Nicole Ottens, DO Nicole Ottens, DO
Emergency Medicine
SBL Emergency Department

You get the medicine you need to keep yourself professionally
challenged and on top of your game. I feel a sense of family
among my co-workers. We trust each other. My husband
and I were looking for a quiet, safe place to put down roots
and raise our family and we found that here. 

Bernie Ranchero, MD Bernie Ranchero, MD
Family Practice
SBL Ranchero Clinic

One of the things that drew me to Sarah Bush Lincoln
was theability to practice medicine the way I was trained.
After being just here over a year, my practice was full.
While other health systems are eliminating services,
SBL is growing. I think that is a sign of great leadership
and a commitment to the mission of the organization.

Abdur Shakir, MD Abdur Shakir, MD
Oncology
SBL Regional Cancer Center

As soon as I got here, I realized I had the freedom to
practice medicine the way I wanted to and in the best
interest of my patients. As an employed physician, billing,
staffing and insurance issues are taken care of, so I can 
focus on taking care of patients. When I drive home for the day I
reflect back on how thankful I am for my staff, colleges and patients. 

Jeremy Stevens, MD Jeremy Stevens, MD
Orthopedic Surgery
SBL Orthopedics & Sports Medicine

I'm from this area, so my wife and I wanted to raise our family here.
The schools, both public and private are excellent. SBL is a regional
health system. We have patients coming from 50+ miles away for
our services and that makes you feel good, knowing that people value
you and see SBL as a place to come to.
