My brother was head of his department (internal medicine) at Mayo Clinic Scottsdale. Because of that and my career In the medical field, I believe I am excessively critical of providers and delivery of care. I do not know how often since my appointment I've heard Dr Rose's words or reread the papers he gave me, but each time I know I did the right thing seeking information and advice from him. I sought the same from Dr Santin at Yale nearly two years ago. I am sure Dr Santin is a great researcher, but he doesn't begin to compare with Dr Rose.
