The Mabel Clinic has recently undergone some positive changes. Thanks to the clinic partnering with Winneshiek Medical Center, they have been able to expand their hours of operation to better meet the needs of Mabel residents and surrounding towns. “The goal was to improve patient access in southeast Minnesota and northeast Iowa and to bring healthcare closer to home,” said Kirsten Wyffels, Mabel Clinic’s Doctor of Nursing Practice.

The clinic’s previous hours operation were very limited, only being open Mondays and Wednesdays from 8:30 a.m. to noon. Now the clinic is available to patients Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Norma Dahl, a resident of Canton appreciates the expanded hours and the kindness of the medical staff. “I can get in to be seen on short notice,” says Dahl. She also raved about Kirsten Wyffels saying, “She works with me. She takes the time to be with me and get to know me. She is genuinely concerned about her patients.”

The feedback the clinic has received has been overwhelmingly positive thanks in large part to the caring staff. Kathy Petersburg works alongside Wyffels as an Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner. SueAnn Kinneberg and Jeff Barry serve as Licensed Practical Nurses and Mindy Osmonson works in Lab & Office Support. There is also additional staffing support from Winneshiek Medical Center. People in particularly appreciate not having to travel a long distance to receive quality care.

Kirsten Wyffels said, “We have seen a positive growth in patients serviced and can offer same day appointment availability along with immunizations, anticoagulant support, and nurse only blood pressure monitoring.” Wyffels added, “In addition to family practice services, we also offer laboratory services on site, including Walkin Wellness Testing, a lowcost option for people who want to monitor their own health in an easy and convenient way without a doctor’s written order. The results are mailed directly to the patient and not billed through insurance. Also, athletic physicals are available anytime and cost is $30 paid at time of service.”

Having a partnership with Winneshiek Medical Center also connects patients to additional services if needed. Wyffels stated, “We have the ability to refer patients to specialists located at Winneshiek Medical Center and other facilities as needed. We are fortunate that Winneshiek Medical Center offers ex .....
