A Warm Farewell and Job Well Done to Dr. David Hatoff!
Forty years after graduating medical school, our friend and colleague, Dr. David Hatoff, has decided to retire from medical practice. Dr. Hatoff has been with Saddleback Medical Group for sixteen years as an excellent gastroenterologist, and was one of our distinguished founding fathers in 1996. It has been an honor to work alongside such a caring and compassionate doctor, and we will all miss Dr. Hatoff. We wish him well, and thank him for his loyalty and faithful service to his patients, staff, and peers. Job well done, Dr. Hatoff!
