RR: When I was a fellow at Stanford, we had a Cedars-Sinai patient go through a heart and lung transplant with us. She was a Mexican patient and spoke very little English, and she got almost every complication you can have with a transplant. 

I was with her basically every day of her three-month stay, because I was able to communicate with her and her family in Spanish. She recovered and went back to L.A. But every year, I would ask her lung transplant doctor how she was doing.

When I started working here, I learned she is still a patient, so we arranged a visit. I was so happy to see her. She came with her mother, who was also very happy to see me. She remembers the hard times she had with her daughter during the transplant, when I had been there always explaining to her what was going on. 

When you make that difference in people’s lives, it really gives you a lot of satisfaction.
