In December of 2019, Maryland's Lower Eastern Shore community was stunned to learn of the sudden passing of Dr. Ignatius DiNardo at the age of 62.

Affectionately known as "Iggy", Dr. DiNardo was one of Salisbury's most beloved physicians practicing internal medicine.

He has been described as a compassionate healer who devoted his life to helping others through his kindness and his willingness to listen to his patients.

In addition to his private practice, DiNardo served as a hospitalist at Atlantic General Hospital (AGH) in Berlin, Maryland, as well as serving as an expert witness with Coastal Internal Medicine.

Now, his widow Joanie and his three children--Greg, Lilly and Madeline--have initiated Ignatius Dinardo Foundation which is dedicated to helping patients who cannot afford medical care for chronic and life-threatening conditions.

Iggy's son, Greg, talks about how the foundation preserves and honors the memory of the late Dr. DiNardo by helping others.
