My Approach to Care

As a family practice nurse practitioner, I love my profession and caring for people of all ages and in all health situations whether that is helping a patient remain healthy or treating a wide variety of health problems and illnesses. I think of each and every patient as if they were my own family, and look forward to meeting you and assisting you in your health care needs and goals.

My nursing background provides me with the knowledge to treat patients holistically. And, my advanced training as a nurse practitioner provides the skills to diagnose, treat, monitor health conditions, interpret test results and prescribe medications to meet all of your health care needs. I enjoy helping people achieve and maintain a healthy lifestyle, providing wellness physicals and taking the time to visit with each patient about steps you can take to remain healthy. As a certified medical examiner for the Department of Transportation (DOT), I provide the physicals and paperwork required for all DOT drivers.

I earned my diploma degree from Bryan School of Nursing in 1999, a masters of science in nursing from the University of Nebraska Medical Center in the Family Nurse Practitioner Program in 2007, and worked 17 years in hospital, family practice clinic and ER settings in rural Nebraska.

Initial visit, very good impression.
February 21, 2018
I thought Karen was awesome. I was very nervous about the appointment. I have quite a health history and I'm a little nervous about being judged and I thought Karen was listened, she was extremely caring, and I definitely found my new healthcare provider. She just seems like she knows what she's doing, she listened carefully, and answered all the questions, and was very knowledgeable.
February 15, 2018
She's very pleasant to be around, she was very nice, I would recommend her to anybody.
February 08, 2018
Everyone was super friendly and listened attentively and really seemed to care about what I had to say.
February 05, 2018
Yes, I enjoyed my 1st appointment with Dr. Bohaty and I felt very welcomed and a very warm conversation. It was very good. I look forward to getting to know her better and I like the staff too, the people from there. Thank you, bye.

I switched medical providers after receiving less than splendid care from my local rural area clinic. I was extremely impressed by the professionalism and friendliness of the staff at Bryan. I have major doctor phobia, but I instantly felt at ease here and very well taken care of. Karen Bohaty is both knowledgeable and very easy to talk to. I'm so thrilled to finally have a provider I trust!

The medical staff is wonderful! Karen the NP is fantastic! She always takes time during the visit and is thorough, in addition she is kind and caring. Her MA Kelly is always warm and engaging.
January 23, 2018
Didn’t solve problems yet but she couldn’t have been better.
January 23, 2018
Karen is the most wonderful caring doctor I have ever had. She always takes the time to answer all of my questions and has never made me feel rushed during an appointment, even when I add things that were not in my "to be seen for" information.
January 10, 2018
Family Medicine of Lincoln has always delivered excellent care for me! I did not see Doctor Sayers this time but was seen by a Nurse Practitioner Karen Bohaty. She represented well Family Medicine of Lincoln. Very caring, very polite, professional answered all my questions and I did not feel rushed. Ms. Bohaty stood out as an extreme example for others employees to emulate.
January 08, 2018
The assistant told the nurse practitioner my symptoms and I had never mentioned a single thing about a symptom to the assistant and then when the provider came in, she just automatically said I had the flu and that she had told her my symptoms and she didn't listen to me at all of what my symptoms were. So I was treated for the flu, was given Tamiflu and it upset my stomach and caused me to have diarrhea, I've stopped that and I believe I have a sinus infection and not the flu. So no I would not seeing that doctor again, so for future it's important to listen, you know, even though there is a ton of flu cases going around doesn't mean everybody that walks in, has that.
January 05, 2018
This was my first visit with Dr. Bohaty and she was extremely attentive and answered all the questions that I had. I'm extremely excited to have her as my primary care physician.
January 03, 2018
Initially I was hesitant about seeing Karen Bohaty, NP. I normally see Dr. Dresbach, but on short notice, his schedule was already full. Ms. Bohaty and Dr. Dresbach had already discussed my plan of care and she was completely informed on my situation at the time of my appointment. She is a great addition to the team, and I now have zero hesitation seeing her in the future. She was very polite, thorough, and patient with all my questions.
January 02, 2018
Karen Bohaty is very nice and she's a wonderful nurse practitioner, she knows her job very well and does it very well.
December 29, 2017
Great experience! Kelley and Karen provided excellent service as always! Thank you
December 29, 2017
I seen my doctor's nurse practitioner she was awesome. She talk to me like a human being not just somebody to see and hurry up. That's how I feel when I go to the doctors but she was awesome so I had a really good visit there this time
December 22, 2017
I was very happy with the care I received.

