John, who grew up in Merna, was an ag banker for 10+ years before applying to medical school. Coming from a small town, his desire was to practice family medicine in a more rural setting.
After finishing his residency, John was in private practice in Geneva, Nebraska for over 10 years caring for all ages including pediatric, adolescent, adult and geriatric patients. In addition, he provided obstetrical services including cesarean sections, upper and lower endoscopies, in-hospital and in-clinic minor surgical procedures, hospital in-patient care and emergency room services. John served as the hospital chief of staff, was medical director of a nursing home and was medical director of the hospital out-patient senior behavioral health program.
John moved to Omaha to become the Chief Medical Officer of a start-up primary care center, a role that was administrative in nature. After 3 1/2 years, the desire to provide direct patient care led him to decide to open Click Family Healthcare.

He is a Past President and has served as an AAFP Alternate Delegate, on the Board of Directors, the Scientific Affairs committee and the Executive committee.
