Thomas MagnusonThomas Magnuson
Geriatric Psychiatrist Department
This KUDOS award recognizes the work of Thomas Magnuson, Assistant Professor in the Geriatric Psychiatrist Department at University of Nebraska Medical Center.
Families of his patients are quick to commend Thomas for the care and attention that he provides their aging parents. In fact, he goes above and beyond expectations daily. He is one of only a handful of physicians who still makes house-calls on a regular basis, saying that it gives him a better understanding of his patients. In addition, he is also one of few doctors today that does his own call-backs when patients call with questions instead of having a nurse or secretary handle it for him.
When faced the threat or Alzheimer’s or depression and changes in their mood, memory and independence; Thomas is there to provide outstanding care, consistent attention and time for their questions and fears.
