One great doctor Mack. He charged you $10 for a visit, no appointments needed, you went inside, remembered what number you were and when called you sat behind a curtain where he stuck a gauze pad with something that opened your nose immediately. Later took you in the back room you sat in a chair, swallowed some water and he popped those ears open. Great sinus relief. Wish they were like him today.

This brings back so many memories. Dr. Crane saved my life in 1960 when I couldn't breathe and my parents rushed me to St. Francis Hospital. I also lived several doors down from this location, at 956 S. Broad, above the office of my dad's Podiatry practice. Does anyone remember him? Dr. Arnold Kimmel
