Dr. Misch is loved by our son Daniel. When we come for a check up, they both find what to talk about: Scotland, New Orleans, or just about school, and it is like to come home: his office, all people there are outstanding. Yesterday he was looking like usually, and, I wish, he would be usual, but I asked questions... Now my heart breaks after his loss"
