I am new to the board but wanted to add a few fabulous docs at Barnes (St. Louis, Missouri).
Dr. David Linehan-Chief of hepatobiliary-pancreatic and GI surgery-THE best!
He did three surgeries, in three days, on my dad and two started before dawn! I think he may have spent more time than his residents and fellows(later to be known as an entourage larger than Lady Gaga's), in the ICU, that first week after my dad's surgery.
Dr. Benjamin Tan-Oncologist/Hematologist; Very conservative in treatment but very knowledgeable and caring. He has a star of a right hand wo(man)...his main nurse and our life line, Joan James.
Dr. Ida Fox-Not many of you will need her, but she is a plastic and reconstructive surgeon and AMAZING!!! My dad is a big guy (6'2", 250+pre-surgery) and his entire abdomen was left open after complications of the Whipple (x3). She did an amazing job and had a beautiful pencil line scar...before he had an awful encounter with MRSA...but not Dr. Fox's fault.
Dr. James Duncan-Interventional Radiology-I have had less face time with him, but he has been there through it all.
Dr. Jeffrey Crippin-Transplant surgeon...He turned us down, but he is one of the best!
If anyone has questions, feel free to email me!
