I am heartbroken to learn the news of Dr.J's passing . Dr J was a caring and clients at NEXA would often get frustaed when i was there due to the fact when DR John's and got in the same room could talk for hours . Dr John's would share his knowledge and life exspriances with you . He truly cared for everyone and the world is a little darker place with his passing . Dr. Johns didnt let the fact of you being an addict effect how he treated you or talked to you like so many other people in the addiction so often do . RIP DR JOHNS

When I was a counselor at Interventions North Side Clinic, I had the honor of working with Dr. Johns. Always interested in clients and the only MD there that I can recall who spoke with Spanish speaking clients in their own language. Never superficial and always taking that extra moment to make sure they were well cared for. Also, he treated counselors as colleagues. He was a real human being and will be missed by all who were touched by him.

My sincerest condolence to the family of Dr John. I had the pleasure of working with Dr John who was so attentive to the needs of others. Dr John always was concerned about his patients and found away to make them smile. He made me smile and think about how I can help others no matter what I am experiencing. He was truly a selfless human being with a big heart. Rest on Dr. John, I will miss you !!!
