Welcome to Walnut Street Health & Wellness.
We hear it all the time from our patients: The best health care and wellness advice that you can get comes from people who you can respect and trust.
That's why we're here: To provide health care management and wellness services that are focused on each person we serve. If you're looking for a unique approach, we can help.

We're your partner in health and wellness, with you every step of the way.
Being healthy as a family is just as important as striving to be a healthy, happy individual. Without caring for the health of the family, the long term wellness of everyone living under your roof can be at risk. We find ways and share ideas to help you and your family members stay well all year long. Once we get to know you, our conversations with you are designed to find ways to help you sustain family well-being.
Viruses and bacteria that cause illness can be passed on to those who are not protected by vaccines. Just as people can easily travel across Iowa or the rest of the planet, it’s not hard to see how easily diseases can travel too. Vaccines will help keep you healthy. We recommend vaccinations from birth through adulthood to provide a lifetime of protection against many diseases and infections.
At Walnut Street Health & Wellness, our experienced team is able to conduct comprehensive lab testing in order to test anything that's related to a medical exam or a required bio sampling. Our lab can test for diabetes, glucose, thyroid, hemoglobin A1C, and much more. We require that 12 hours of fasting takes place prior to any lab testing draws.
Hormones are incredible chemical messengers in our body that affect our brain, heart, bones, muscles and reproductive organs.They are an essential part of the workings of every cell in the human body. While hormones are best when balanced, they can throw anyone off when they become imbalanced. We work with men and women to ensure proper hormone treatment and long-term balance.
A dietary supplement is intended to provide nutrients that may otherwise not be consumed in sufficient quantities. Supplements generally include vitamins, minerals, fiber, fatty acids or amino acids, among other substances. At Walnut Street Health & Wellness, we work with you to understand your nutritional regimen and compare against what you should be doing, considering your age, health condition and other factors. We help you to come up with a nutritional plan designed to enhance your long-term health regimen and overall well-being.
Childhood is a time of rapid growth and change. Children should have more well-child visits when they are younger as their development is faster during these years. Each visit includes a complete physical exam. With each exam, we check your child's growth and development to find or prevent problems. Even if your child is healthy, well-child visits are a good time to focus on your child's health. We talk with you and your child about ways to improve care and prevent problems to keep your child healthy.
Many of our patients visit us to complete a physical exam that is required either by their employer or by schools that request a thorough physical prior to entering sports, a new job or other physically-dependent requirements. At Walnut Street Health & Wellness, we can complete the exam based on the specifications that are requested by the employer or the school, and can submit the results for the patient. We are thorough and meet all exam standards for this program.
DEPT OF TRANSPORTATION
A Department of Transportation (DOT) physical examination must be conducted by a licensed medical examiner listed on the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) National Registry. Walnut Street Health & Wellness providers are trained and certified to provide such physical exams. We meet all DOT requirements in order for patients to obtain commercial motor vehicle certification. Contact us for more information.
