2-C Sunday, July 9, 1972 Dr. Anson H. Stage Oregon Physician Joins Med School Faculty After 15 years in private practice Dr. Anson Stage hat decided to go back to medical school because that's where the action is. He's the new assistant profes-sor in the D e p a r t m e n t of Obstetrics-Gynecology at t h e Louisiana State U n i v e r s i t y School of Medicine at Shreve-port. He comes here from Coos Bay, Ore., which has a patient; shed of some 50,000 patients. A graduate of George Wash-ington U n i v e r s i t y Medical School, Stage took an internship at the U.S. Naval Hospital, Bethesda, Md., and his residen-cy at Emanuel Hospital, Port-land, Ore., before moving to Coos Bay, which he described as an "isolated settlement on the coast." "There are exciting things going on . . .," Stage said in an interview in his fourth floor office at Confederate Memorial Medical Center . . . "So much is happening after 15 years and medical schools are where it is happening." Amon the developments to which he refers are examina-tion of amniotic fluid of pregn-ant women and treatment of RH incompatibility by this ex-| amination. His own area of research interest iies in gynecological malignacies. He originally went to Coos Bay, "because I enjoy small town atmosphere and they need-ed an OB man — they still do." Maybe medical schools are where the action is, but even in Coos Bay Stage wasn't the run of the mill private practitioner. Questioned closely, he modest-ly told of a clinic set up by himself and three other OB-GYN specialists, so pregnant patients on welfare wouldn't have to go to Portland, 200 miles away, and so they would have the care of a specialists, 'and not hit and miss (care)." "Each one of us would have the clinic one month and be off three months," he explained. Welfare funds paid for hospi-tal care. Stage is a Fellow of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology and a Diplo-mate of the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