I'm still having problems sleeping and they took away my Melatonin and I'm just taking Tylenol PM and I'm still not sleeping.
November 28, 2017
Karen Bohaty had very good bedside manner and she worked very well with both of my kids and made them feel at ease, so she was able to access them very well and I was very happy with our visit. Thank you.
November 28, 2017
I happy with with with the attention and help i have from Karen Bohaty she show care and concern with my help.
November 17, 2017
I wanted to thank the staff, particularly Kelly, for telling me that she wanted me to see Karen Bohaty while I was there. They squeezed me into the schedule and I did see Karen. That was so appreciated, especially since I stopped to just pick up inhalers, but when I told Kelly about the pain I had experienced on Thurs. eve and Fri. a.m., she wanted me to be seen. They all go out of their way to help and it is so comforting. Thank you all once again, especially Kelly and Karen Bohaty.
November 16, 2017
Karen Bohaty is a tremendous provider and I'm thankful.
November 15, 2017
She listens to the patient and is very thorough with getting to know them, and understanding what their condition is.
November 15, 2017
Awesome experience from entering the waiting room until I left. The nurse Amy was sincere in all of her interactions with me.
November 08, 2017
They got me in the same day as well as spent great quality time discussing my care. She was very caring and informative and helped me greatly. Everyone from the nurse to the PA to lab were all great!
November 01, 2017
The care provided was outstanding. You got us in, in a timely fashion. I love Family Medicine of Lincoln.
October 31, 2017
The CMA Kelly was wonderful, but Karen didn't seem to know my medical history. Didn't seem to take my concerns very seriously. Didn't take the fact that I've had kidney stones previously and know what they seem like and how they present for me. She didn't take any of that into consideration, I felt like she didn't listen.
October 26, 2017
Positive experience.
October 26, 2017
Kelly & Karen Bohaty are always the Best ! I always feel so well taken care of. Keep up the GREAT work that you do !
October 26, 2017
This was the first time I've met Dr. Bohaty, and mainly we went over my blood profile results I receive through my employer. My goal is for her to become my general physician, as my current physician is retiring at the end of this year.
October 24, 2017
Everyone I encountered was pleasant and helpful.
October 23, 2017
I'm impressed with the pleasant demeanor of the entire staff. I am very glad I chose Bryan Health.
October 17, 2017
I felt very well respected and cared for through out my visit and subsequent treatment.
October 10, 2017
Felt rushed through visit. New staff being trained during the process added to somewhat unorganized visit. 2 questions were asked: is there any problems you want to talk about? Do you want a flu shot? I had an exam 2 years prior to this visit and the staff said the test performed on me 2 years ago was insufficient. I wonder why I wasn't contacted earlier to re-do the test for an accurate sample. I think our healthcare providers are overworked and overwhelmed.
October 09, 2017
I'm so thankful for her. She's very nice and kind, and she listens to me when I have pain, and she tries to explain what's happened, she tries to help me. And yeah, she's perfect. Thank you.
October 03, 2017
The staff was pleasant & friendly.
October 02, 2017
The fact Karen is patient(when i the patient ??) and show care and respect concern. She take her time asking me question and answer question, it make feel appreciated.
September 29, 2017
I have always received great care at this office regardless of the provider.
September 25, 2017
Yes, she made me feel very comfortable there. I am actually going to switch providers and have her be my doctor now.
September 25, 2017
Great service and excellent care. Always professional and they take the time listen. Karen is a super addition to this office!
September 21, 2017
I always have a great experience from check-in through nurses and doctors.
September 20, 2017
Yes, I just wanted say I've avoided going to doctors for nearly a decade simply because I always felt like I was being talked down to and always felt like it was their way or the highway. This is quite the opposite and it is greatly appreciated, and it will probably do a lot to curb a great deal of the health problems I have had over the past couple of years. So I really appreciate it. Thank you.
