I recently heard about the passing of Dr. Maggiano and was deeply saddened. I echo the sentiments that doctors like him are far and few in between. He would just seem to know exactly what to do about a particular condition. He was outgoing and always had the time to listen to all you had to say. He will be truly missed. I pray that GOD will give the peace that passes all understanding to his family.

Doc had taken care of us for many years, from Winkler Road to Whiskey Creek. After being up north for a couple years we returned only to find his office is ow a PT facility. Went on line only to find this site. We are truly devastated. He was more than a Dr and the best diagnostician, he was a friend. He sincerely cared about his patients.he was so happy to tell stories about the pictures and memorabilia in his office and his basketball days. He will be truly missed.There aren't Doctors like him around anymore. Deepest condolences to Lindy and family.

I have been numb all day reading this guest book. The testimonials prove what a great person he was. I ditto all the kind remarks. Lee County is at great loss. He saved the life of a dear friend of mine. I have been a faithful patient since 1998 when I moved to Florida. Lindy, I hope you get the message I left on the answer machine at the office. It was meant for the family, staff, and friends of a dear Saint. He is missed.

Although we only did learn of his passing in May, I have just discovered this site and wanted to write. Dr. was our primary care for only about 3 years and we liked him so very much. He was beyond caring and kind and of course listened to everything you wanted to say. I feel like I knew him well after many great conversations learning of his fascinating life and many talents beyond "doctoring". We were shocked and deeply sadened by his passing and want to send his family our sincere condolences on their great loss of this great man.

I found out yesterday, and words cannot express my sadness and grief. He was a 1 in a million Doctor and I know, I have had many. A dear friend and compassionate and attentive, in almost 20 yrs. as his Patient I never ever felt rushed he always listened and truly cared. I do not know how he can be replaced, I dread having to try different Doctors now. I also have an affection for Lindy his wife and want to express my deepest sympathies to her and their family. Lindy we will chat soon, my heart and prayers are with you. Cynthia Marcello (Ft. Myers, Fl.)

Dr Magg as we called him was the BEST Doctor in the world. I was just at his office two weeks ago and he was doing so much better. I've been trying to bring him and his Staff their "Easter" candy but to no avail. Called today, what a shock to say the least. We ALL loved you Dr Magg and will never forget you. I'm still going to bring that candy over, Norman Love, of course !!!
We LOVED you just as much as you LOVED your patients !!!!
RIP my friend from your Italian patient !!!!!

Our family is heartbroken after hearing about Dr. Magg today. He was my husband's doctor for 25 years and my doctor for 11 years. Never have we ever met a doctor with so much compassion for his patients. Dr. Magg always had a smile on his face and a joke to share...I can hear his laugh right now. You will be greatly missed Dr. Magg, what a wonderful, wonderful man!!! Our deepest condolences to Lindy, his children and his whole office. Heartbroken....

I will deeply miss Dr. Maggiano.
He took great care of me when I needed him the most. For over 20 years Dr. Maggiano took me on very short notice, always had time for me. He took interest in me other then just as a patient but also as a friend.

Lindy & Family, Dr. Maggiano (Rob) has been my doctor for close to 20 years, He is indeed a caring compassionete person as he would take the time to explain in it's entirety ones diagnosis, kinda reminds me of my growing up days when doctors made house calls and followed up. There is indeed a special place in heaven for him.

"I was profoundly saddened to hear of the passing of Dr. Maggiano. He was so much more than a doctor; an advisor, a confidante,someone to talk to about anything, but most of all a friend. He will be missed by all who knew him. My sincere condolences to his family at this very hard time for you all. God Bless You!

Dr. Maggiano was a very special person. Our paths crossed during a job assignment in Ft. Myers when we discovered we were from the same home town. We shared stories about The Hot Dog Shoppe and Sunrise pizza... and boy could he make you laugh about the simple things in life. I am grateful I knew him. He was a very special care giver and will be deeply missed. He leaves us with many fond memories. My deepest sympathy to his family.

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow. He is an angel watching us now. His death was unexpected. I am heart broken. I always imagined he would always be my doctor. I just got married; I thought he would take care of my husband and one day my children. Just like me. He has been taking care of me since I was a little girl. I have so many great memories with him. I loved him and his wife dearly. He will always be remembered and I will share my stories and memories with my children one day. In loving memory of a wonderful person. We will love you and miss you always. We love you Mag!
