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.

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 Dee in NE March 7, 2018 for G. Gilbert Head, MD

I've known Gil Head for over 30 years. We've both grown old together (although I hate to admit that!) and since he's become an MDVIP Doctor, seems like we've become much closer. He's motivated me to become more healthy by example and knowledge. I appreciate the time he spends with me and hope to continue the relationship for many years.

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!

from Alvin in NE March 4, 2018 for G. Gilbert Head, MD

Dr. Head is always their when needed. Very caring & personable, we trust no one else with our health care. Also the staff are excellent.

from Jim and Cathy in NE March 4, 2018 for G. Gilbert Head, MD

Dr. Head makes us feel genuinely listened to and cared for. We feel very confident and comfortable with him. He makes the experience pleasant!
We feel he is very knowledgeable and actively pursues something if he doesnt know the answer.
We feel very secure and taken care of. It is comforting to know someone cares!

from Dan in NE March 4, 2018 for G. Gilbert Head, MD

I grew up in a small town back when doctors still made house calls and stopped by or called to follow up. The most important aspect of my experience with MDVIP and Dr. Head is this same type of personal, professional care from Gil and his entire staff.

from Ellen in NE March 2, 2018 for G. Gilbert Head, MD

Dr Head is a very friendly, professional individual. He has been our family doctor for a long time. I enjoy the MDVIP service that he is now providing. I feel more informed about my physical well being. I like how he suggests steps I can take to continue a healthy life.

from GARY in NE March 2, 2018 for G. Gilbert Head, MD

As recent newcomers to Omaha we were searching for a new doctor using MDVIP and with research found Dr. Head. We visited with him and were very impressed with his demeanor and knowledge and knew we wanted to become a part of his practice. He has been on top of health issues and appropriate referrals when needed and provides great follow up in a timely manner.
You can see that we are… See more

from Rick in NE March 2, 2018 for G. Gilbert Head, MD

It was a crazy week, my wife and I were very busy and our daughter came down with strep throat. I text Dr. Head at 8:00 p.m. in the evening asking for an appointment first thing the next morning. Dr. Head immediately replied with an 8:00 A.M. appointment time. My daughter and I were out of Dr. Heads office in 20 minutes, with a script, and I was home with my daughter, scripted filled by 9:00 A… See more
