Nancy Beagle says Dr. Neulander saved her life, "by removing my uterus and cervix and the pre-cancer so I could stay alive and keep being a mom to my son. You helped me tremendously move on emotionally and physically and accept I could just have no more biological kids which I didn't like or want to hear or ever thought I'd get thru but I did because of u."
Antoninette Williams Peterson wrote that Dr. Neulander is responsible for her overcoming infertility, "Without Dr. Neulander I would have never been able to say today that I have children. He is a Dr. with compassion and heart. I truly cannot see this man who is so willing to help make a life just take it away."
Brenda Hamilton wrote, "No one really knows what goes on behind closed doors or in a family home except for the people that live there. There must be doubt about the cause of death if there is an investigation now."
