Acute Care / Urgent Care

For more than 30 years, the Medical Associates Acute Care has been the urgent care center of choice for the treatment of minor illness or injury for Dubuque and surrounding communities.

Acute Care

Wouldn’t it be nice if you only got sick or injured during normal business hours? But life doesn’t work that way. The Acute Care/Urgent Care Center is a convenient option for those times when you need treatment for your minor illness or injury and a visit to your personal physician is not possible.

We are staffed with a highly qualified team of board-certified physicians, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners, which means you will be seen and treated promptly, while also receiving outstanding medical care and customer service. All of this, and your co-pay is considerably less than a visit to the emergency room!
