Meet Our Doctors and Staff

Nebraska Hematology-Oncology provides comprehensive treatment coordination, guidance, and support for patients and their families who are facing the challenges of cancer and cancer treatment.

If desired, we can help coordinate all aspects of care including the chemotherapy treatments delivered at our clinic as well as the other oncology treatments which may be prescribed (such as radiation therapy, surgery, etc.)

Our staff is well-established in Lincoln's cancer treatment network and we make sure each patient gets the treatment they need when they need it, whether through our office or through other specialists.

Caring relationships
NHO staff stability allows patients, nurses, physicians, and staff to become familiar and comfortable with each other, which reduces anxiety and uncertainty.

Accessibility of physicians
Because chemotherapy treatments are administered in our clinic where the physicians practice, an oncologist familiar with your treatment is always available to consult with you and address treatment issues as they arise.

Open communication
We care about our patients and are open to their viewpoints on treatment. In addition, our patients are welcome to see any of our physicians to find the right personality match.
