To the family of Dr. Geronemus,
Please accept my deepest condolences. I was a patient of Dr. Geronemus for three years. He was a caring and talented physician as well as a wonderful person. He kept me healthy as I was dealing with ESRD. Because of his care I recieved a kidney transplant. I am deeply sadened that I was not able to thank him in person. His untimely passing is a tragic loss. You all are in my thoughts and prayers.

I remember working with Rob many years ago at Mt. Sinai and what a pleasure it was.
A great loss.

My deepest condolences to your family. I knew Dr. Geronemus as an RN for many years at Coral Springs Medical Center. He was always so professional and intelligent. His death is such a terrible loss to his family, his community, and his patients.

My deepest sympathies. I had just met Dr. Geronemus on Saturday at the conference. I say his name tag and said to him "I am so excited to meet you. I have heard so much about you." He smiled and started talking about science and improving patient care. He embodied what a doc should be.

Laurie and girls: I was deeply saddened to learn of Bob's tragic accident; he and I worked closely together years ago on RPA business, and more recently he was a great help to me in arranging a nephrologist appt for one of my patients who was moving to FL. We alll miss him deeply, but no where close to what you feel. Please know that we all felt that Bob was "one of the good guys!"

My condolences to His Wife and Family. I never knew Dr. Geronemus; but as a Florida Nephrologist I knew of him. He was well respected and known to be a dedicated Physician. To the renal community,nurses and physicians,he was a voice for patient and physician rights. A dedicated patient advocate. I many times refered patients to him when they were moving across the State. Based on his reputation I felt and had full confidence they would be well cared for. I'm sorry I never had the opportunity to meet him. My Deepest Sympathy to his family.

I am, like all who knew him, hurt and saddened by the death of our awesome "Dr. G". I learned so much this "born teacher"....He LOVED to teach and did it in such a great way, never making anyone feel stupid. My heart goes out to his family and all who worked with him over the years! He was well loved and will be horribly missed.

I was so deeply saddened when I learned of Rob's untimely death that I could not contribute to these pages until now.

I first met Rob in December 1990 when I interviewed to join his practice. I saw a man of calm demeanor, great affability and most importantly, superior intellect. Having also earned a degree in physics, he was the first nephrologist who used the technique of continuous arteriovenous hemofiltration and dialysis (CAVHD). He proudly showed me his paper which, although not well received when it was initially presented, was adopted by many, including some who claimed to have invented the new procedure. It was not until many years later in a review article in the New England Journal of Medicine that Rob's seminal paper was given proper credit.

Having left academia, I found a mentor in the new world of private practice. He taught me all about the business of nephrology. When we became partners, decisions were always made after discussion and through consensus. He always believed in fairness and he once told me that it was better to work together than alone. Nevertheless, it was he who initiated some key management decisions that contributed to the success of our practice.

His leadership qualities were also evident outside of our practice. For many years, he was president of the Florida Society of Nephrology and president of the End Stage Renal Disease Network 7. He helped design a Medicare Demonstration Project that we did with Blue Cross Blue Shield many years ago. He was on a national advisory committee with Fresenius Medical Care and he was well known among the leaders of the Renal Physician Association and the American Society of Nephrology.

Most importantly, he was well loved by his patients, his colleagues, our office staff and all of the nurses in the dialysis units and the hospitals.

Through the years, we had become good friends who chatted not only about science and medicine but also about family and politics. I will dearly miss our conversations.

Sailing may have been one of his passions, but it was too soon for him to sail into the sunset.

There are some people who influence a whole group of people with hope and creativity and kindness. I feel that Doctor Geronemus developed a team of medical caregivers which bridges compassion with technology for the renal family. My deepest sympathy to his family. Deborah Culp
