Not sure what to say?

I had a dream about Dr. Lon last night. He was my pediatrician beginning at age 2, and the only physician my mother ever completely trusted to take care of me. He was also a huge influence in my life. Having no doctors in my family, my only exposure to medicine at an early age was through my interactions with Dr. Lon. I knew from a young age I wanted to be a doctor just like Dr. Lon. Today, as a second year medical student, I can only hope to show the same compassion and care to my future...

I could not believe my ears when I heard that Dr. Lon unexpectedly passed away. My daughter has been under his care for so many years and came to know this seemingly stern but outstanding doctor. I have no words but only praise for his medical skills and devotion to his profession. Our loss could not be replaced for a long time to come and every time our daughter needs medical care, we will keenly feel the loss and the vacancy. May his soul rest in peace!

I was shocked to hear about Dr. Lon's passing. I spent the past 21 years of my life having him as my Pediatrician and don't think any other Doctor will ever live up to his legacy. I am truly still saddened. No matter how sick I ever felt, as soon as I walked into his office I felt calm, and incredibly taken care of. Dr. Lon was truly one of a kind. He was not just a pediatrician to us, but a friend. Not only did my entire family go to Dr. Lon for years, but my Aunt and Uncle and Cousins did...

I was shocked and heartbroken to find out about Dr. Lon's passing. He was a gem of a person and an outstanding pediatrician. We were so fortunate to have our kids in his care. May he Rest In Peace . He will be in our hearts and memories forever.

We recently moved & just found out about dr. lon passing because we have been unable to get access of our medical records. He was such an amazing Doctor. I dont think any other pediatrician will live up to him. I have tried to call his old office & Overlook hospital to get their medical records but have not had any luck. If anyone knows how I could get them could you please let me know, my email is [email protected] I have 3 babies behind on shots. Thank you. And rest in peace...

We just learned of the sudden passing of Dr. Lon!! I'm speechless! Dr. Lon blessed so many! He has cared for my 3 boys since they were born. My deepest condolences to his family and friends. His shoes will be hard to fill and my children will miss their yearly chuckles with him as will I. May he Rest In Peace and watch over us all with his kind and gentle heart.

He was a wonderful doctor. My children and I will miss him. God Bless

We just got to know and my family and I are heartbroken to hear that Dr. Lon is not with us anymore. I am so sad and feel like crying. I just saw him a couple of months ago for my kids check ups. He was my kids pediatrician from their birth onwards and my son is now 14, while my daughter will be 16 in October. I remember when my first child was born and he came to my hospital room and he took her in his hands and that moment I knew that my child is in good hands. He was an amazing and...

I am heartbroken to learn about the passing of Dr. Lon. He was an amazing man and he will be deeply missed. My prayers and condolences goes out to his family and all of the children and families that he cared for. This is tough.
