Where does one start when trying to describe a phenomenon? I have only accepted a fellow sight unseen on 2 previous occasions but there was no way I could get Andy Parsa off my back until I said yes. Those of you who knew Andy, knows that he was the consummate resident advocate and in his opinion Omar HAD to learn my techniques….there was no compromise. He must’ve called me 20 times pushing for me to say yes and I was so pleased that I accepted Omar only 5 days before Andy’s tragic and sudden death.

I don’t know where to start when elucidating Omar’s amazing qualities. It just has to be in point form…

• Kind and generous person
• Loving and devoted husband to Maya
• Skilled surgeon
• Courage and conviction both in and out of the operating room
• Dedication to every thing he takes on
• Affable and sociable
• Takes computers apart as a hobby!
• Delightful traveling partner
• Good bloke

It was a privilege and a pleasure having him as our fellow….and even more pleasurable getting to know his gorgeous wife, Maya. They will be sadly missed by me, my family, our staff and all their many friends that they made during their time in Sydney. Omar is now an Assistant Professor of Neurosurgery at Harvard Medical School and we wish him the best of Aussie luck…..our loss is their gain!!!!
