Revered doctor known for personal touch
By April KEMICK, Free Press Reporter
A prominent and well-loved London doctor, who saved countless lives in a 35-year career at St. Joseph's Health Care, died Thursday.
Dr. David MELTZER, credited by colleagues as a pioneer in oncology in London, died of heart problems at age 86.
"So many people owe their lives to David," MELTZER's cousin, Alan COHEN, said of the quick-witted doctor.
"He was an incredible man and an incredible doctor."
MELTZER, the youngest of eight children born in Manitoba, planted roots in London in the mid-1940s, when he met and married his wife, Zivia, during his military training in Clinton.
After serving in the air force overseas during the war, he enrolled in medical school at University of Western Ontario in 1946.
His long and distinguished career at St. Joseph's began in 1955, when he was hired on in hematology, a branch of medicine dealing with the blood.
For more than three decades, he worked at the hospital in both hematology and oncology, earning a reputation not only for medical skill, but also for personal touches that made him a favourite with patients.
"He had this really wonderful and unique ability to bridge the science of oncology and the art of caring for patients," said Dr. Don TAVES, a former student and colleague of the revered London doctor.
"He had a remarkable wit and a wonderful sense of humour and he was loved by many of his patients," Taves said.
MELTZER, a "master joke-teller" whose jokes numbered in the thousands, was also well liked by the nuns who worked at the hospital.
"I think he's the only person who could tell an off-colour joke to a nun and get away with it," said cousin Phyllis COHEN. "He had them coming back for more."
Even with his dedication to medicine in London, the avid cyclist and golfer always made time for family, said his two grown children, Sari and Alan.
As he helped with the city's first chemotherapy treatment and localized successful medical treatments used elsewhere, MELTZER fostered a wonderful family life.
"He was very, very involved with raising us," his son said. "He was a father who took a lot of pride in his children."
MELTZER, who had an oncology ward at St. Joseph's and a University of Western Ontario scholarship named in his honour, held his family as one of his greatest achievements, said his daughter.
"He said at my wedding, 'Of all the titles I've been given over the years, the most important one was Dad,' " she said.
