    Muscatine Living

    It’s a typical Saturday morning. After playing at a neighbor’s pool, you notice red spots on your two kids. It could be bug bites, but better to be safe than sorry. This is how the story begins for lifelong Muscatine resident Stephanie Anson, mother of Matthew (7) and Mackenzie (5).

    After several positive experiences at UnityPoint Clinic® Express Care – North Port, Anson reserved a spot, packed the kids into the car and went right in. 

    “We went and found out it was the start of an infection from our neighbor’s pool,” says Anson. “I’m so glad I took them. I would never have thought that. We were seen right away, they called in our antibiotics while we were there and got us taken care of – I love to go to our Express Care – they are great every time.”

    Luckily, for non-life threatening injuries or illness, the experts at Express Care – North Port offer options for making care as convenient as possible with the flexibility of walk-in appointments any time of day, including evening and weekend hours, and the option to Reserve Your Spot online, so your family can get the care they need, when they need it.

    1. Express Care is walk-in medical care at a moment’s notice for people of any age. No appointment needed.

    If your loved one is sick, or suffers an injury, the experts at Express Care can provide quick medical attention. Just walk in.

    2. Spend less time worrying and find out what’s wrong, right away – even after hours and on weekends.
