As I was doing the dishes on Tuesday night among bouncing children, I was absently listening to NPR and caught a familiar name. The host of Talk of Iowa was describing her upcoming show, and the guest was to be none other than Dr. Carol Scott-Conner. That's "Dr. Surgical Oncologist"! That's the surgeon who removed my cancerous left breast! I have done a good job thus far of keeping my doctors anonymous, but I am willing to "out" this one in order to share her accomplishments.
She is an award-winning surgeon and instructor. She is also very personable and genuinely seems to care about her patients, this one included. And on top of everything, she is a writer of short stories. Can you get any more amazing?
