Growing up in a small town, Dr. Jeffrey Gartrell was fortunate to have mentors in the medical field that allowed him to visit and shadow with them. This played a large role in his decision to pursue medicine, as well as his desire to build relationships with patients and their families. Now a family medicine doctor, his mission is to make sure every patient is heard and to guide them in making the best decisions for their health.
"I want to get to know people, what was going on in their lives and get a feel for their whole family," said Dr. Gartrell. "This was the perfect field for me because I can coordinate all of their care but also get to know people as a person, not a medical condition."
Dr. Gartrell graduated from medical school and completed his family medicine residency at the University of Nebraska Medical Center. He is a family medicine doctor at Methodist Physicians Clinic Regency.
In his free time, Dr. Gartrell loves spending time with his family. An avid sports and fitness fan, he also enjoys staying fit and active by working out as well as catching up on his favorite football and basketball teams.
