For today’s Question of the Week, share a memory or story about which Johns Hopkins doctor has inspired you most.

My vote is for Dr. Martin Makary,
I worked with him in the Out Patient Surgery Clinic for a bit.I like him because he is not afraid of being politically incorrect. I wish more medical professionals were as up front, and direct as he is.

From personal experience on the patient end, it would be Dr. Patrick Okolo. Awesome GI proceduralist, very attentive, and so up to date on endoscopic procedures. His wealth of knowledge and general concern for his pt's well being makes me want to measure up as a nurse.

Dr. Peter McDonnell. He has steered Wilmer Eye to ever increasing levels of prominence with gentleness and humility.

Dr. Levi Watkins. So gifted and so humble.

Dr. Peter Terry! I wish he was teaching all physicians how to be an attentive doctor! He's very wonderful!

Dr. John Fetting:
Remarkable doctor, capable and caring. Great follow-up, comprehensive.
He does it all!
