December 20, 2018 marked the end of an era. Juan Jose Olivero, MD saw his first patient on July 1, 1970. That day, he saw his last. We celebrate a great career. He has seen thousands of patients, trained hundreds of doctors, and mentored 4 nephrologists. 

This isn’t goodbye. He’ll be around ... and we’re sure he’ll be adding to his collection of stories ... and we can’t wait to hear them.
