My appointment was at 10:30 AM, and I did not get into an exam room until noon. That was a 90 minute wait. The office staff was polite and kind and did what they could. I got the impression that Dr. Bonness always is behind schedule and I was told not to show up late to my next appointment but rather bring something to work on while I waited.I understand things can happen, but a 90 minute wait is irresponsible and does not show concern to patients.

I was told at the Methodist ER that I did not have any broken bones or a dislocation. The staff at OrthoNebraska got me in the door within 30 mins of making my appointment. Dr. Bonness' staff reviewed prior xrays and saw there is a definite break in my humerus. Dr. Bonness requested new xrays to make sure the break did not move, which was great. He could have called it good by reviewing the prior but took that extra step. Dr Bonness and his nurse took the time to answer my questions including treatments, time off work, future physical therapy.. etc. I was so grateful to find a doctor that wasn't rushed and was able to put my mind at ease.
