My heart is so heavy today, as I just found out of the passing of Dr. Habros.He was my Dr for the past 16+ years. I have never met a Dr who was more caring and compassionate.When in the office, I would on occassion hear other patients speak of Dr Habros of how much he has helped them through their illness and how much he cared and spent the extra time with each of us. It didn't matter how long we waited because we each know we would get the same excelent care and compassion from him. I am shocked and saddened by this news. I have been in prayer for most of the day for the strength, comfort and peace for all who loved this wonderful man. Toni, I am so,so sorry to hear of his passing. Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers. He truly loved and cared for each and every one of us who walked through his doors. I know, you know that.
In His Name

I just learned of Dr. Habros passing and want to extend my sincere sympathies to his family and friends. I had seen Dr. Habros since we moved to AZ in 2003 and very much appreciated his kindness and great care.

Due to an office move,I had started going to another Rheumatologist and have found them to be very kind and considerate. AZ Arthritis & Rheumatology. They are who told me of Dr. Habros passing.

Joseph Habros was my doctor for the past six years. He was the kindest, most compassionate doctor I've ever had. He always showed real warmth, interest and concern in what was going on with me as a patient and a person. I never had a doctor so gentle and attentive. He practiced a standard of medicine that I don't think exists anymore and it was an honor to be his patient. My thoughts and prayers go out to all his loved ones - friends, family, and patients. His presence was a profound one.

I have sent my private message. Dr Habros and Toni were a godsend to me.
May I ask the others who are also missing such a caring combination....
I am lost...where/who are we going to see for our medical/rheumatologist?
Has anyone found anyone at least half as caring?
Please let me know . ..

Dr. Habros has been my doctor for 17 years. He was a real doctor. He was a man that became a doctor because of his passion to help people, he gave of himself above anything else. That was evident in his care for his patients and devotion to his family. Not something we see much of anymore. He will be greatly missed!

Dear Dr. Habros, thank you for always being so kind and thoughtful. You were the nicest doctor I have ever had. You were always concerned with our foster kids, getting through my cancer and just always there ready to listen. You were more than a doctor to me. I was very blessed to have you in my life and am keeping your family and friends in my prayers. I pray you rest in peace with our Lord Jesus and your family has comfort and peace knowing they will see you again. I miss miss you very much.
