GMHC Opens “Ill” Clinic and Urges Patients to Call Ahead

The Guttenberg Cornerstone Family Practice clinic is now open for ill patient visits ONLY and our clinics in Garnavillo and Edgewood are “Well” clinics, open for our healthy patients ONLY. Guttenberg hours have also changed to Monday through Friday: 8am to 5pm, no Saturdays.

All patients should call first to schedule an appointment, 563-252-2141, before going to either an “ill” clinic or a “well” clinic. If you have an appointment scheduled at one of our three clinics (Guttenberg, Edgewood or Garnavillo) you will be contacted by our office.

If you begin to experience symptoms and have been in close contact with a person known to have COVID-19, call your primary care provider.
