This man saved my Irish Redhead's life today. And, along the way, he cured a condition that has menaced her for twenty years. When we first met him a few weeks ago, he spent over two hours just talking to us. About the issue. About this and that. He posited certain theories. All of which came true. This morning, early, before the day long surgery, his entire team came up and introduced themselves. Described what role they were to play in the day's events. One even kissed her hand. That, friends, is the result of real leadership. Of true professionalism. Of a commitment to excellence. Of giving more than a damn.
His name is Andreas Tzakis. They say he is the best in the world. He doesn't speak of such things. Afterward, I wanted to buy him a martini. At least. He didn't have time. He was off to help someone else.
As I mentioned, they say he is the best in the world. You will never hear any quarrel with that notion from this corner.
