loss of an titan

So often with titans in the medical field, there are egos bigger than buildings named after them. Not so with Dr Red Duke. The man was a legend, is a legend. One in a million. All those cliches, except in case they ar a absolutely true. He was larger than life and a model physician for everyone he touched. The patient ALWAYS came first and there was not even the slightest hint of pretentiousness.  He didn't care if it was a CEO, a president of the United States, a med student, or the cafeteria worker or the janitor. He treated everyone the same, and that was with dignity and respect.  He will be sorely missed. The story with videos at the link below are absolutely worth watching. And they are not embellishment. This cowboy, this giant among men was the real deal.
