Dr. Sugar was such a wonderful man and doctor. He was my doctor for alot of years. To his family and his office staff that were also family my heart felt wishes go out to them. He was the best doctor in Sussex County doing what he loved. I will miss his seance of humor, long stories and the time he always took with patients. Rest in peace Dr. Sugar you will be missed.

To Dr. Sugar's Staff, Dr. Julie and family. I am so sorry to hear of Dr. Sugar's passing, he was such a wonderful man. My son Peter remembers Dr. Sugar sewing up his arm after his sister helped him through a plate glass window. Dr. Sugar was a very knowledgeable and quick witted and compassionate. I remember when I was a little girl going to his house when my grandmother had a doctors appointment and just watching the fish in his aquarium and then when he moved his office, I always wondered how he got he got the Marlin fish to stay up on his wall!! He on the told me it just jumped there and got stuck!!! I sure wish there were more doctors like him in the field. Rest in peace Dr. Sugar, I hope there are some great hills for skiing in Heaven.
