A native of Des Moines, Dr. Heather Back returned to central Iowa from an extended stay in Texas where she graduated in 2000, cum laude with degrees in Biology and Spanish from Texas Christian University and received her medical degree in 2005 from the University of North Texas Health Science Center – Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine in Fort Worth. She completed her residencies at the Plaza Medical Center in Fort Worth.

Dr. Back said it was her goal to return to central Iowa. She said, “I have always liked the Madison County area and when the opportunity came to return to this area we took it. I am especially pleased to join the staff of the hospital and clinic in Winterset. It’s a great facility and the staff is top-notch.” She added, “We look forward to our children growing up here and enjoying this wonderful area.” She and her husband have four children and live in rural Madison County.
