For those of us who knew Dr. John Head as a friend, he was a great guy. As a doctor, there was none better. He was wonderful.
Dr. Head passed away on March 2nd. His death came as a shock to many of us. I knew him as a friend and he was also my personal physician. No one was more thorough than Doc. The office would always be packed with patients waiting to see him. It did not matter. Each and every patient that came in to see him got individual attention no matter how long it took.
Dr. John Head, MD graduated from Louisiana State University School of Medicine in Shreveport in 1980. He then went on to complete his residency and has been practicing medicine ever since. For almost 40 years Dr. Head has been serving his patients with unparalleled kindness. He is currently the primary doctor at Oaks Medical Plaza in Bradenton Florida. According to a Sarasota Post reader, Dr. Head treated her as though she was the only patient and felt very well taken care of. Dr. Head had a plethora of positive patient experiences, many of which have been published online.
