New Patients

Thank you for your interest in scheduling an appointment with MedZou. In order to ensure that you receive the best possible medical care, we screen all new patients through the Family Health Center (FHC). Please call the FHC and ask for Anna Hoskins or another social worker and tell them that you need to be screened for MedZou.

You may call the FHC at (573) 214-2314 or (877) 677-4342. The FHC will then provide MedZou with the contact information for all screened patients, so that we can contact you to schedule your visit.

Please remember to bring the following to your appointment:

  • Photo ID (if available).
  • List of all your current medications.
  • Income information (see below).

Income Information

We ask MedZou patients to bring income information to their appointments. We know that this is a sensitive topic for patients, so it is your decision if you would like to bring your financial information. Your income information will not affect your medical care at MedZou. However, it can help you obtain expensive medications for free through the Patient Assistance Programs (PAP) offered by drug companies. Some forms of income information accepted by drug companies are listed below, with the best forms listed first.

  • Last year’s federal tax returns (Form 1040). If you filed taxes last year but don’t have a copy of your form, we can help you obtain a copy.
  • Last month’s wage statements.
  • Proof of unemployment.
  • Proof of food stamps.

Hours and Services

The MedZou primary care clinic is open every Thursday from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm. We also offer three specialty clinics monthly. They include:

  • Diabetes Clinic: We provide a “one-stop-shop” for diabetes patients by having both endocrinologists and eye doctors on site.
  • Dermatology Clinic: Dermatologists will be available to both diagnose and treat many skin disorders. Biopsies can also be done at the clinic, as needed.
  • Musculoskeletal (MSK) Clinic: Physical medicine and rehabilitation physicians will be available to help patients with bone, muscle, tissue, and nervous system problems. If needed, they can prescribe physical therapy and/or help with some forms of pain.

In addition to the above clinics, the services* we provide include:

  • Free primary and preventative medical care.
  • Free pharmacy consultation on prescription medications.
  • Free generic medications from Hy-Vee on West Broadway
  • Patient Assistance Program that help patients obtain expensive, name-brand medications for free.

  • Longitudinal care for patients with chronic disease and complex social issues, especially those with diabetes.
  • Outreach to local homeless shelters and social services, including patient screening and education.
  • Spanish interpreters for Spanish-speaking patients.
  • Patient advocacy and medical care coordination, especially for patients with limited financial and social resources. This includes referrals to specialists and imaging that we cannot provide at MedZou.

Unfortunately, we are unable to provide services from emergency health care or prescriptions for controlled substance.

*Please note that while we do our best to provide comprehensive, free medical care to patients, we do not provide every service at every clinic. We pledge to do our best to keep everything as free or low-cost to each patient, but we are not always obligated to provide all of these services free-of-charge. This is especially true with medication. Please talk with your health care provider at MedZou about any concerns you might have.
