Dr. Oshman is a servant of God and helped me in so many ways. He is a genius and always has a special place in my heart. He was hands down the greatest psychologist in the country. My prayers go out to his family. I will see him in Heaven some day.

I'm in shock to hear the news of Harvey's passing. He was my friend and helped me through the toughest days of my life. I'll remember all the great stories his humor and kindness to everyone. My condolences to his family. May you be comforted during this time of loss.

I just heard about Dr. Oshman's passing and I was shocked. I was a patient for 2 years and he helped me find more out about myself than anyone in the previous 25 years. I will deeply miss our conversations and I will always have a special place in my heart for him.

Harvey was my primary supervisor during my internship at Dallas Child Guidance back in 1981 and then my boss when I joined the staff there. Later we were mainly friends and colleagues. I am very sad not to have seen him again and caught up on life in the past years. Rest in peace, Harvey.

I was a patient of his for over four years. I had a brain aneurysm eight years ago - my wife initially made me see him and it turned into a joy. I was out of town over the weekend and just found out the details.

I always looked forward to visiting with him. In fact, I think he needed to see me once a month too.

We always had a 30 minute laughing session....

I know I am a better person for having known him!

Dr. Oshman was a good man and a friend. His willingness to share his insights and wisdom were instrumental in helping me find my way through a difficult time. I will miss my visits with him and extend my deepest condolences to his family.

We are so sad to hear about his passing. He connected with our family in a genuine way. We had just met with him Wednesday planning the next several weeks to meet with him and our son. He helped part the dog on so many frustrations we've dealt with for so long. We haven't stopped ttalking about his passing and want his family to know we were thinking of them in this difficult time.

Dr. O was an amzing man. He changed my life for the better.

I'll miss his advice, his stories, and his thoughts on his longhorns.

I'm saddened by his passing. But I'll always remember that he taught me to "savor life" and to "enjoy the ride".

I am deeply shocked. Dr Oshman was counseling my son and helping my son in improving his performance at school. My whole family is heart broken and my son had a difficult time coping with the loss. Above all, he was a friend to my son and we will miss him much.

I am heart broken, sad and shocked. Dr. Oshman has been my doctor and my children's doctor for over 6 years. We considered him a family member and just saw him Thursday. His last words to me were so encouraging and promising. I have saved the last text I received to remind me how caring and compassionate he was. Over the last few months he spent several nights about midnight each time on the phone with us helping our daughter. Not once did he say it was to late to call. He just helped us as usual. He always told us to call anytime we needed and he meant it. I will always be grateful for having him in our lives. He will be greatly missed. This world is a better place because he helped so many people. I will do everything I learned from him to pay it forward and always remember him as a mentor and someone who truly cared about people. May he rest in peace.
