I'm currently seeing Dr. Steve Goebel about a knee replacement he did last Dec. 2018. He has been very good with my follow up visits. Currently I fell on an icy concrete walkway, Friday , Dec. 13, as so many other people did that day. I got in for my knee appt. already scheduled and also had him start to evaluate my shoulder from the fall on the ice. He gave me the time I needed to explain my shoulder issue and had the office schedule an MRI for me in 2 days ! I really appreciated this as I'm in pain from the fall and the faster I get this evaluated the better. Also, it helps to get any medical procedures done before years end, as I've met my annual medical deductible for 2019 already. I have always recommended Ortho Nebraska to friends and colleagues.
