Thank you for entrusting us with your care.

Effective April 30, 2022, we announce our retirement from active practice and the closing of Surgical Care, PC.

It has been an honor and a pleasure to serve patients in Lincoln and the surrounding areas for the past 41 years, the last 25 years with our wonderful nurse practitioner, Kelly Fields.

We also want to thank the people who helped us with your surgical care. It is quite astounding the number of people involved daily in working to make your care as safe as possible.

Emergency care should be sought at the hospitals. They always have a surgeon on call.
