Doreen's Family,

I had the privlege of knowing Dorren as I am a patient of Dr Lee Davis. I can not begin to tell you how much worry that she saved me from going through. I am a 3 time cancer survivor so whenever I called the office, she took the call and if need be, got me in immediately instead of waiting over a weekend. Her concern was genuine eventhough she had so much to bear herself. We commensurated with each other and then would move on to share each other joys, family. I miss her as a person and as a pivotal member of my medical team. Prayers to Doreen's Family, friends and fellow coworkers.

Doreen's loss will be felt by so many women patients of Dr. Davis, including myself.She was always so interested in hearing stories of our family and telling some of her own.Always smiling and bantering with the doctor! Twenty years of visits,that at the last one in the fall I heard the news. God wanted his family together and sent for Doreen. Your family is in our prayers, as your hearts ache for these last years of family loss.

I was saddened when I saw the obituary in the paper that Doreen had passed away. I have known your Mom for many, many years through the practice of Dr. Lee Davis. Doreen was the person that I was always happy to see. After giving birth to 3 children (delivered by Dr. Davis) I would attend my yearly check-ups and chat with her. We would catch up on a year of information, I would ask her how her knee surgery was holding up, she shared with me the passing of your dad, things that were important in her life that had occurred during the year and she was always willing to listen to my stories too. I will truly miss our talks while I waited for Dr. Davis to enter the examining room. What a wonderful, wonderful woman! She will truly be missed by many women that you don't even know...like me. I wanted to pass on my condolences to you and your family. I am very sorry about the loss of your mom. Please know that she is with your dad and you have angels looking over you. Sincerely, Lisa DeLeo

On my last visit with Dr. Davis I missed Doreen. She was such a part of the office. I expected her to come in the examing room all smiles, as usual. She always made me feel at ease and relaxed. We had alot of laughs together and I will sorely miss her.

To Doreen's Family,

I knew Doreen through being a patient of Dr. Lee Davis. Doreen was always the face that greeted me when I walked through those doors and I cannot tell you how much I appreciated who she was and the kindness she showed me there.

In 2009, I was diagnosed with a rare and serious form of cancer. For a time previous, up to, and after my diagnosis and treatment, I was at Dr. Davis' office a lot and Doreen was always helpful and kind. She listened and understood. When I was sick as could be, she was an angel to me when I walked into that office and that is something I will always remember about her. She was just an awesome person and she is someone I will miss greatly.

I am so sorry for your loss and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers.
