  1. As others have written, Dr. David D. Menon took such amazing care of me for 33 years (since my MIT student days) and my family; I’m simply heartbroken. The office phone wasnt picking up since late November- still have no idea how to obtain medical records or what to do next as there’s been no communication or notification. Simply irreplaceable, and I remain at a loss- unsure how to move forward. Wishing could celebrate his life in a suitable manner. He always spent as much time with each of us as we needed; he was a good friend throughout these years. I’m forever grateful for his time and caring expertise. May he rest in peace; may his family find solace in loving thoughts from those that knew him and cared deeply.
