Max Gomez: Longtime TV Medical Reporter

From a New York Times obit by Richard Sandomir headlined “Max Gomez, Longtime TV Medical Reporter, Dies at 72”:

Max Gomez, an award-winning medical and science journalist who delivered informed reports for more than 40 years on TV stations in New York and Philadelphia, most recently during the Covid-19 pandemic, died at his home in Manhattan.

Billed as “Dr. Max,” he brought an easygoing gravitas to reporting on subjects like vaccinations, knee replacements, prostate cancer, colonoscopies, sickle cell anemia and, when he himself contracted them, Lyme disease and the MRSA infection. One of his reports on Alzheimer’s disease focused on his father, a physician, who was swindled as his memory abandoned him.
