Why should this person be nominated
When I asked Dr. Marshall what was the reason he got into ended care rehab, this is what he said: "I think what helped me decide on geriatric rehab is my connection with my dad who is an older parent. He had me later in life. Friends, etc, would tease me and call him my grandpa. It used to upset me until I wised up and realized he was great and was there for me and attended and had time to go to my sporting events. So when I work with seniors I actually don't see the age and as a rehab doc I always try to get the best out of them.
Dr. Marshall is not the typical doctor, he is always greeting patients and family members at the facility. when a discharge day is approaching Dr. Marshall meets with the family an goes over every detail about their care, medications, family environment and home issues. We get so many calls and complements about him that if there is a week without a call about him our receptionist starts to ask if there is something wrong. He is loved by everyone, patients, family members, staff and we asked which doctor to nominate every single person said: Dr. Marshall without hesittation.
