Meet Dr. Zach Mahler

Dr. Zach Mahler

Dr. Zach Mahler, of Lincoln, Nebraska received his bachelor’s in Biology at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln before attending medical school at the University of Nebraska Medical Center, all the while also managing to squeeze in experience as a CNA at Madonna Rehabilitation Center.

Zach is happily married to Ally, who he says he could not live without, and together they share a daughter, Charley. Away from the clinic, you will find Dr. Mahler playing ultimate frisbee, slalom or barefoot water skiing or surfing, running, hiking, and even trap shooting, probably while listening to his favorite singer, Macklemore and eating Chinese food. If he were not a physician, Zach would likely be a farmer, but always wanted to be a racecar driver and hopes to someday fly an airplane. Until then, he can practice on his days off with video games. Dr. Mahler says his dad is his role model, and spending time with family makes him happy.

Zach loves the small town feel of Lincoln, Nebraska. He has really enjoyed how friendly and kind everyone at Lincoln Family Medicine Residency Program are to his family and himself. It also helps that both sets of his parents live in Lincoln, so his daughter will be able to enjoy her grandparents. When asked what he is looking forward to most this year, he shared, “Feeling more comfortable as a physician.”
