Answering an Emergency Call: Yes, There Is a Doctor on Board

WHEN I travel, I try to remember a quotation often attributed to William Butler Yeats that there are no strangers, only friends you have not yet met.
I’m a retinal surgeon at University Hospitals Case Medical Center in Cleveland. When I travel in that capacity, I’m either speaking at a meeting or going someplace to help train other surgeons. I enjoy every place I go. I’m not needy when I travel. I don’t get jet-lagged. I try to just take things in stride.
But no doctor wants to hear, “Is there a doctor on board?”
