Ben has the stereotypical baby face. We were sure some of his patients would question his age when he came to work for us at the Centre. It never happened. His youthful looks invoke an initial response of trepidation but one soon changes one’s attitude when he displays an impressive knowledge of neurosurgery and demonstrates wisdom and compassion, and trepidation soon gives way to total “tell me where to sign” confidence. Ben was a delight to have at the Centre and showed maturity in his neurosurgical decision making well beyond his years.
Dr Steve Carr
If you look back at all the valedictories that have been written, almost all of them contain some superlative description of the fellow. Steve will not be exempt. Without doubt, Steve Carr, is the nicest guy we’ve ever had. All the fellows are good surgeons, clinicians, technicians, intellects, communicators etc. and Steve is no exception, but no one has been as friendly, kind and considerate as Steve. Combine this with an absolute dedication to patient care and you have an amazing doctor.
Steve came to us from Denver, Colorado and will take an appointment at the University of Missouri School of Medicine. While he was here with his wife Mary, they had their first child, Benjamin. We wish them the very best of luck in the future.
