Schedule a free introductory appointment with a provider

Have you recently moved into the area or are you simply looking for a new health care provider? Choosing a provider is a very personal and important decision, perhaps even life-changing.

“One of the best ways to find a provider with the expertise that meets your health needs is to have a face-to-face introductory meeting,” explained Mandy Pettit, RN, Nurse Manager with Crossing Rivers Health Clinics in Prairie du Chien and Fennimore. “We are pleased to offer free introductory appointments with any of our clinic providers. The introductory meeting is simply a meet and greet— with no obligation. It is not a health appointment or physical. It is an opportunity to get a feel for that particular provider, learn their practice style and areas of interest, ask questions, and make sure you are both on the same page.”

Dr. Steven Bush, Chief Medical Officer at Crossing Rivers Health, explained why this opportunity is being offered at no charge. He said, “When you put your health— your life— in someone else’s hands, you need to feel confident about your choice. We have six providers, each of them experienced to help coordinate every aspect of your care, from routine physicals to referrals to our specialists to help manage chronic health conditions. They are able to treat patients of both genders and all ages, from newborns to the elderly. We want to help area residents find a health care provider that is the right fit for their health care needs.”

The health care providers at Crossing Rivers Health Clinics urge individuals to schedule a free introductory appointment. The providers include Dr. Matthew Olson and Dr. Owen Vincent, Board Certified Family Medicine Physicians; Dr. Sara Rybarczyk, Board Certified Internal Medicine Physician; Terri Payne, Family Nurse Practitioner/Certified Nurse Midwife; and Holly Griswold and Susan McMillan, Board Certified Nurse Practitioners, at Crossing Rivers Health Clinics, call 608-357-2500.
