On Saturday, I called Athena Berning after needing an assistant for a surgery that was going to be happening. She was graciously accepting of coming in to assist the doctor with a laparoscopic procedure even though she wasn't on call. It ended up the surgery went from laparoscopic to an open procedure in which it would have been much more difficult to complete if Athena had not been able to come in to assist. Thank you, Athena, for going above and beyond by coming in on a Saturday afternoon...without hesitation and taking time away from your family. (And this isn't the first time she has done this for our doctors).
