Q: What is the best thing that happened to you this week?

A: I recently had a visit from one of my closest friends and his wife. We met in medical school and had a great time catching up on classmates, studying and more.

Q: What’s something that everyone in the world can agree on?

A: “Tough times don’t last. Tough people do.” – Julien Edelman

Q: What topic could you spend hours talking about? Why?

A: I could spend hours talking about wine. The complexity that is within each varietal is quite lovely and for me is “poetry in a glass.” I started on this “wine kick” after traveling to Italy and since then, I have really loved not only tasting but also learning about the history of wine and vine culture.

Q: Baseball players have a walkup song that plays when they get up to bat. What would your walkup song be?

A: “Shipping Up To Boston” by the Dropkick Murphys. Essentially, it’s the Boston equivalent to what “Renegade” is for Pittsburgh.

Q: What movie or movies can you watch over and over again without getting tired of it/them?

A: There are several movies that I do love, but I can honestly say that nothing beats the TV show “The Office.” I have probably seen all nine seasons at least nine times, and there are parts where I still burst out laughing uncontrollably.

Q: What food can you not get enough of?

A: A good charcuterie board, steak, or fresh seafood from home.

Q: What do you want people to know about the COVID-19 pandemic?

A: I hope we are past the worst of it, but we are still ready here at Canonsburg and throughout AHN. Keep practicing social distancing. And more importantly, if you are having a medical emergency, please don’t be afraid to come to your local emergency department. We are always here and ready to help you.
