Josh Bazell (a Columbia University graduate) dedicated his best-seller Beat the Reaper ~

In Memoriam

Stanley Tanz, MD

1911-1996

This is a fascinating dedication. Bazell’s book sweeps us into a macabre hospital to meet a doctor and a patient — one of whom may be a hitman. Bazell dedicated Beat the Reaper to Dr. Stanley Tanz who wrote extensively on “Pseudo-pseudohypoparathyroidism.” This illness is strikingly similar to pseudohypoparathyroidism. Here’s an article from one of Tanz’s patients.
