BIO

John R. Jacobsen, M.D., a Board Certified Family Practice physician, is the founder and owner of Click Family Healthcare clinics in Kearney and Broken Bow, Nebraska.

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.

John has been active in family medicine organizations at both the state and national levels.

John credits his wife Janet for their success. They have 2 daughters and 3 grandchildren, the youngest being a few weeks old.

He opened Click Family Healthcare in Kearney, NE in 2017 and a second location in Broken Bow, NE in 2020.

BIO

 

I am a Filipinx creator and connector. I discovered my love of being a cradle to grave family physician while at Creighton Med School on a rotation in Superior, NE. I trained for residency in Modesto preparing to be a rural family doc and moved to rural Northern CA after residency. I worked in the broken corporate model of medicine because I did not know any other option than to be employed. 

 

Then, I learned about DPC and the bands holding my wings were clipped. Now, I fly free as a Direct Primary Care physician being able to practice medicine how I have always wanted to. With this freedom, I am charged up to share with other physicians the power of the Direct Primary Care model. I will tell any and all about DPC because the model is truly at the core of how we will take back healthcare.

Hosted by Dr. Maryal Concepcion, who is herself a DPC physician, you’ll hear why DPC docs are happy with the practices they’ve built.
