    Dc. Stabler helped me when no other Dr would listen. He is still helping me by giving me to the next doc with my prescriptions. Not only me, he has helped many that I know of. He will be missed. Very sad. He was a hero from birth to the end. RIP.

    • Helen McKinney says:

      Dr Gary Stabler was who found my heart issue. He was the most understanding of Dr there ever was. He had also lived very close to me. We were more like friends than Dr patient in a great way! Not sexually or romantically. He was a perfect kind of Dr. He will be missed by myself and so many people

  2. Curt Ward says:

    I remember Gary as a kind and gentle man with a wonderful sense of humor. We shared a love of history and sports. He was too nice to be cynical, but enjoyed a good joke. I am sorry for your loss.

    • Kimberly Roberts says:

      Gary was a terrific doctor. He would take the time to listen and discover medical problems other doctors would miss because they were always in such a rush. He was very compassionate and always made you feel comfortable. Doctor Stabler was kind, gentle and extremely intelligent. His laugh was contagious. He will be missed but not forgotten. He is surrounded by Angel’s and is smiling down on us today.
