Walk-In Appointments: October 14 at Medical Clinic in Ottumwa

PELLA, Iowa— Starting Monday, October 14, Pella Regional’s Medical Clinic in Ottumwa has walk-in appointments during normal business hours, Monday – Friday, 8 am – 5 pm, to better serve the needs of patients. 

In an effort to offer more convenience, patients are able to do online reservations to reserve a spot for an appointment. The system works similar to call-ahead seating at a restaurant. Patients can choose an “approximate visit time” and hold their place in line. To view wait times or to save your spot, go to www.pellahealth.org/walkin.

After an online reservation is made, the patient receives a reminder via text message to ensure they do not miss their appointment.

  • Upper respiratory problems
