OMAHA – Joining the Methodist team is a homecoming of sorts for Dr. Kimberly Butts.
An Omaha native, Dr. Butts is the newest member of the family medicine staff at Methodist Physicians Clinic Northwest.
“I know firsthand that Methodist has quality care,” she said. “I’m very familiar with the clinic that I’m going to be working at because that was the clinic I went to as a kid. My children go to Methodist clinics as well, so I just want to be a part of that family.”
Dr. Butts earned her bachelor’s degree in biology from the University of Nebraska at Omaha and completed her medical training at the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha. She completed her residency at the Lincoln Family Medicine Program in Lincoln.
She credits her grandfather, who was a family physician in Indiana, with sparking her interest in medicine.
“I just remember going to the clinics when we went to go visit, and I enjoyed how he helped people,” she said. “He instilled in me that physicians are more than just healers. We’re educators, confidants and also cheerleaders for our patients.”
Dr. Butts said she’s looking forward to partnering with her patients to improve and maintain their health.
“Medicine isn’t about me telling them what they need to do,” she said. “We have to sit down, set expectations and figure out what their goals are, and then being able to help them achieve their goals on their own terms.”
Dr. Butts is now scheduling patients at Methodist Physicians Clinic Northwest Omaha (10710 Fort St.). Appointments can be made by calling 402-354-7500.
