    He was one of the best and most caring doctors I ever had. I’ve missed him since he retired. I am so sorry for your loss.

    Rest in Peace, Dr. Magid. You delivered all three children for me and my late wife, Linda, and for your care I have always been grateful.

    Dear Carolyn and Family,
    I work at Westside Middle School in the reading program. One of my responsibilities is overseeing the volunteer mentoring program in which Bernie participated for several years. I always enjoyed greeting him on Wednesdays when he came and visiting a bit before he left. I was touched by his thoughtfulness when he sent me a beautiful green plant in May of 2017 when I had colon surgery. I can imagine that he was an excellent doctor! My sympathies to all of you.

    Dr. Magid was a terrific doctor. He brought two of my sons into the world. He was always so passionate about the care the nurses gave during labor. Always looking out for his patients. When he retired it was hard to find a doctor with Dr Magid’s bedside manner of true caring. Dr. Magid delivered my friend’s three children and when she has some issues during labor and delivery Dr. Magid stayed by her side until the crisis passed.
    Sorry you have to grieve for him and our hearts are with you.
    As a patient from 50 years ago – Thank You for being there!

    Dr. Magid delivered all four of our children. He was compassionate and caring and I thank him for all the great care he gave me and our family during labor and deliveries. Missed you a lot when you retired. Thanks for always being there when we needed you!
    Your patient from the sixties! Rest in Peace!!!

    Dr. Magid, My miracle worker! We had our first son in 1977, & had no success on our 2nd child. That’s when I met Dr. Magid. My problem was endometriosis. After 6 surgeries, & only a stub of one ovary, I got a call from the nurse. I could hear Dr. In the background “don’t you tell her… I get to! He was ecstatic! You’re pregnant! He delivered our son on JAN 30th 1988. That child just had a child……the circle of life continues May God bless you Dr Magid, & wrap his loving arms around you & your family!
