Days Gone ByFrom the Feb. 11, 1999, River Falls Journal:
By: Pat Hunter, Archivist, River Falls Journal
Born in a small North Dakota town, Glenn Hoberg joined a medical practice in downtown River Falls in 1959 with another family practicing osteopath, Dr. John Anderson, and Dr. Roger Senty, an osteopathic surgeon. The trio moved to the current location, at the Main Street-Cascade Avenue intersection, in 1961.
The 70-year-old Hoberg and his wife Georgia have four children and live in the town of Troy.
Hoberg also farms and raises beef cattle. He has 26 pregnant cows that he says will give birth this April.
Hoberg, also an Army flight surgeon, was called up as a reservist and served six months during the 1991 Gulf War.
“I just like being a doctor in River Falls,” Hoberg said. “I see real nice people, enjoy what I do and I’m happy when I can make them feel better. I plan to keep going, as long as people come to see me.”
