What made you decide to become a gastroenterologist?
So that I could become a Hepatologist. The truth is, I really have no interest in luminal GI at all.
Who was the teacher you admired the most?
The three teachers that I admire the most are Willis Maddrey, Rudi Schmid, and Tom Boyer. They have all influenced me in different ways. I cannot put my money down on one only.
Which research paper influenced you the most?
Didier Samuel's report in the New England Journal of Medicine on the use of high dose hepatitis B immune globulin to prevent recurrent hepatitis B after liver transplantation. (N Engl J Med 1993; 329 (25): 1842-7) This opened the way to successful transplantation in HBV-infected patients who previously routinely died from recurrent HBV infection.
What is the most important fact that you have discovered?
That hepatitis C recurs after liver transplantation in those with pre-existing infection, and that the disease is progressive.
What is your unfulfilled ambition?
I have none.
What is your greatest regret?
That my father didn't live long enough to see his grandchildren grow up, and that my children never knew my father.
How do you relax?
Working out at the gym and swimming.
What is your favorite sport?
Tennis, for watching.
What is your best place in the world?
Saint John, US Virgin Islands.
What is your favorite film?
"Gone with the Wind".
What car do you drive?
A Volvo sedan.
What is your best electronic 'toy'?
My laptop computer.
What book are you reading at the moment?
I just finished "The Third Chimpanzee" by Jarad Diamond, and am currently reading "The Alienist" by Caleb Carr.
Why did you get in involved in GastroHep.com?
Roy Pounder kept hounding me.
