Stuart went above and beyond to ensure these proud parents would not miss this once-in-a-lifetime moment.

One of my patients suffered a stroke just days before she was set to travel to New York to watch her only daughter graduate from law school.  Her husband and daughter agreed she should attend her graduation as planned and he would watch online from the hospital.  When his cell phone malfunctioned at the last minute, Stuart retrieved his personal iPad to hold it up and live stream the ceremony for the couple.  Even with a heavy caseload, Stuart went above and beyond to ensure these proud parents would not miss this once-in-a-lifetime moment.  I feel he should be recognized for his compassion and patient-centered care.  The husband could not stop gushing gratitude, even several days later.
