I just saw him a week or two before his passing. He has been my doctor for way over 10 years even before he went transfer to redlands. I would drive the extra hour because he was one of those rare doctors that listen, gave good advice and was professional. Very rare. He cared for his patients. I remember our last talk He was telling me how he had his shoulder surgery (same doctor that was going to do mine at the time) and what he said made a big difference. He Motivated me to do it before it got worse. I trusted him and he made me feel at peace. He was an inspiration to me and always remembered me when he saw me walk in the clinic and would greet me by first name whike they did vitals. I was scheduled to have that surgery on my arm shoulder (rotator cuff) sept 9 and on sept 7 was my birthday. I tried to make an appointment with him recently for the problem i saw him in august. (Its Gotten worse) and now I am lost right now because he was a specialist and I don't know where to go that knew that much about my history and what worked in past and didn't. I been a kaiser member for 27 years. The doctor before him retired.
My heart goes deeply out to his family big time but I know he is in a good place and not forgotten.
Dr.king knew me when I was over 350lbs and lost way over 185lbs to help me with my problem. I Still was not able to conceive but always gave me hope. He was always motivating me. He was and will always be an inspiration to me and never will I guve up or forget him.
God watch over his family and I know they never met me but I will pray for all of them and I know he is going to be remembered because he made a difference to me and others and I feel blessed to have known him.
