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.
