I was on vacation earlier this summer & just recently read this obituary: I send my most heart-felt condolences for your loss. My experience with Dr. Deren, and I am MOST surprised to read referrals to him as 'Mickey' because he exuded a medical persona that deserved a little more formality; was as a CCU RN at Backus, assisting with bedside chest tube insertion: prior to the procedure, he was in a music state of mind, fortunately for me, in

I was sad to learn of the recent passing of Dr. Deren. I worked in his private office for almost 14 yrs before my retirement. He was the kindest and best boss and man I ever knew.
