Gundersen welcomes new physician at Waukon Clinic

Gundersen Waukon Clinic welcomes family medicine physician Coley Barbee, MD, to their team caring for people in Northeast Iowa.

Dr. Barbee provides the full scope of family care for patients of all ages. This includes well-woman care, contraception management, preventative care and chronic disease management. Dr. Barbee’s practice includes obstetrics, and she will help patients deliver their babies in town, at Veterans Memorial Hospital.

She has lived, worked and studied in some of the United States’ largest cities - such as New York City and Boston - but was born and raised in the small town of Cherryfield, Maine. The town has roughly a third of Waukon’s population.

"I grew up in a small rural community and always knew I wanted to provide primary care to rural residents" says Dr. Barbee. "The Midwest is a great place to practice family medicine and though I miss my home state of Maine (especially the ocean) I am excited to join this community."

She’s excited about serving the people of Waukon, and working with a great set of folks at Gundersen Waukon Clinic.

"I was drawn to Gundersen’s mission of quality patient care," says Dr. Barbee. "Gundersen gives ample opportunity to provide full spectrum family medicine in rural communities and is committed to rural clinics."

When she’s not busy caring for patients, Dr. Barbee likes to take advantage of the great outdoors. She especially enjoys hiking with her dog Tucker, kayaking, and recently took up scuba diving. She also enjoys cooking and traveling.

To schedule an appointment with Dr. Barbee or any Gundersen Waukon Clinic clinician, call (563) 568-3000.
