I met him in the ER because his partner was not available. God put his hand down at that time. As a physician he was patient centered, kind, and you could tell that he cared about the person and not just the problem. Thinking back, I should have listened to him then and not waited the 6 weeks. Of course, not only did I not listen about my knee, but I also didn't really listen about by hip. Didn't matter - he never changed and only wanted the best for me. When I mentioned his name to others they agreed right away. When he became more specialized, and went to hands only I had the chance to visit him again once, but he was called out of town. His associate was good -- but he wasn't Dr. Stokes.
Now that he is teaching I am sure that his heart is still there and as big as ever. Keep up the good work!!
