Dr. Abraham Chames, co-founder of PediStat and PediPec, passed away, suddenly, in 2008. Dr. Chames embodied the commitment of PediStat and PediPec to medical professionalism and compassionate care. Compassion was the animating force of his life’s work. His acts of kindness for his patients, employees, community and people of all walks of life were the stuff of legends. His impact was so powerful that a local high school was renamed for him after his untimely passing.
Dr. Chames was a driven man. But he was not driven by materialism or the need to succeed at any cost. Instead, he was driven by a boundless love that did not discriminate. His infectious love became the inspiration for the motto of the companies he established – We Love Our Kids. He was a larger-than-life personality who was a friend to all, especially to the smallest and most helpless among us.
We are proud to dedicate this site to his cherished memory.
