|NEIL CHARLES GEIS, M. D.|
Dr. Neil Charles Geis, a practicing physician and
surgeon of Casper who holds to the highest professional standards,
was born in Creston, Iowa, on the 26th of April. 1888, a son of
Nicholas and Maria (Eck) Geis, who are natives of Portsmouth, Ohio,
where they were reared and married. They afterward removed to
Creston, Iowa, where they still reside, having made their home in
that city for thirty-five years. They have long been prominently
known there and the father, who for many years was engaged in the
stock business, is now living retired.
Dr. Geis obtained a public school education in Towa and afterward attended St. Benedict's College at Atchison, Kansas, from which he received the Bachelor of Arts degree upon his graduation. He afterward entered the Chicago College of Physicians and Surgeons and won the M. D. degree as a graduate of the class of 1913. The same year he removed to the west, his destination being Fresno, California, but on reaching Cheyenne, Wyoming, he stopped to visit a brother who was located on a Wyoming ranch. While in Cheyenne he was told of the wonderful development of the city of Casper, visited the city to size up the situation, and being pleased with its conditions and its prospects, determined to make Casper the scene of his future professional activity. He then opened an office and as the years have passed he has been accorded liberal professional support.
On the 4th of September, 1913, Dr. N. C. Geis was united in marriage to Dr. Elizabeth Cubbage, of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, who was a graduate of the same medical class in which her husband received his professional degree. She practices independently of her husband, having offices, however, in the same building with him. Both are members of the Natrona County Medical Society, of the Wyoming State Medical Society and the American Medical Association. Their religious faith is that of the Catholic church and Dr. N. C. Neis belongs to the Knights of Columbus. He is also a member of the Loyal Order of Moose and the Fraternal Order of Eagles and is medical examiner for both lodges. He is a member of the Medical Officers Reserve Corps, having been appointed with the commission of captain.
He ranks as one of the foremost citizens and successful professional men of Casper, where he has made for himself a most creditable position. He has been a close student of his profession and is interested in anything that tends to bring to man the key to the complex mystery which we call life. He is careful in the diagnosis of his cases and utilizes the most advanced scientific methods, enjoying the confidence and goodwill not only of the general public but of his professional colleagues and contemporaries.
