Mark Devitt

First off my sincerest condolences on the passing of a great man. I owe my life to the doctor who my family reffered to as Dr God. From my birth he noticed a pea like bump along my spine, if he hadnt found the lump I would probably not made it to my teens, I am 57 now, At age 19 he saw me and noticed I had a blood clot in my right leg, he and the team at Columbus hospital were able to disolve the clot and I kept my leg. Dr God saved me again. I am truly sorry to hear about your lose.

Our experience of kindness by Dr. Weiss occurred over 51 years ago when our oldest daughter was 7 months old. Since her birth, she had developed high fevers and infections at least once each month. Many different antibiotics were used and they finally caused a severe rash over her entire body. After admitting her to Columbus Hospital in Chicago, a series of tests were administered over an 8 day period. Although her rash did heal, she again ran a high fever on the 8th day. Dr. Weiss called us and asked for one more day and one more test. The following morning he called again to tell us he finally determined the cause of her problems. In the months that followed our daughter was infection free as the shots he prescribed resolved the previous problems. Then as she grew older, her own system became significantly stronger. Our memories of that worrisome time remind us of the kindness and caring of Dr. Weiss and his ability and patience in helping thousands of children like our daughter. Many years later our daughter crossed paths with Dr. Weiss once again, this time as the doctor for Dr. Weiss' daughter and son-in-law. Through conversations with her patients, she recognized the name Dr. Weiss and so it was determined that he was the same Dr. Weiss who treated her long ago. Our deepest condolences reach out to Dr. Weiss' circle of family and friends. He will always be a remarkable symbol of kindness, caring and magnificent medical skill. He has made the world a far better place. May he rest in peace and may the memories of him be beautiful ones.
