Fred and I are friends since med school and he has always been a phone call or text away. No matter what time. I have transferred him patients which he took with no hesitation. Well a dear friend of mine was dying from a systemic infection from a leg wound, I texted him in the middle of the night because the hospital where my friend was had run out of options. Fred not only said he’d take him, he had him up there the next morning. He saved not only his life but his leg. My friend is living life again due to this soft spoken surgeon.
