dr lowe literally saved my life. i was a widow with 3 children under 3 and was diagnosed with an ulcer. i kept getting sicker until he figured out it was my gall bladder. he told me not to worry about what my insurance covered just to worry about someone watching the children. i lost 30 lbs. on his diet and never had another attack after my surgery. that man cured me of my fear of doctors. i will never forget him. i believe he lived on richman knoll.

Dr. William Scott, OD was the general practitioner who delivered me, and was also Jim Bucheister's doctor. My mom worked for Dr. Scott in the Chapman Building in the 1940s. He lived on Valencia Mesa but I don't know if he practiced in Sunny Hills.

Who were the pre-1950 Fullerton doctors and dentists, if anyone remembers?

I'd like to mention 2 wonderful Anaheim pediatricians who practiced together on La Palma in Anaheim:

Dr. Adler, MD
Dr. Sonnenberg, MD
