Small-town Doctor, Big-time Hero

Rushville, Illinois is a small town where sunflowers wave in the wind. One of its claims to fame is Dr. Russell Dohner. A man who has been looking after his neighbors for 55 years, charging them about what we pay for a fancy cup of coffee: five bucks a visit. “In a mercenary world,” a waiting patient told me, “this place is an oasis.” Dohner will go anywhere, at any time, to help those in need, often arriving before emergency crews. He once saved a small boy from smothering to death in a corncrib, once climbed down into a coal mine to help rescue four men. The only times he’s ever closed his clinic was when he broke his back, and when he had a heart attack. More about this beloved doctor, who at 85 still continues to heal his community. { read more }
