Crete NE primary care medical director Josue Gutierrez

Josué Gutiérrez, MD

Medical Director

I graduated from the University of the Ozarks in 2009 and later graduated from the University of Arkansas for Medical Science in 2013. My family and I moved to Nebraska to complete my Family Medicine residency. Though we had never been to Nebraska, after our first visit for my residency interview we really liked the area and decided this is where we wanted to live. During my time in residency, my wife and I loved living in Nebraska and decided to stay. After completing my residency in 2016, I started working at Saline Medical Specialties in Crete. Our baby was born just last year (Jan 2018) and every day is a new adventure with her. I love serving Crete and the people of its community, and will continue to work hard to provide the great care my patients are accustomed to.

Nurse Practitioner

I am a Certified Family Nurse Practitioner who graduated in 2012 from the University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Nursing.
Prior to my FNP Certification, I completed my Master’s in Nursing from Clarkson College in 1996 and Bachelor of Science in Nursing from UNMC in 1986.  In addition to ten years of Family Practice experience, I enjoyed working in the field of TBI rehabilitation, mental health and substance abuse, hospice, occupational health and geriatric care.  My husband and I have been married over 40 years with three grown children and four grandchildren.  My daughter is pregnant with her second child and we are looking forward to that blessed event in April 2024.  In addition to spending time with my family, I enjoy card playing, cooking, and NFL sports.  I enjoy college football too and a round of golf on a sunny day.  I look forward to seeing you and your family in the clinic as we focus on your needs and opportunities to collaborate together.  When we combine our efforts, we can accomplish goals that optimize ourselves, our family and community.

I am a certified family nurse practitioner, having graduated from the University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Nursing in 2023. Prior to becoming a nurse practitioner, I was an RN for just over 9 years with experience in the hospital setting. I was born and raised in Nebraska. I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling, camping, and reading. I value teamwork, and I am excited to join this practice to provide high quality care. I am enthusiastic about sharing my knowledge with my patients to improve their health. I look forward to building a relationship with my patients and the community.
