Patient Comments (2)
in Lincoln, NE |
Dr. Oakes and his staff put me at easy when explaining my open heart surgery. He was kind and compassionate. He was very willing to answer any questions and didn't act like I was taking too much of his time. He also took the time to talk to and meet with all of my family after surgery. He stopped in my room every day while in the hospital, which included both weekend days. He seems to be extremely committed to his profession and his patients.

A competent doctor with a genuinely compassionate human side who only wants the best for his patients. Even though my stepfather did not survive his heart surgery, Dr. Oakes went above and beyond the standard of care.
