I have seen a couple of doctors here over the years and love the way They listen to me and have treated me as a person and for my conditions. Everyone was/is always so polite even if they are not your Doctor/nurse/PA. I always recommend the doctors here.

I just wanted to say thank you to Dr. Thompson and his staff for so quickly responding when I was having issues after shot. Deeply appreciated and can't wait to take and get things done so my hand will be better.

Thanks for installing a patient portal. UNMC has had theirs for years and it is so handy to be able to email questions.
