Gretna Clinic Set to Open in July, Physician Team Announced

Published: June 2, 2015

As construction continues at a steady pace, Methodist Physicians Clinic’s Gretna location will open as scheduled, with patients being seen starting in July.

As the clinic opening draws near, Methodist Physicians Clinic president and CEO, Todd Grages, has announced the medical team for the Gretna location. A family medicine physician will also be joining the group, with that announcement expected July 1.

The Gretna medical team is as follows:


“We are very excited about the team of physicians we have in place for the Gretna Clinic,’ said Grages. “We worked diligently to assure the community the quality of care they have come to expect from Methodist would be in place. These three physicians are excellent in each of their respective fields and looking forward to being a part of the Gretna community.”

Dr. Lacey has been a physician with Methodist Physicians Clinic since 2008, seeing patients at the Millard Clinic location. Her unique specialty of pediatrics and internal medicine allows her to care for patients of all ages. She was also instrumental in establishing a weight and nutrition management program at the Millard location.

“While I was pursuing pediatrics I felt like something was missing,” Dr. Lacey said. “I learned more about internal medicine/pediatrics and it just seemed right. I feel my specialty really is the best of both worlds.  I pursued a career in medicine because I wanted to help people live a healthy and happy life. I feel fortunate to be able to do that every day.”

Dr. Cohn brought her OB/GYN talents to Methodist Physicians Clinic Women’s Center in 2014, joining the largest OB/GYN practice in the Metro. While seeing patients at 192 & Dodge, Dr. Cohn also was a regular at the Indian Hills clinic. A trip to West Africa during college solidified her decision to enter the medical field.

“My grandmother was a nurse and I was so interested in what she did,” Dr. Cohn said. “I liked that every day she was able to help people. While attending college I traveled with a medical group to Ghana and that further convinced me that medicine was what I wanted to do.”

Her philosophy with her patients is making sure they are involved in their health care journey.

“I feel, as a physician, my role with my patients is to make sure they have an active role in their health care choices,” Dr. Cohn said.

Dr. Probasco, was inspired to enter the medical field at the age of 7, when her mother was pursuing her nursing degree. She joined Methodist Physicians Clinic in February of this year.

“Part of my mom’s homework was to watch a video on child birth,” Dr. Probasco said. “She kicked all of us out of the house, but I managed to hide and watch the video. I thought child birth was such a beautiful thing and I knew then that’s what I wanted to do. Bringing new life into the world every day is an amazing thing.”

As a mother of five, Dr. Probasco feels like she can relay her own labor and pregnancy experiences with her patients.

“It’s really important to treat the patient mind, body and soul,” Dr. Probasco said. “I want to really hear what they are telling me and come up with a plan, together, as to how best to treat them. I certainly feel my experience as a mom is something valuable to share with them.”

The community will be able to tour the new clinic and meet the physician team at an open house and ribbon cutting on July 1.
