Dr. Jean Koffel with
Dan Lyons, D.C.,
Jean Koffel, D.C., graduated from Palmer in
and opened her Sheboygan,
Wis., practice on May 1, 1945.
After nearly 72 years of practice, Dr. Koffel is still
taking care of patients—some of them now 4th
and 5th generation—in Sheboygan. She works
six days a week: Monday, Wednesday and Friday
from 8 a.m. to noon and 1:30 to 5 p.m., and
Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday from 8 a.m. to
noon. It’s a schedule that could wear out chiropractors
half her age.
Dr. Koffel has many fond memories of her years as
a student at Palmer, notably carving C1 and C2 out
of soap, walking downtown with fellow students
to take a paddle boat to Rock Island on Sundays
because Davenport was a dry town, and dancing
on the roof of the Administration Building next to
the Little Bit ’O Heaven garden.
