Dr. Delbert Beiler has decided it is time to hang his stethoscope up and call it a day this week.

Coming to Orchard Hospital's Medical Specialty Center specializing in Family Medicine, Dr. Beiler will certainly be missed by the many patients he saw although he will come back to help during other physician's vacations.

Graduating from the University of Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico in 1973, Dr. Beiler has practiced medicine 43 years.

He plans to spend more time with family and just take life easy.

Dr. Herbert Gladen joined the medical staff at the  Medical Specialty Center and Orchard Hospital's surgery team in April last year having worked most recently at Colusa Regional Medical Center.

He attended medical school and completed his general surgery residency training at the Mayo Clinic Medical School in Rochester, Minnesota.

His wife is an RN and convinced him to go into the medical field. They have two grown children.

He has specialized in appendectomies, hernia repairs and gall bladder surgeries besides seeing patients at the Medical Specialty Center.
