“He’s a natural emergency doctor and he’s been through it all. He’s a teacher and it just flows through his veins and shows through his level of understanding. To be an emergency guy, you have to be able to see things and fix things, but more importantly you have to be an advocate of the patient first. That’s what he is.”
