Meet Steffanie Mortens, DO | UnityPoint Clinic® Family Medicine – Grimes


I’m Steffanie Mortens. I’m a family
practice physician over at the UnityPoint clinic in Grimes. A lot of people think
that family practice is very mundane. You see the same things, but it’s actually
not. You see a whole variety. I see orthopedic problems. I see women’s health problems. I see common colds. I see cardiac problems. I love my job because I get to help
people every day. During my free time I like to hang out with my family. I have a
20-month-old daughter and two dogs. One that’s a couple months old and one
that’s two-years-old. We like to go boating a lot, and of course I’m a
girl, I like to shop. I was a dancer for many years. I did tap-dancing, ballet
dancing, jazz, a little bit of African dance and belly
dancing. If I hadn’t gone into medicine, I probably would have gone into either
architecture or interior design. I just always been kind of that artistic-type
person. But that’s what’s great about medicine is you can kind of take the
knowledge that you have and create a tool to help you get to be the healthiest
person that you can be.
