No more “Doctor” Harrys (at least, not in my family)

My great-grandfather, Philip Nathan “Archippus” Harry, MD, may his soul rest in peace, must be dismayed that the family tradition which he started is no more: two of his sons were medical specialists (an Ophthalmologist and an Otorhinolaryngologist) in England, one grandson (my father) was a surgeon in Jamaica and my brother and I worked in Toronto, he as a family psychotherapist and I as a urologist: none of our ten (in total) children has elected to study medicine. My brother retired in 2020 and I, now 17 years past my “best before date”, will be retiring on the first of July.

I have had an interesting, enjoyable and fulfilling career, which I would have liked to continue through age 95, but prudence dictates otherwise: so goodbye, and thanks to all of you for your faithfulness and your many kind words, over the past 57 years.

I hope that your new functional medicine practitioners perform to your satisfaction and I hope that this website, including my “blog” will keep you updated and assist your efforts to take an active part in your healthcare.

I will continue this blog as long as I am able: I hope that you will enjoy it as much as I do.

Sincerely, Gervais A. Harry.

I am a Toronto-trained Urologist. I practiced in downtown Toronto, from 1977 to 1997, when I went to Saudi Arabia as chief of Urology at the Armed Forces (teaching) hospital in Tabuk. Returning to Toronto in Y2000, I switched to family practice. In 2007, began to prescribe Hormone Restoration Therapy and in 2012, I became a member of the American Academy of Antiaging Medicine [A4M]. I successfully wrote the A4M's written examination in December, 2013 and In May, 2016 I passed the oral examination, for accreditation as a BHRT consultant. In 2014 I began BHRT practice in Collingwood, Ontario and in January, 2017, joined the Stone Tree Naturopathic Clinic. Now I am 82 and have retired, but it seems wasteful to jettison my learning and experience: the medical establishment knows nothing of BHRT / Functonal medicine and I feel obliged to offer my knowledge in the interest of those who are willing to think outside the box. MY QUALIFICATIONS: MB, BS, (from UWI), 1964. LMCC 1969. FRCSC (Urology), 1974. ECFMG 1984. Florida license 1998 [inactive], ABAARM Certification [A4M], 2016. I am a Member of CSAMM [the Canadian Society for Aging and Metabolic Medicine], the OMA&CMA, SUSO, CUA, RCP&S/C. PRACTICE TO DATE: Consultation in Functional Medicine, including assessment of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Andropause, Menopause, Teenage and Postpartum Depression/Panic Attacks, Thyroid Hormone malfunction, Infertility, Sexual Dysfunction and “the Undiagnosable”. ALL ARE WELCOME to read, comment or question!
