Canadian Medical Assocation

Toronto; Cambridge University (England), 1949; general practice. Died Nov. 4, 2017, aged 93. Survived by his wife Joan, 2 sons and 2 grandchildren. “After earning his medical degree, Bob joined the Royal Canadian Air Force in the early 1950s and moved to Canada. Together, he and Joan built a bustling private practice out of their home in suburban Don Mills, where he became one of the true pioneers of family medicine in Ontario. With a droll wit as sharp as any scalpel, he was adored by patients for his multidisciplinary and preventive brand of personalized medicine. Skeptical by nature, he was nevertheless an early adopter of healing modalities like acupuncture, provided they worked for his patients.”
