He then spent 2 ½ years as Medical Director of the Salina Regional Health Center Rehabilitation Unit before retiring at the end of 2016. During his many years in practice, his patient population was largely over age 65 and he diagnosed and treated numerous patients with Alzheimer’s Disease and other dementias.
