CandleDr. Dennis has served 3 generations of our family. He will be missed. There is just no way you can pass the office and not remember him. Our prayers for the family.

Durinda Whitehead on Oct 2, 2019

Dr. Dennis was my Dr. for over 25 years. He wasn’t just my Dr. he was my friend. As a resident of Pompano since 1964 and a PBHS graduate we had to gossip about people we knew. It was always a great visit when I would come in. He was always since a kind fun man and would share the travels he had with his family. He will be truly missed. Condolences to his family that he loved so much and was so proud of.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family Sherry. What a wonderful person your father was, I always enjoyed our visits when I visited his office. His face always just lit up when he spoke about you. I am so glad that I was able to know him. Sending love and sympathy to you and all of your family.
