80th Doctor Dead: Holistic, Prominent and Outspoken

It is with a heavy heart that I bring you the sad news of the death of  self described holistid Dr. James Winer of Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, just minutes from where I used to live.

I have had patients writing me all day about the news, but wanted to have a bit more information on the late great doc and outspoken radio show host before I shared this tragedy.

I waited eleven plus hours after it was announced on his public Facebook page (linked at the bottom) to share. Thousands are in  great shock about the death of this seemingly healthy man.  He had thousands of fans on his Facebook page alone and many speaking out tonight online.

The circumstances of his death, however, remained shrouded in mystery.

One reader wrote to tell us the following:

“It appears he left on Tuesday for a trip with a friend or to meet up with someone for Thanksgiving and he never returned to Pittsburgh.

My friend and I messaged me (sic) on Saturday after Thanksgiving that he was missing and we were so afraid”
“Then today my (immediate family, name withheld) was at the office and they confirmed he was found yesterday as a John Doe in hospital and they pulled the plug.  No ID on him.  Nothing.
They continued:
“My (relative at his office- relation omitted) said that everything was out of ordinary, as he checks in, never misses etc. he was a loved doctor on Pitttsburgh and speaks out often against vaccines. “
While Dr Winer was 70, he looked much younger and his patients are writing saying he was a vegetarian for 30 about years we are told. What is confusing is why he was allegedly in Florida with no identification and brought in as a John Doe, as we’d like to find out what really happened.
