Professor Paul Ngigi Kioyi took my painful trouble as his own. He did nerve conduction studies on me back in 2008, and saw me in several subsequent visits. May his soul Rest in Eternal Peace

This Giant of a man walked me through MG. Held our hand, and always gave is his ear. He was worth a 4 hour wait at his reception.
This is so very painful. Rest in Peace Prof. And may peace and strength be granted to your family.

Still in shock! Saddest day for his patients especially those living with Multiple Sclerosis. May they find comfort and most of all a good doctor who will help them cope with their situations.

Rest in peace Prof, you diagnosed my condition at a time when a renowned medical institution was misdiagnosing my condition. I am forever greatful.

This is truly sad! A personal loss to me. Prof. Kioy walked me through a difficult 3 year period to full recovery and I and my family owe my life to his good work dedication and faith. May his soul Rest in Eternal Peace.
