The best doctor I ever knew

By
From page A4 | July 01, 2014 |

Almost 12 years ago my first child, a son, was born.

Since my wife is a Sutter employee, we decided on Dr. Michael Reinhart as a pediatrician. He immediately impressed me as a kind, warm, soft-spoken gentleman who truly loved children. Seeing him work, I observed an engagement, a satisfaction, and a natural talent that embodied what all of us strive for in our work, but very few ever achieve. He was doing what he was meant to do.

Almost exactly two years after my son was born, I had a daughter. Dr. Reinhart had a magical relationship with her as well. Through the 12 years he was our pediatrician, all of us experienced what medical care should ideally be. My kids looked forward to checkups, received excellent care and always enjoyed talking to their doctor.

A few weeks ago, Dr. Reinhart retired. Those who were fortunate enough to be his patients will remember him fondly. Sadly, he can never be replaced. Enjoy your retirement, Dr. Reinhart.
