I got to know Mr. Neuman and his family over a short period of time while being his medical assistant at Dr. Adlers office. He always came to his appointments Tuesday evenings with a smile on his face accompanied by his son. Our team at the office is deeply saddened by the sudden passing of Mr. Neuman. Our thoughts and prayers are with his loved ones at this time.
