G. Gilbert Head, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

As a family physician, my role in your healthcare is multilayered. I focus on acute and chronic conditions, as well as wellness and prevention. With every patient, I desire to build a relationship based on trust, mutual respect and open communication. This allows us to develop a personalized plan to help you achieve optimal health, and it requires commitment, caring, careful listening and time. As a private doctor, I take the time to listen, and I truly care about my patients. I will help you stay on the path to wellness and always advocate for your well-being.

I have had the privilege caring for patients for over 30 years. I have learned that the need for individualized care, similar to concierge medicine, in an unhurried and uninterrupted setting focused on each unique patient, is of paramount importance. As an MDVIP-affiliated primary care physician, I am fortunate for the opportunity to embrace this innovative approach to medicine. I am available 24 hours a day to provide care and offer advice.

My specialized interests are in adult medicine, women’s health issues, primary prevention, heart disease, cholesterol disorders, diabetes and obesity. I am affiliated with Alegent Lakeside Hospital and Nebraska Methodist Hospital and proudly serve patients in Omaha, Douglas County and Sarpy County, as well as southeast Nebraska and southwest Iowa.
