About Nagendra Natarajan MD, MPH

Upon completing my medical schooling in India, I enrolled in the Masters in Public Health Program – majoring in public health education at Western Kentucky University. This program taught me the importance of patient education and the need for research to manage complex diseases effectively, especially cancer. I continued to build on this knowledge during my internal medicine/pediatrics residency training at Creighton University, and my hematology and medical oncology fellowship training at the University of Louisville, Kentucky.


In my practice, my goal is to educate every patient regarding their diagnosis, discuss standard and clinical trial treatment options and provide the personalized care they deserve. Here at NCS I have the privilege to practice medicine and provide care as it is meant to be.

  • 02/24/23
    These angels always go the extra mile for all of us. Many times I hear one of them unaware I am being observant, caring for a patient so lovingly and patiently it nearly brings a tear. VALERIE goes above and beyond for Joe and me, always understanding my concerns and listening. The lab girl is amazing, never feel a thing. Heather, Dr Ns case manager is a saint, as we're the two before her. Would never consider going anyplace else for care.

    Dr. Natarajan is hands down the absolute best medical professional there is! My family and I can not say enough good things about him- from his genuine caring nature, to his extra thoroughness, and not to mention the amount of time he spends with his patient (never rushed!); he is the BEST!
  • 01/25/23
    Thank you for being so courteous.

  • 06/21/22
    My Dr. had ordered CT of the chest, abdomen, and pelvis. For unknown reason, the chest scan was omitted, so I have to come back to have that done. My CT report stated that my gall bladder was surgically absent. I have never had my gall bladder removed. These are serious problems. Dr. Natarajan and his staff are wonderful, as are most of the staff who took care of me during my imaging procedures. I think these lapses should be investigated. They are serious and should not happen again to me or anyone else.
  • 10/25/22
    Everyone there has been so great with my mom Rita Rome! We are very thankful! Steve Rome
  • 08/26/22
    I am unable to say how excellent the drs and nurses including all staff treat patients and their families. All visits are not only accomplished with precision and accuracy but with caring and understanding emotional needs. I am in awe every time we come. How fortunate to have this in Omaha.
  • 10/19/22
    Very kind.helpful
  • 11/02/22
    Have the utmost faith in Dr Natarajan, all his PA's and nursing staff.
  • 11/08/22
    I am so grateful for the care I have received at NCS. From the very beginning of my diagnosis, my care plan has been excellent. Appointments were made quickly, cooperation of care between the hospital and cancer center was seamless. We have friends who have had treatment in other facilities and their care was complicated and confusing, which delayed treatment. NCS provides outstanding, professional, and personalized treatment. I thank all the personnel from the reception desk, to the lab, to the infusion center, to my doctor for their dedication to each patient.
  • 10/04/22
    The staff and facilities are great. The care is excellent. I would recommend any cancer patient to go there.
  • 10/11/22
    I have had horrific experiences with numerous doctors in other practices, so I am about as jaded as any patient can get... the invalidation, the egos, feeling like you are nothing more than a number, not even a human being...it's been terrible. But THIS is how medicine is supposed to be practiced. Dr. Natarajan is what a doctor is SUPPSOSED to be like. I don't want him to take any time away from us patients, but Dr. Natarajan could teach a course in how a physician should run a practice. It's good for the patient, good for the doctor, and I have doubt, good for the bottom line of the practice, financially speaking too. I feel supported here.
  • 08/17/22
    I like Nagendra . He is a very good dr.
  • 08/29/22
    Erin was the nurse who explained my results to me. So extremely nice, explained it well enough for a novice to understand. thanks
  • 07/25/22
    As always - outstanding in every way! Thank you all...
  • 10/19/22
    I have been very pleased with Dr. Natarajan and am sorry he won’t be in Fremont anymore. I don’t know Dr. Wells, but have been told she is also very good.
  • 10/12/22
    From reception area to medical examination room was top notch! Caring and helpful staff. Pam - nurse advocate was instrumental in keeping both my husband and myself calm by taking notes for us. Dr. Natajaran was friendly and explained my situation very clearly. My future tests were set up before leaving. We are very thankful to God for having such wonderful medical experiences and care provided.
  • 08/02/22

  • 06/23/22
    Currently, I'm dealing with a family member who has Parkinson''s and I have been her primary care provider for five years. Since January, other medical issues have impacted her. In the last two weeks, she has been taken to the ER, spent 10 days in the hospital and placed last Monday at a long term care facility. That alone has been stressful. To add to this adjustment, she did not receive her Parkinson's medications on a timely/routine basis. Yesterday, we thought all of that had been corrected until today. I have to say the NCS nurses listened and acted to help me get assistance with this stressful transition. I am so grateful for their help and guidance.
  • 06/14/22
    Facility is great. Love the Drs and staff especially the nurse navigator. It’s nice to have someone take notes and help you with anything and everything.

  • 08/29/22
    My appointment was just for a blood draw. Fast and easy.
  • 09/23/22
    I have been patient for approximately 12 years, and really cannot think of a single complaint. I had a reaction to the medicine one time and the nurses were more than competent and compassionate. As mine is a chronic issue, I can’t see me going anywhere else. Thanks for the great job you all do!!!!

    Dr. Natarajan and the entire staff are the best. I could not ask for better care.
