    I have such fond memories of working with Harvey he always had a smile on his face! Judy and visited him in the hospital many years ago after a surgery and knew what to bring instead of flowers…..we brought scratch offs! He loved it. You will be missed Harvey!!

    There are patients in your life that you will never forget; Harvey was one of them. He always had a smile for me, even when he did not feel like it. We went through alot of heart issues together and he blessed my life beyond measure. I will miss him.
    Sincerely,
    John Bright Cage, M.D.
