Dr. Patera is the best doctor I have ever had. I appreciate her care and attentiveness to my concerns and questions.
September 01, 2021
Dr. Patera is probably the best doctor I've ever used in my life, and I'm 66 years old. She's concerned about her patients, willing to take the time to explain to them, and has very good advice. Just that I'll never trust anybody else as much as I trust her.

Dr Patera is a wonderful, caring, thorough physician!! She listens to me and never judges - she offers support and she genuinely cares about her patients. She needs to be singled out as one of your best providers!! I am so glad that NE internal Medicine is part of BPN because I believe BPN is a wonderful group to work for - I know from personal experience! Please let Dr Patera know how wonderful she is!! Thank you!

Just a friendly professional staff.

From entering the facility, experience with the LPN and with the doctor all went smoothly. I was respected and my questions were all well answered. I would recommend NIM and Dr. Patera specifically to anyone.
July 15, 2021
Dr Patera is simply wonderful. She always takes the time to listen, analyze, and explain. This past visit she even drew a little diagram to help my understand the results of some labs. I would recommend her and the office to anyone.
July 12, 2021
Yes, I would recommend her, and I probably will be back again for another examination. Thank you.

I was so thankful that the receptionist took my call, it was a Friday afternoon and the clinic was closed but Dr. Patera was there and what I was needing medical attention for and I told her, I had been bitten by a dog and they were so kind and helpful, they unlocked the door. She was able to check my wounds and I did not realize that I needed to be on an antibiotic right away and I needed a tetanus booster and they cleaned it

Dr.Patera is amazing. She clearly cares about her patients. She knows our whole family and our history. I have recommended her to family and friends. She is just outstanding!! We also really like the main office staff!

Very good thank you

We usually wait too long before we see the doctor even though we have a scheduled appointment.
June 17, 2021
I enjoyed my visit this time, dr. Patera keeps very close track of my problems and I've had oodles of them. I'm 83 years old and she's right on top of everything that's going on with me. I appreciate her very much and hope that I'm able to deal with her long into the future will talk to you later. Thank you.

Dr Patera is personable, approachable and knowledgeable. Her "bedside" manner is excellent.
June 17, 2021
She did very well I experience quite good care, and everybody was polite and nice and the nurses. And the providers. We're very good to me.
June 15, 2021
Very caring, knowledgeable, and helpful doctor and staff for which I am grateful.
May 28, 2021
Dr Patera is always helpful, Listens, clearly, communicates well, non-dismissive, down to earth, and knowledgeable.
May 27, 2021
Everything was done in a timely manner.
May 17, 2021
Dr. Patera, in my opinion, is an extraordinary physician who listens carefully to her patients and takes the time needed to sort out issues. She is friendly, attentive and up to date on my health issues which certainly is reassuring to me.
May 13, 2021
Since the switch over to Bryan Health Network, Once I'm weighed and the nurse shows me to the room and then notifies Dr. Patera the wait seems to be longer.
May 11, 2021
Dr. Patera is very nice and she's very attentive and I can tell that she cares about my health.
May 10, 2021
Dr. Patera is very thorough and on top of my health history. I trust her and I think she is a very good provider. I'm glad she is my doctor ??.

Missing Donald Schmidt greatly!! Dr Patera (sp??) was excellent, however, and altho I've not been in the office since dr Schmidt left, I hope I will continue to have her as my primary.

I see Dr. Patera and I feel very confident with her knowledge of my background after previously seeing Dr. Schmidt.

I have received excellent care at Nebraska Internal Medicine for 40 + years.

The cortisone shot that I received is not working. I still have a lot of pain. I will be calling your office tomorrow for what we're going to do next. Thank you. Bye.

She visited with Dr. Netz before starting John on a different med. When he did not want him on the other med she changed creams for his rash. She checked his feet for sentation.

When Dr. Policky began thinning his patient load as he neared retirement, I was hesitant to be assigned to another doctor as I was so used to/fond of Dr. Policky. But Dr. Patera was a wonderful surprise and replacement. As a gay man, I wasn't sure how I'd respond to a female doctor, but she was absolutely wonderful from day #1. She's friendly, empathetic, thorough, and reassuringly able. The most frequent comment I've heard about her from former colleagues at St. E's, other patients, and staff at Neb. Int. Med. is "Don't you just LOVE her?" and indeed I do.
April 22, 2021
Since moving to Ne Internal and seeing Dr. Patera, my health and well being has changed for the better. She is the first doctor in 16 years of having diabetes that listened, cared, and put forth the effort to help find solutions to my health issues.
April 22, 2021
Dr Patera is awesome, but she needs a better "nurse" than Sam. Lisa the RN is very kind and efficient, but when Sam was called 3 times in 2 days by Bryan scheduling to clarify an order for my Holter monitor, along with my calls, she never called back. Luckily, I texted Dr Patera and she addressed it right away. Now I have to wait past the weekend to get my heart monitor on, but Sam didn't seem concerned. Lame and scary - makes me feel worried that if I need something, no one will respond!!!!!!!!!
April 22, 2021
This was a new physician visit for me since my previous PCP had just retired. I came to her for a preop physical as well as a first time visit. She was very thorough, appeared quite knowledgeable, answered the questions that I had at the time and let me know that she was available for further questions. She came highly recommended by my previous PCP and after visiting with her I understand why. I look forward to further conversations with her regarding improving my health span.
April 15, 2021
I was a new patient so I don't think she had all my records, if she didn't know something not her fault
April 15, 2021
I did not have to wait long. They were very efficient, and I'm very pleased with my doctor. Thank you.
April 12, 2021
Very one very friendly and understanding. Always very helpful.
