    Dr. Morshed is excellent all around. Stig is also stellar (not sure I'll have a spot to mention him too).

    Dr. Morshed is an expert doctor and a fine human being. My only comment is that at times I find myself wondering if he is abstaining from emphasizing certain realities in an attempt to let me live my dumb-happy life free of worry.
