Patients from four continents and all over the U.S. sought his care. He has served in various professional organizations, including committee memberships in the American Academy of Sleep Medicine and a directorship in the American Narcolepsy Association, and has given invited talks at various locations in the United States, Canada, Europe and South America. He was named one of America’s top Physicians in 2006 and again in 2009 and his practice was cited for quality and excellence. He initiated development and implementation of the first
comprehensive sleep medicine outcomes database in the country. He was a man of integrity and determination. He was well respected and loved by his staff, who describe him as dedicated and kind. His patients loved him not only for the special way he treated them as no one else could, but also for the way he treated them as equals and could bring a smile to anybody. He was a talented flamenco guitarist and will be missed by the many friends with whom he shared his love of this music. He was a loving and devoted husband, father, and brother and was thrilled to be a grandfather of three. His smiling eyes, dry sense of humor, and strong hugs will be dearly missed. Through his work and in the world, he touched many, many lives and will be greatly missed.
