Bluestem Health Piedmont Clinic

Bluestem Health Piedmont Clinic is located at Bryan Health East Medical Plaza, 1500 S. 48th Street, Suite 41 offers full-scope, high-quality family medicine services. Learn a little more about our Piedmont Clinic providers, Andrew Shahan, MD, and Reba Cooksley, DNP, APRN-NP.

Primary care medicine addresses health issues of all types for all ages, unlike other specialties that focus on specific organs, conditions, or age groups. Because of this, primary care physicians see almost every type of medical concern.

Our goal at Bluestem Health is to offer primary care services to patients who may need additional support that is not offered in other primary care practices. We want to enhance our services so that patients who need that extra attention are given it in a caring and compassionate manner.

To bring these primary care services to more patients and to better serve the Lincoln community, Bluestem Health continues to grow. The most recent addition to the Bluestem Health family is our Piedmont Clinic located at Bryan Health East Medical Plaza, 1500 S. 48th Street, Suite 41.

The Piedmont Clinic providers, Andrew Shahan, MD, and Reba Cooksley, DNP, APRN-NP, offer full-scope, high-quality family medicine services. Let’s learn a little more about them.
