“My love of science, strong interest in the brain and my desire to heal led me to specialize in neurology,” said Degenhardt in a news release. “I am dedicated to the highest standards of care, and to individualized patient care. I chose Pen Bay because of the exceptionally talented neurology group and the hospital’s dedication to patient care.”
