It is with much sadness that we farewell Dave back to the Barrow Neurological Institute for his last 12 months of training. He will be sadly missed by all my patients who had the good fortune to be touched by his compassionate nature and conscientious clinical attention. Dave will be remembered for his pleasant manner, clinical acumen and neurosurgical excellence. Many girls will remember him for his good looks and charm, but having shared a hotel room with him, I would like to warn them that he snores! Dave Wilson is a lovely man and a fine neurosurgeon. His patients will be blessed having him care for them both in and out of the operating room. We wish him the best of luck in his future career.
Reid came to us from UCSD, San Diego, with a glowing reference from one of my old and dear friends, Larry Marshall. Those of you who know Larry, know that Larry does not mince his words. If Larry doesn’t like someone, then that person knows it and so does everyone else, even if they don’t want to know! So when Larry told me that Reid was a solid doctor with excellent clinical skills, I believed him.
So far, Reid has not disappointed us…..stay tuned…..he may topple all the previous fellows when it comes time to rank the best of the best!
