Doc has distinguished himself as one who invests in the future of rural America through livestock, land and lives. As a doctor he works just as hard to help the rural community by providing an array of essential services to rural patients. He has cared for the same community for over 50 years, performing more than 10,000 surgical procedures, delivering more than 4,000 babies and admitting over 50,000 patients to hospitals. He independently developed a new tonsillectomy procedure that is relatively painless. Doc was recognized as the 2010 Missouri’s Physician of the Year and also recognized by MU’s School of Medicine for developing a residents’ training program that teaches new physicians skills necessary for bringing comprehensive care to rural areas.
