Meet Richard (Rick) Larew, MD

After almost 30 years of practicing medicine in Iowa City, I made the change to a concierge model, inspired by the desire to offer my patients truly personalized care and attention. There is nothing more important than taking the time to connect with patients and listen to their whole story.
