Biography of Dr. George N. Macomber
Esses County, NY Biographies





Macomber, George N., M. D., of Syracuse, was born in Essex county, N. Y., May 13, 1854. His father being a farmer, he was reared to agricultural pursuits. His early education was obtained at the Keeseville academy. His scientific knowledge, for which he always had a great desire, was acquired by his own exertions. Most of his time for two years was spent in teaching to obtain means to pursue his studies, having from childhood an inherent passion for medicine. He entered the office of Dr. H. A. Houghton. a very able physician of Keeseville, now of Boston. Mass. After three years of study he entered Pulte Medical college of Cincinnati, Ohio. from which he graduated in 1878. Immediately after graduating he located in Norwood, St. Lawrence county, where he remained in active practice for four years. Not being satisfied to remain longer in so small a town, in the spring of 1882 he sold out to a young physician who was desirous of purchasing an established practice, and at once removed to Syracuse, N. Y. He entered the office formerly occupied by the late Dr. Bigelow, 110 South Salina street, and by his close application to business and courteous and gentlemanly treatment, he has not only built up a large and lucrative practice, but enjoys the confidence of the entire community and the respect of the medical profession, who recognize in him a young man of very marked ability. In the treatment of chronic diseases he has been especially successful, often being called in consultation in difficult cases, in preference to older practitioners.
