  • Dear Evelyn, Kathleen, Halim, Kerri and Nadia, We are very sad to hear about Peter's passing. We have such good memories of the times we spent together at Kerri and Nadia's Ringette Tournaments. Peter was always so supportive, and it was so nice having a Doctor with us on the trips. Our love and deepest sympathy to all of you at this most difficult time. - Posted by: Peter and Linda Lesiuk (Friends) on: Jan 06, 2022

  • I was very saddened to read of Dr. Tomy passing. He was one of the most compassionate doctors I’ve had. He sat and listened to my concerns when I was going through the most difficult and tragic times. He didn’t treat you as just another appointment like so many other doctors do. He always shared his family news and asked about mine. I was blessed to have him as my doctor. I am sorry for your loss. - Posted by: Nina W. (Patient) on: Dec 18, 2021

  • I was a patient of Dr. Tomy’s since I was around 8 years old until he retired as well as taking my kids as his patients. They also love him. He always had a smile on his face, soft spoken and so kind. He loved telling me about his family and lit up when he would tell me about his grandchildren! I was sad when he told me he was retiring but knew it was best for him. I think of him often since then as he felt like a family member. Sending thoughts, prayers and hugs to Dr. Tomy’s family, friends, former patients and all who knew him. Take care. Rest in peace Dr. Tomy. - Posted by: Dee Henschel (Patient) on: Dec 17, 2021

  • Dr. Tomy was my doctor from when I was an infant all the way up to his last years at the clinic. He would walk up to the door take a look and call out my name without even looking at my chart. He was always personable, asked how my parents were, and how things were going with my own family. I really appreciate all of his years of dedication to myself and my family. My sincere condolences to the Tomy family. - Posted by: Teresa Nault (Patient ) on: Dec 12, 2021
