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.

Very glad that I joined Dr. Head's MDVIP group as some health problems were
found that probably would have gone un-noticed without his thorough examination.

from George & Nancy March 29, 2017 for G. Gilbert Head, MD

Dr. Head has been our family physician for thirty plus years. We are confident in his judgment and know that he truly cares about his patients. Not only do we see him at the office but we also belong to the same health club and consider him a good friend.

We have faith in him, trust him and with my husbands diabetes and 2… See more

from Don in NE September 21, 2015 for G. Gilbert Head, MD

I have been under Dr Heads care for many years and I debated making the change when he changed his large workload and large number of patients and joined up with MDVIP. This allowed him and his staff the extra time and resources to give me a very thorough physical checkup. I credit this complete physical for finding a cancerous tumor in my bladder early and to get me on a treatment plan… See more
