AVONDALE — Dr. Fred Goldman still makes house calls.

He must, he explains. That’s where the patients are.

“If they’re sick and can’t leave home,” he said, “I go to see them.”

At 100, the doctor is still in | Cincinnati.com | cincinnati.com

She was once the oldest practicing pediatrician in the world, until she retired in May 2001 at the age of 103.[1] She is one of the rare supercentenarians known for reasons other than longevity. At age 113 years, 316 days, she is currently the 5th-oldest verified living person in the world and the 4th-oldest verified living person in the United States. On 27 November 2011, at age 113 years 299 days, she became one of the 100 oldest people ever.
