Dr. John Feist

Dr. John Feist, a renowned chest radiologist at the University of Pittsburgh for 40 years passed away peacefully in his adopted state of Vermont. John was one of the founding fathers of the Department of Radiology. He started his radiology career at the University of Pittsburgh in 1957 and he was key contributor to the department’s exponential growth. He memorialized those early success in a 1994 AJR article: Dr. Feist was the interim Department Chair in the late 1960s and was the Director of Outpatient Radiology at the Falk Clinic in the early 1980s. He was a Fellow of the American College of Radiology and was a past President of the Pennsylvania Radiological Society. His close connections to the medical center, the department and close colleagues were paramount to him and he continued to be a model of dignity, grace, and intellectual curiosity after his retirement in 1997.
