It is with a heavy heart that we say goodbye to a great man, mentor, teacher, and emergency physician. Dr. John Sarko passed away on December 23rd, 2014. He completed his training in Emergency Medicine at Maricopa and has been part of the faculty for the past 15 years. He was an active contributor to the U of A Medical School and to medical students in the department. Any resident who had the privilege of working with and learning from Dr. Sarko can attest to the impact he had on their education and practice of Emergency Medicine. He was a brilliant Emergency Physician with a kind, gentle heart and a quick, dry wit that will truly be missed but never forgotten. Please keep him, his wife and 2 children, and the Copa family in your thoughts and prayers. Information about Services in his honor can be found here.
