Dr. Plambeck is by far the best OBGYN doc in the area. He cares about his patients which is evident at each visit. He is super wise, conservative in his approach and treatment, gentle, compassionate, and experienced. He spent a lot of time answering my questions and concerns. He didn’t rush any visit; he really made me feel valued as a person as he sat and talked with me. I trusted him implicitly during my pregnancy and L&D. He helped deliver my beautiful healthy girl last fall and I will use him again if/when the time comes!! Super impressed with him!

Dr. Plambeck is by far the best doctor I've ever been to. He truly cares about you as a person and is always willing to make time for you. He delivered my daughter this past March and it was the best experience I could have dreamed for and it was all thanks to him and his team. He never pressured me into doing anything that I wasn't comfortable with and he was constantly encouraging me throughout. I'm truly grateful for Dr. Plambeck and his team. He is truly one of a kind and I would highly recommend him to anyone. Thank you Dr. Plambeck and team. You made my experience wonderful.

Dr. Plambeck is nothing short of amazing. Moving to Lincoln and having to find a new OB out of hundreds is overwhelming. However, I was lucky enough to stumble upon Dr. Plambeck. He genuinely cares about his patients and makes you feel very comfortable from day one. We welcomed our first baby just over a month ago and with Dr. Plambeck's gentle, comforting demeanor it was a breeze. I highly recommend him to everyone. He takes his time and answers all questions and explains everything in an easy to understand manner. Everyone at his office is very friendly as well, they're always smiling and very welcoming.

I could not have been more pleased with the care I received from Dr. Plambeck throughout my pregnancy. From the beginning, my health and the baby’s was of utmost importance to him. He is a very knowledgeable and caring doctor. From prenatal check ups to delivery, I felt so much peace being in his care. Not only is he an incredible doctor, but his staff is absolutely wonderful as well! So happy I chose him to be my doctor! I strongly recommend his office.

Dr. Plambeck is a wonderful physician and he goes above and beyond what I would have expected. When I was in labor, he continually called the hospital to check on me and he was not even the physician on call. My baby was born at 4:34 in the morning, and he came in to deliver. That meant so much to my husband and me!! He is very caring and takes time in the office to answer all questions. You know he is a great provider when he comes into the room and sits down to speak to you at every visit. I would recommend him to anyone :)

When I went for my first checkup before getting married I was very nervous to go to a Gynecologist. He made the entire process comfortable and easy. He just delivered my baby girl via C-section as well and did a good job of allaying my fears and bringing her into this world.

Dr. Plambeck and his entire staff are the best! Everyone is so friendly, caring, and helpful. The appointments were never rushed. They always made me feel comfortable and important. As a first time mom, they answered all my questions and explained things thoroughly. When I went into labor Dr. Plambeck came to the hospital every hour to check on me. Again, so caring. Should I have a second baby, I will definitely be going back to Dr. Plambeck's office.

Dr. Plambeck is amazing and has tons of experience. Everything about him seems very relaxing and calm, and this greatly helps relieve our tension and anxiety. My wife says she feels his presence gives her the confidence that nothing can go wrong in the delivery room and indeed she delivered naturally within 15 or so minutes with ease. We are coming back to him for our 2nd baby.

Dr. Plambeck is so caring, calm, and patient. He was my OBGYN for my first baby I delivered in March 2017. He is willing to sit and talk with us about questions, concerns and our life instead of leaving the room during a visit quickly. He's a great educator and knows research to explain the pros and cons of options of care. He is reassuring which is what I needed! He would also laugh with my husband and I and felt so natural. I am so blessed to have found him!

Dr. Plambeck is a doctor who truly cares about you. Always enters the room with a smile, sits down and makes you feel special. You never feel rushed or feel like he's in a hurry to leave the room and move on the next patient. The rest of the staff is amazing as well. All the staff is kind, loving and truly care about you and your baby's health.

Dr. Plambeck is genuine, compassionate, and knowledgeable! I have gone to him for 4 years, through two pregnancies and annual visits. He has helped me out with my diagnosis of gestational diabetes, post partum depression & PCOS. What I love about Dr. Plambeck is that he actually sits down with you and listens, he genuinely cares! The nursing & office staff are awesome, I love the fact that I can walk into the office and they remember me after not seeing me for a year and ask about my kids.

We are so incredibly thankful for Dr. Plambeck. He delivered all three of our boys and we never felt more cared for from beginning to the end! You would never know if he was rushed or having a bad day---every visit he treats you as his top priority while you are with him; never hurried; and always so caring and genuine. He is extremely up to date and knowledgeable and truly the best doctor out there!! We would never go anywhere else!!

After having numerous problems, I was referred to Dr. Plambeck. I wish I could have been with him for all of my pregnancies! He takes time with his patients, makes sure everyone is on the same page, and cares for them beyond the baby being born. I am so grateful he helped bring my two miracle girls into the world and was able to be with us through one of the most difficult times in our lives. His staff is an amazingly caring group of women. I can't say enough great things about this group!
