A man I never knew, but known well by those he served. I will enjoy meeting him in heaven. I read the following:A Diplomate of the American Academy of Family Physicians, Tony gained a reputation for superb medical judgement and clinical excellence. He treated many thousands of patients, some spanning over three generations. His diagnostic skills and medical instincts were uncanny. Tony was devoted to ensuring that his patients - old, young, rich, poor, and from whatever station in life - received his utmost dedication and the best of care, often finding ways to overcome bureaucratic obstacles and hospital red tape. With the patients' best interests in mind, Dr. Anthony would call upon, cajole, consult, and otherwise persuade specialists, sometimes at distant locations, to take care of his patients' needs. He enjoyed teaching and mentoring budding physicians in his role as Associate Clinical Professor at Drexel University's medical school. At Monmouth Medical Center, he was Chairman of the Family Practice Department for many years, and also served as a member of the Ethics and Credentialing committee. In 2005, Dr. Anthony was granted the hospital's highest honor, the Pinnacle Award of Service.

Tony is someone to hold dear as he will never truly leave us. He lives on in the kindness and caring he is known for and the comfort he gave to all, not only his patients. I hope that beautiful memories give all his family strength in these difficult hours.

Dr. Sahar lived a great life, filled with accomplishments. He lived to help others. He was loving, caring, and generous. His patients loved him. Those who worked with and for him loved him. His passing is a great loss, but he lived to inspire others. We pray for comfort and peace for his family and numerous friends.

I was a patient of Dr. Marianne since they started their practice until she retired. Then I switched over to Dr. Anthony. He showed great interest in his patients and he took very good care of me. When my husband had double bypass surgery Dr. Anthony took the time to come into the waiting room to speak to my husband about his surgery eventhough my husband wasn't a patient of his. I thought that was a very nice thing to in his busy day of practice. I will miss him as all of his patients will. My condolences to Dr. Marianne and her family in this very sad time.

My heart is heavy with hearing of the passing of Dr. Anthony. My condolences to Dr. Marrianne and her family. He was so kind to my father when he was ill and took such good care of him when he arrived right off the plane from Florida. It will never be forgotten. May he rest in peace. Deanna, Tom, Nicole and Jessica

To the whole Sahar family: I am so sorry that I can not deliver my condolences in person. Dr Sahar has a special place in my family's heart and he will be greatly missed. My parents Anna and Frank Torchia have been under his care for years, and I was always so grateful for the care and patience he took with them. I will always remember the weekly visits that he made to their house. My mother treated his visits like a social occasion...she would prepare espresso and always have the forbidden desserts he so loved. The conversations were lively and the care exemplary! He will be so missed by all of us!

What a vibrant and dynamic man - wow, he will certainly be missed. The Drs. Sahar office was our most trusted & reliable source for health concerns. Always caring and responsive, both Dr. Anthony & Dr. Marianne were patient and reliable sources for us (and for so many others!). Our deepest sympathies to the whole family.

Please accept our deepest sympathy at the loss of Dr. Sahar. Richie and I were both patients of Dr Anthony and Dr Maryanne. We always felt confident that our doctor was listening to us, observing us and making appropriate suggestions for our well being and to maintain good health. Practical, knowledgeable, thorough and sensitive. Thank you for being our physicians, and making us feel we were always in good hands. Our prayers and thoughts of sincere sadness are with you today. Kathy and Richie

Tony Sahar was more than my cousin. He was like a kind, brilliant elder brother. Tony was always inspiring, funny, and dedicated. He had a great sense of humor and a wonderful laugh. So many memories of such a one-of a kind man. Tony's Christian faith was an inspiration to us all. He's with Our Lord, and many family members who welcome him home. Although we are bereft, we can comfort ourselves and each other in the knowledge that we will join him and the Heavenly host. My husband Larry and I grieve for him so very much. I am crying as I write this story for my darling cousin. Our thoughts and prayers to his most beloved wife, Nanny, and his fantastic children. We also pray for his brother and sisters that God may comfort them. "I am the Resurrection and the Life. Those who believe, will never die."
