"He sees all types of patients with all kinds of diagnoses - treating each and every one with courtesy and respect. He individualizes his treatment plans to each patient’s needs and personal goals. He routinely goes 'the extra mile' to make sure each of his patients is well taken care of and has a thorough care plan."

Serving both inpatient and outpatient care with Western Plains Therapy Services the past two years, Stapleton graduated from Dodge City High School then went on to Dodge City Community College before transferring to Wichita State.
