Dr. Feigin Passes Away

We note with great sadness the passing away of legendary pediatrician Dr. Ralph Feigin.

I work in the Med Center and ran into Dr. Feigin in the elevator and sky bridges here several times.  What struck me most about this remarkable man was his politeness and the seemingly perpetual smile he always sported.

In a place where some prominent physicians see it as their earned right to ignore those who are not their colleagues, the most accomplished of them all (there’s a building named after him), Dr. Feigin was, in my experience, always friendly. He was never above saying a friendly hello, even to a worker bee like myself.

You can read about his achievements in the following Houston Chronicle article:
