Deepest sympathy

Dr Tagher was a great pediatrician to my daughters and then my granddaughter. Dr Paul was a great comfort to me when my youngest daughter was diagnosed with heart disease back in 1993. She liked Dr Paul so much she continued seeing him until she turned 21. My grandchildren still go to the practice. Rest In Peace Dr. Tagher
