I was sorry to hear about Dr. Kammerer’s passing. I had worked closely with him at the Hershey Medical Center. One of his major clinic’s program was the Travel Clinic that he started Internal Medicine Clinic. He was always so enjoyable to work with especially when creating his schedule templates. RIP.
