Dr. Vest's nurse was very good, very informative, and had great care and so did the doctor. He called me on his day off because I had some concerns and three of them to be exact and he solved all of them and said we would take care of all them on Monday. So I am very impressed with the care. I'm from out of town, and it's good to have while I'm in town here. That's it.

My doctor asked me to. Get the front desk. When I went to check out about a pre authorization. On insurance and when I got there, they told me they didn't do it and it was the same way last time when I visited his coworker and I don't didn't quite understand it. I thought they could do a pre authorization at the front office and call the insurance company. So it's you'll misunderstanding, I soon. Thank you.

I wish he was every kind of doctor so that I could see him for everything. Thanks.

Dr. Vest was absolutely wonderful, did not rush me, answered all my questions. When I was in there, I felt like I was the most important person in the world. He took his time, even asked if I had any other questions after I'd already asked a bunch of them. His nurse was fantastic, very cheerful, just knew what she was doing, was very speedy and getting things done, but you never felt rushed, absolutely fantastic. Front desk was great. I cannot recommend this office enough. It is fantastic.

This was my first visit with Dr. Vest. I was very impressed with his knowledge and friendly, professional manner. He answered all my questions and didn't make me feel that I was hurrying him. I am very satisfied with all the health care providers within the Bryan system and am happy that Dr. Vest and his team have joined the Bryan system.
October 05, 2021
This was my first visit here and I was very pleased.
October 05, 2021
Dr Vest spoke to me in terms i could understand. He explained everything in detail of my care plan for my broken ankle. He also got everything in place for me for after I left and repeated what was going to happen. I would also like to thank his medical assistant who let me ask her additional questions while placing my cast. Thank you!
September 24, 2021
Yeah, he's very good doctor. I'm not real sure of all the staffing my husband had there, and we had a hell of a time with some staff members there. He seems very well, but nobody's ever a 10 in my book. There's always room to grow. So I think he's good, I think some of the staff, some of the people who does this stuff, I feel like I'm being rushed through. I'm not given their full attention, sometimes an extra 30 seconds with me impresses me that you do care. So, I'm not saying all-day event. I'm just saying, not have the jitters ever rush. So anyway, overall, very good experience. Thank you very much.
September 14, 2021
Knowledge, lnformative, and kind

I enjoyed being in a new, spacious medical office. The check-in with Jody was pleasant and went smoothly. Dr Vest was thorough, relaxed, attentive to my comments, questions and concerns. He was patient and not in a rush to get in to the next person. This experience has convinced me that at the present time Dr Vest is the only foot doctor in Lincoln who I will go to and the only one I'll recommend.
July 13, 2021
Very impressive clinic.
July 09, 2021
My doctor was very knowledgeable and worked on my calluses, he gave me the name of Nadine in the office and she worked on those today. And I went in on Friday and Monday. So now that's taken care of and I was very happy.
