He was the most caring and down to earth Doctor anyone would be lucky to have.  Many of my friends who were also his patients always asked when I saw them if I heard how he was doing.  Heaven has received the most gentle and caring health provider.

Dr. Ferner was my doctor when he took over Dr. Yorks office in union deposit, until he retired. He is still one of my favorite doctor/persons..along with his wife. I will honestly miss those two folks. Who I hope would let me call them friend. Man this hot home for me. Adios my friend.
