I probably saw 20 people 19 were extremely nice and one was ok. It would be good if people who push the wide wheel chairs knew which bathrooms worked for them. It took a while to find one then they wouldn't let me go until I filled out paperwork

I am a patient of Dr. Galigan but saw P.A. John Nickolite at Ortho Urgent Care on Friday, Oct. 12 because of knee pain. I was treated with respect and was very impressed with the kind and professional manner in which the nurses and John Nickolite listened to me and provided medical care for me. I will keep my existing appointment with Dr. Galigan on Friday, Oct 19th, for follow up care and discussion about the arthritis in my knee. I have actually been a patient at Ortho (West) now Ortho Nebraska since 2004. I had a total knee replacement done by Dr. Newman and shoulder surgery done by Dr. Kirk Hutton.
