Brian D. Lubberstedt, M.D.
After completing college at Nebraska Wesleyan University in 1999, I began my studies at the University of Nebraska Medical Center. While I was initially drawn to primary care, I soon realized that I preferred a slower pace than family practice. As my fascination with the workings of the mind grew from various exposures to psychiatry and psychology, I found that my greatest satisfaction came when I was investigating, educating, and treating my patients who presented with emotional or behavioral problems. A career in psychiatry was a natural fit.
I completed my medical schooling at UNMC in 2003, and in 2008 completed a five-year residency in psychiatry and fellowship in child and adolescent psychiatry at Creighton/UNMC. I was immediately drawn into residential treatment and relocated to Montana, where I had the honor of working among a team of professionals whose sole purpose was to restore well-being to children and teenagers with such a high severity of illness that they were no longer able to live at home.
I decided to return to my home city of Omaha in 2010, and had the opportunity to work at Alegent Creighton Health until 2014, doing a variety of work ranging from inpatient, partial hospitalization, and outpatient work. My love of outpatient psychiatry and the encounters afforded to me there led to a natural transition to private practice.
What I most enjoy about my profession is the part I get to play in restorating the health of my patients. While there are many medical conditions that you can see with your naked eye, what I help with is no less damaging, but I feel all the more rewarding. I have the honor of helping people achieve a higher quality of life than they had before, and in many cases get to assist children and adults in maturing and flourishing into the people that God created them to be.
Several of our physicians are trained promotional speakers for a variety of pharmaceutical companies. These doctors have been chosen because of their experience and expertise in their field and because of the respect amongst their peers. We believe this offers us the opportunity to meet with and discuss the current issues in our field with the primary thought leaders and researchers of psychiatry. Additionally it allows us to interact on a local, regional and national level with our psychiatric peers.
