Stan was a marvel: intelligent, high-energy, compassionate, courageous, and truly an Adaptive and Innovative Business Leader. As an ABL Member for the past seven years - in both our LA and San Francisco Round Tables, he was a true leader in demonstrating how an affordable "integrated healthcare"
model (providing primary care, behavioral care, and addiction treatment) was the right approach to offer patients, even when others "in power" didn't get it. Right to the end, he was developing new ways of caring for patients that will - as his legacy - improve the lives of thousands. It's truly been an honor to know Stan, and several of his co-workers. He will be forever in our hearts, Mimi Grant/President/ABL Organization

Lovable with a great smile, Stan will always be remembered as a kind and generous person. When our Mom retired at the age of 75 she still wanted to work and Stan empolyed her at one of his clinics and in his his travels he always remembered her with lovely postcards. Rest in peace Stan.
