Quarantine, man, you don’t know like, that living room concert you did on Fox and the first time we saw it and in this concert of stars with like Elton John, Billy Joel, everybody – the best moment of that living room concert was you. And I told my wife who’s also a doctor, it was like, you know that’s what a real doctor does, man…He’s an orthopedic surgeon. I was a general. This guy is smarter than any doctor on the planet and there’s just truly no one more talented than him. And I’m crying because I’m jealous you’re more talented than me… But I just want you to know, man, you just got us through a very difficult time and we love you so much.”
Dr. Elvis Francois (age 35) was a resident at the Mayo Clinic and just finished his spine surgery fellowship in Boston.
