During the four years he has been identified with the medical profession of Utica, Dr. John Wayland Rayhill
has succeeded in building up a very fair practice. He is a native of this city, his natal day having been the 5th
of August, 1877, and his parents were James W. and Martha Adelaide (Pattengill) Rayhill, the father a well known
resident and member of the bar of Utica.
Dr. John Wayland Rayhill acquired his education in the public schools of this city, being graduated from the Utica
Free Academy in 1898, following which he pursued a two years post graduate course in the same institution. At the
expiration of that period he went to New York city, matriculating in the University and Bellevue Medical College.
Later he spent two years in the Long Island Medical College Hospital, Brooklyn, New York, being awarded his professional
degree in 1906. Returning to Utica he received an appointment as an interne in the Faxon Hospital, where he remained
for fifteen months. On the 1st of December, 1907, he established an office and has ever since engaged in general
practice, but still continues to be identified with the hospital in the capacity of anasthetist. He is also physician
in the Home for Aged Men and Couples.
Fraternally Dr. Rayhill holds membership in Imperial Council, No. 70, Royal Arcanum, while he maintains relations
with the members of his profession through the medium of the Oneida County Medical Society, New York State Medical
Association and American Medical Association, and, he is also a member of the Utica Medical Library, of which organization
he is at present treasurer. Dr. Rayhill is naturally well endowed for the profession he has elected to follow and
his future would seem to be most promising.
