doctor. Whether the issue is injury or illness, when you have pressing needs you don’t want to wait around for care. That’s why we make convenience a priority at Physicians’ Clinic of Iowa. We’re dedicated to ensuring patients get the care they need, when they need it, with minimal difficulty or disruption to daily life.
Why Physicians’ Clinic of Iowa Is a Convenient Choice
There’s nothing more frustrating than calling your doctor and hearing the earliest available appointment is weeks away. PCI works to eliminate this annoyance by offering same-day appointments whenever possible. Additionally, we offer walk-in appointments to help address even your most urgent needs. You can quickly schedule an appointment online for either option to find a time that works for you and your family’s schedule.
Centrally located in downtown Cedar Rapids, PCI is easy to visit no matter what part of town you’re coming from. We’re just minutes off of I-380 on 10th St SE in the PCI Medical Pavilion. Our primary care offices are on the first floor, making access easy for patients of all ages. On top of that, we have ample covered parking right next to the building, and there’s a covered walkway entrance for those cold and snowy winter days in Iowa.
Who has the time to wait for statements to arrive in the mail and then write a check for payment? At PCI we’ve embraced online payment technology so you can pay medical bills at your convenience. You can use your PCI Patient Portal account, or just make a secure, one-time payment without the need to create an additional login. Of course, you can always stop into the PCI Pavillion and our friendly team will help you pay your bill in person if that’s your preference.

Our expert team of doctors and specialists offer a wide variety of services, all under one roof. For example, our primary care and family medicine department offers everything from annual physicals and flu shots to well child care and mental health counseling. Plus, with PCI as your primary care doctor you can get seamless, fast referrals to our network of in-house specialists.
3 Benefits of a Primary Care Physician
You might think that as long as you’re in good health and don’t have urgent needs, there’s no reason to establish a relationship with a primary care physician. However, even if you don’t require immediate medical attention, having a doctor you see regularly comes with many convenient advantages.
Continuity of Care
A primary care provider works with you to offer comprehensive care that meets all of your needs. As you build a relationship with your physician, they have a more complete understanding of your health history. This can help with everything from diagnosing issues quickly and accurately to collaborating with other specialists to ensure you’re getting the care you need. The better your doctor understands your health, the better they can help you prevent issues in the long run.
When you see the same doctor regularly, it makes the entire process more efficient. You won’t have to fill out forms or review your history with each visit. This familiarity also allows them to address issues that come up between regular appointments. Instead of visiting the office, your doctor can often help with minor issues over the phone or through a televisit.
Talking to a stranger about highly personal issues and health concerns can be uncomfortable. It’s typically much easier for patients to bring up these topics with a primary care doctor they have an established relationship with. Thanks to this more open relationship, you can create better communication leading to better care. Beyond the primary care doctor, it’s always comforting to visit an office where the entire staff knows your name and wants what’s best for your health.