September 01, 2017
Lincoln family medicine is great. All the providers are wonderful and I would trust any one of them with mine or my family's health care. I would recommend them to anyone and everyone. Great practice!
September 01, 2017
Very timely and the provider spent a lot of time making sure all my questions were answered.
August 31, 2017
(INAUDIBLE) she's a very nice person and she gives me all the help I needed, and she listens carefully (INAUDIBLE) medical problem, and she did all she can to give me all the help and (INAUDIBLE), so she's so good. Thank you.
August 31, 2017
love the group..
August 29, 2017
Hi. I would have really liked to have known what my tests results were. I know there was a few things done for testing, and I really didn't know how things were until I called around and got my own answers, but that would be really helpful. Unless it's not, and I didn't know if that was the case. I did get the blood sent to me, but I didn't know a lot about the blood. But other than that, I thought it was a great experience to come in to Dr. Bohaty. Thank you.
August 29, 2017
I think Karen is an excellent RN. She is very attentive to everything that I say. She answers all my questions, she always asks if there's anything else I need or want to discuss, she is very professional and very friendly, and I love her. So that's all I want to say. Thank you.
August 28, 2017
I love meeting with my provider at Bryan Family Medicine of Lincoln. They always listen, education and provide me options for my health. I trust the care she provides, and appreciate everything she does.
August 28, 2017
Karen Bohaty is one of the best medical providers I have ever seen. She makes a real effort to remember things about her patients and never makes me feel like she's in a rush to get out of the room even when I know they're busy. I may be moving to the north end of Lincoln soon but plan to keep her as my primary care provider because her service is so good, even though it will be a longer drive.
August 22, 2017
Very positive
August 21, 2017
I had orders to drink oral contrast 13 hours before Ct scan. I drank the contrast. I arrived for my scan on time as scheduled by my provider. Before I even saw my provider for my scheduled Ct scan, the registration ladies told me that it wasn't covered / verified by insurance. I was told I would need to wait for an undisclosed amount of time to see if it would be verified. I was told I could sign a form and proceed with scan if I agreed to pay for it incase insurance would not. I left the appointment without the procedure as I didn't have extra time in my schedule or budget for an ordered scan I would have to pay for out of pocket entirely. This was a costly mistake on my part, Risking my healthcare to an organization who wasn't prepared when I arrived. I decided to reschedule the scan, only because I felt I needed to know my results.
August 18, 2017
The last 4-5 visits have not been able to get in with my physician. It has been either the nurse practioner or a partner. Would like to see my own physician more.
August 14, 2017
I really like Karen. I think she does a great job. She's very personable and listens very well, and she will spend extra time with you to educate you about what you need to know. Unfortunately, the front desk people at this place are not polite to deal with.
August 02, 2017
I think it would be great if the people at the front desk would let you know when she is available when you call and ask to go to your doctor and she is not available, because I appreciate the care I got from her, and I did appreciate the timely manner in which I was treated and got in. Thank you!
July 27, 2017
I am very impressed with the level of compassion and professionalism of the entire office and would recommend them to anyone.
June 09, 2017
Think she and her assistant are the best!
June 09, 2017
I really like & trust Karen Bohaty
May 01, 2017
I have always had a fantastic experience with this office, from check in to finish. Everyone is very friendly
March 27, 2017
I definitely felt Bohaty had more caring 'bedside manner' than Heckman. Also Kelly was helpful at the front desk where others at front desk seemed to not know what to do when I telephoned.
March 24, 2017
Wow. Great care by a caring professional!!!
