Thanks to tips from the public, physicians Thursday were able to identify a Scripps Mercy Hospital patient who was unable to tell him his name.
The retirement-age man was brought to the Hillcrest medical center Sept. 20 from the North Park area, according to San Diego police.
On Wednesday evening, authorities circulated a photo of the patient in hopes that someone would recognize him.
Police did not release the man’s name.
