Physician Profile

Dr. Nesketa said he chose Owensboro in part because of what the community had to offer.

“My first priority was a good place to raise kids and have a family,” Dr. Nesketa said. “(Colleagues I spoke to) told me so many good things about Owensboro, and when I came here I saw it was a nice place.

Owensboro Health also was an appealing place to work, Dr. Nesketa said.

“Owensboro is in a very high position in terms of the services being delivered. It's not just the beauty of the structure (the hospital), but also the quality of care,” Dr. Nesketa said. “This is a place I can apply my skills and knowledge.”

It’s not just about working here, Dr. Nesketa said. It’s also important to reach out and do more.

“I want to be successful in my care area. Successful means I want to be helpful to my community and make a change to people's lives,” Dr. Nesketa said.
