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 your health goals, 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 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 MDVIP-affiliated practice also offers services, including comprehensive, advanced health screenings and diagnostic tests, that go far beyond those found in concierge medicine practices. 

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.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Head

from Dan in NE March 30, 2020 for G. Gilbert Head, MD

Dr. Head has been my primary doctor for over 20 years, and has seen me through some of the most difficult times of my life. I was diagnosed with cancer in 2006, and Dr. Head was there from the beginning to the end of my 18 month cure. I lost my wife to cancer in 2011, and again Dr. Head was there all the way to offer support and sympathy during another difficult and trying time.

from Eleanor in NE March 13, 2020 for G. Gilbert Head, MD

So glad to be a relatively new Dr. Head patient. Joined MDVIP a year ago after experiencing a health care error that could have meant serious consequences. My husband is a patient of Dr. Head’s and encouraged me to join. Dr. Head is very warm and personable, genuinely caring for his patients. I feel more confident in my healthcare needs than I have in decades. Woot woot to Dr. Head!

from George in NE March 11, 2020 for G. Gilbert Head, MD

I have been a patient of Dr. Head since the 80’s. A couple years ago I had back surgery and severe nerve damage. I spent thirty days in a rehab facility learning to walk again and another three months doing outpatient rehab. During my thirty days in the facility Dr. Head personally visited me and raised my spirits. I consider him not only my doctor by also a friend.

My annual physical always includes a PSA check, of course, since I am "of a certain age." Five years ago Dr. Head noticed that the numbers had increased considerably since the last test. He is well-acquainted with almost every physician in Omaha, particularly the specialists, so I was immediately set up with an appointment with a leading urologist. On November 4th that fall I had… See more

from Gary in NE February 29, 2020 for G. Gilbert Head, MD

Thanks to Dr. Head for his care and attention to the needs of his patients and positive outlook for our concerns.
When moving to Omaha and researching MDVIP doctors in the area Dr. Head stood out and we chose to enter his practice after a visit and have not regretted it.
His attention to our medical needs including referrals for other doctors when necessary is remarkable.

from Chris in NE March 15, 2018 for G. Gilbert Head, MD

When we moved from Omaha, I feared changing a doctor more than I feared anything else. My husband was not easy to convince to even see one when we lived in St. Louis. My husband assured me he would be fine but I was not convinced. The minute we met Dr. Head and his staff my husband was sold. Dr. Head has been attentive and very caring and made the transition very smooth. We feel we hit… See more

from Susan in NE March 8, 2018 for G. Gilbert Head, MD

Dr. Gilbert Head has been our family physician for many years. Our grown children remember him as being gentle and kind. I have the greatest respect for Dr. Head's professionalism and knowledge. He takes time to address my concerns and I never feel rushed. In 2012, he discovered my cancer and referred me to an oncologist that was top in her field. It has been quite a journey of ups and… See more

from Dan in NE March 6, 2018 for G. Gilbert Head, MD

Dr. Head is always there when I need him. I like the fact that I can pick up the phone, and speak with him personally. If ever I need immediate help with a health issue, he makes the time to see me right away. It is well worth every penny I spend on MDVIP to have that type of personal service. Thanks Gil!
