Love, love this skilled and caring man! Such a pleasure to work with him when I was heading up the ER in B'ham-- he was always there if needed, whether for one of the star athletes he treated or for a local high school athlete------when we called and needed him to come to the ER he never once asked about the patient's insurance status, was always kind and personable, and treated everyone the same, whether a famous patient or a grade school athlete-- he is a truly remarkable man and well deserves any and every honor bestowed on him.
