About the Author:

Dr. Brian Gartrell always knew he wanted to serve others. During the time he spent with physicians in his hometown of Columbus, Nebraska, it became increasingly clear to him that medicine was where he belonged. Initially, he completed an otolaryngology residency, and then a residency in family medicine, becoming board-certified in both specialties.

His mission is to explain all treatment options and help the patient make the best decision.

“I try to get to know the patient as a person,” Dr. Gartrell said, “and do my best to try to address all of their concerns.”

As a physician who is board-certified in family medicine and otolaryngology, he has interests and expertise in non-surgical ENT problems such as hearing loss, nasal congestion and skin lesions. In addition, Dr. Gartrell enjoys practicing the full spectrum of family medicine.

In his free time, Dr. Gartrell enjoys reading, working out and spending time with friends and family.

Dr. Gartrell is a family medicine doctor at Methodist Physicians Clinic Risen Son.
