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.

Karen Bohaty and all of the staff at Family Medicine of Lincoln were extremely knowledgeable, professional, helpful and kind. My previous family doctor did not forward my medical records as requested, so definitely not Karen or staff's fault that she didn't know my previous medical history other than what I had shared on the initial forms. Wonderful healthcare provider and fantastic staff. My family and I look forward to being patients at Family Medicine of Lincoln for many years to come.

Karen is a very good provider, as far as I can tell. I'm fairly new. I just wish that she would listen to what I have to say regarding my prescription health. Because I know my body and the thought of having to pay for prescriptions that I know won't work is very irritating. And I would rather hurt listen to what I had to say and the proof in my track record. Other than that, she did great. She tried hard.

Karen actually took the time to get to know me as a new patient. She gave me a lot of resources for some of the questions I had and let me know how I could follow up on anything if I wanted to. She was thorough and genuinely listened to what I had to say. I really appreciated that since doctors appointments can be anxiety-inducing. The nurses were also great! Thanks!

I could not be happier with the care provided, from making my appointment, checking in, and initial assessment provided by the nurse, Sam. Dr. Bohaty is awesome! She is very professional, friendly, down to earth, thorough, and listens. I feel extremely comfortable in her care, she familiarized herself with my medical history, and asked pertinent questions. I would definitely recommend this practice to others! Thank you!!
