My experience with Dr. Olberding was nothing but exceptional. I’ve used him twice removing lymph nodes from my armpit because of melanoma. He’s very knowledgeable and personable. I wouldn’t recommend any other surgeon other than Dr. Brad Olberding.

My husband had an emergency appendectomy three and a half weeks ago. We called for the follow up and was told Dr. Olberding would be calling at a certain date and time. Those times came and went and never heard back. He started having extreme pain again, three weeks out from surgery like something had ripped or was trying to come out. He called the office and again didn’t hear anything back. We ended up back at the ER. Went to see Dr. Olberding for follow up visit (finally) today and didn’t address my husbands pain at all. My husband is 28 years old, he should be able to heal up fine and quickly. Very disappointed in Dr. Olberding and the surgery and the follow up care my husband received.

I had abdominal pain and saw my main doctor at Syracuse. He sent me to the emergency room and couple hours later, Dr. Olberding showed up at the Syracuse hospital to start checking me to see where I was hurting at. I showed him. He said, "I think it might be gallstones, or a bad gallbladder. Ultra sound, nothing showed up. Then a test on the gallbladder, alone. There was the problem. He wanted to get it out of me that next week. Perfect bedside manners! Would recommend him to everyone.

Pray that you are lucky enough to get Dr. Brad Olberding as a surgeon if you have emergency surgery in Lincoln, NE. He is the most outstanding surgeon in the state & beyond! He is kind & compassionate, but mostly his expertise & skill in his field of surgical procedures is what counts. Dr. Olberding actually had drawn a diagram of my procedure & went through it twice with me! He asked me about my comfort & let me know if there was "anything" I needed to let him know. Thank you, Dr. Olberding.

I couldn't say enough kind things about this man. My father had esophageal cancer, and surgery was about his only option for extending his life. Dr. Olberding was kind, great at explaining things, patient with all of our questions, etc. Because of him, and another thoracic surgeon, my dad is alive today.

I did not see Dr. Olberding until being admitted to Bryan East. He was very professional and personable. He answered my questions in a way that I could understand. He made personal connections and took the time to listen.

I recently had surgery under the guidance of Dr. Olberding. He is a FANTASTIC surgeon and has wonderful bedside manner! I also feel it important to add that the entire staff at General Surgery Associates are wonderful! No one likes surgery, however, you will be in excellent hands under the care of Dr. Olberding, his nurses, fellow surgeons-- everyone associated with General Surgery Associates. A big "Thank You!" to everyone involved in my care!

I had hernia surgery done by a different doctor and was in continuous pain after the surgery. The other doctor couldn't figure out why I still had pain after surgery. Dr. Olberding figured out everything in a very short time re-did the surgery. He was outstanding I've never felt better his patient care and bedside manner's are the best of any doctor I've ever dealt with. I highly recommend him.

I had an emergency appendectomy this week. I thought Dr. Olberding was very professional and nice, he explained everything that he was going to do in a friendly and concise manner. This was my first time in a hospital or having surgery and I was rather unnerved. He was very patient and very competent. My experience with him was top notch.

I do NOT reccomend Dr. Brad Olberding. Very unprofessional. Very disrespectful. Uncaring. Conceited. A warning should be posted against him. He went against my wishes completely on the operating table and was arrogant and boastful about it. Do not trust this man. He is young and inexperienced. Most all the patients needs and wants mean nothing to him. Less than poor.
