  1. Dr. Bernadette Kutcher, D.O.

    I did some training with Dr. Leon Stein when I did my internship, but I also knew him as my relatives’ doctor and community leader. He was always seeking knowledge in all areas besides medicine, and he gave of his time and talent without hesitation. May he rest with God.
