He has been my doctor for the better part of 35 years and I am saddened to hear he is no longer with Tower Health. No additional information provided to me for an upcoming appointment. All I can say is ..................sad is an understatement. He is such a great doctor and so caring. I am one of many that will say, he will be missed terribly.
