Facility Overview

Enjoy a family-friendly, small-town atmosphere at the Essentia Health-West Duluth Clinic. Our clinic is easy to navigate and offers both primary and specialty care. Our providers and staff also get to know you by name. So, whether you’re coming to see your regular doctor or someone new, you’ll always feel welcome.

The West Duluth Clinic joined what’s now Essentia Health in 1983. We moved to a new building in 2004 to expand and provide you with even more services close to home. We’re an outpatient department of Essentia Health-Duluth. You’ll find us in the Denfeld High School area at the corner of Grand Avenue and North 42nd Avenue West.

Primary Care for All Ages

Everyone needs a primary care provider. Partner with a provider who can help you stay healthy throughout your life.

Family medicine providers may offer prenatal care as part of their services—even if they don’t deliver babies. Call to learn if this service is currently offered.
