Dr. Murray Feingold
With great sadness, we report the passing of Dr. Murray Feingold, a specialist in birth disorders and genetic diseases and advocate for compassionate care.

Dr. Feingold spent more than 40 years treating children and campaigning for respectful and coordinated diagnosis and  treatment.  He was a long time advisor to H.A.L.O.

“Murray was my close personal friend for 20 years,” said H.A.L.O. founder Dr. Alan Pinshaw. “He was always supportive and dispensed sage advice with a cheerful attitude.”

In the 1980s Dr. Feingold founded The Genesis Fund (now The Genesis Foundation) to support the Feingold Center for Children at Children’s Hospital in Boston and created satellite clinics to serve 60,000+ children and families in Massachusetts and New England.

He also taught at Harvard, Tufts, and Boston University medical schools.

Dr. Feingold wrote a syndicated newspaper column “Second Opinion” for many years.  As one of the first medical commentators on radio and television, he was known to millions of households for the “Medical Minute” on WBZ-TV in Boston. In 2014 he was inducted into the Massachusetts Broadcasters Hall of Fame.
