    Dr J as we all knew was the best Dr I ever went to in my entire life. I remember when I lost my dad he took care of me as I wasn’t doing well and ended up in hospital. I moved south of the city and faithfully went to see him I was so sad when he left the practice but he told me it would be ok and to today I still go to that office even though it has changed many drs in the years I have never changed to a Dr closer to me Dr J I know ur in heaven helping my family who passed away as well as anyone that needs a great Dr to see. U were a very caring and kind Dr and had excellent manners in caring of ur patients Deepest Sympathy to the family. Deb
