WATERLOO, Iowa (August 2023)– Cedar Valley Medical Specialists (CVMS) has been providing world-class care throughout the Cedar Valley and surrounding area for over 25 years. With over 32 medical specialties, over 91 providers and over 400 dedicated team members, they have grown as a medical group, while keeping their standards high and their medical breakthroughs progressive.

As the Cedar Valley continues to grow, there has been an ongoing need for more walk-in and urgent care clinics. Cedar Valley Primary Care & Walk-In Clinic (CVPCW), led by Dr. James J. Poock, has responded to the need by expanding their Waterloo clinic hours. Cedar Valley Primary Care & Walk-In Clinic is now open seven days a week from 8 a.m. – 8 p.m. The clinic offers quick, personal and thorough medical care to patients of all ages.

Not only has the walk-in clinic’s hours at the Waterloo location expanded, CVPCW has announced the opening of the new Shellsburg location. The new walk-in clinic will be located at 131 Main Street in Shellsburg, Iowa 52332. Melanie Dahlhauser, ARNP is the newest addition to the CVPCW team. “I became a provider to use my knowledge and experience to help others achieve their greatest state of health,” Melanie said. “I believe in treating the patient as a person rather than treating them as a medical issue or disease. The quality of care I provide is compassionate and evidence based. If I don’t know the answers, I will strive to find the answers through teamwork and collaboration.”

The Shellsburg clinic opens on September 5, 2023! Patients don’t need a referral or appointment to be seen by the highly trained providers; patients can simply walk in! Visit CVPrimary.care to learn more about the clinic, providers and locations.
