My Approach to Care

Cardiothoracic surgery grew on me in my last year of medical school at Harvard. Being around those who have done great things, I realized that they’re normal people. What really sets them apart is their passion and engagement. After finishing my training, my wife and I looked all over the country, coast to coast and we love the excellence in cardiothoracic surgery and cardiology that was here in Lincoln. I am proud to be a part of this group. We take great care of patients.

Dr Oakes was at the hospital in surgery and took the time to come to the clinic to see me as a new patient. Truly appreciated that act of kindness. God bless Dr Oakes!
