As a parent, there are so many concerns that cross your mind on a daily basis. From the minute you learn you are pregnant, you are probably thinking about a dozen things at once:

  • What diapers should I buy?
  • Should I breastfeed or formula feed?
  • What car seat is the best?
  • How do I find the right daycare?
  • How do I find a family practice clinic to care for my growing family?
  • The best advice we can give is to ask your most trusted family and friends about your concerns and make establishing a relationship with your family practice doctor a priority. Your family practice doctor can give you healthcare advice to keep your growing family on the right path.

    What is an Integrated Family Medicine Clinic?

    At Bluestem Health, we have several integrated family practice clinics. That means we care about your overall well being -- your medical, behavioral, and dental healthcare, as well as resources for family success. We have four locations in Lincoln, Nebraska, each of which is a family practice clinic.

    Thompson Family Practice

    Our family practice clinic in the South part of Lincoln, NE is the Thompson Clinic. This family practice clinic began in 1985 as Richard J. Thompson, MD Family Practice.

    For 30 years, Dr. Thompson provided family medicine to patients in Lincoln. In 2015, Dr. Richard Thompson’s health issues resulted in his early retirement. The Thompson Clinic was put in touch with Brad Meyer, CEO at Bluestem Health and a plan was put into place for Dr. Thompson’s patients and staff to become part of our organization.

    The Thompson Clinic’s current providers are Michael Israel, MD, and Marissa Ebel, APRN-NP, Family Nurse Practitioner. Both providers at our Thompson family medicine clinic enjoy providing family medicine in Lincoln, NE. Dr. Israel was recently named Young Physician of the Year by the Nebraska Medical Association.
