    Washington, DC |
    Dr. Spray is the best surgeon I Know. My youngest son received two double lung transplants in May/Jun 1998 and both operations were performed by Dr. Spray. He was not scheduled to work on the day my son was scheduled for his 2nd transplant on June 19, 1998, but he came in to perform it since second transplants are more difficult. This attests to his dedication and commitment. My son is alive and well today 19 years after his second transplant. I will always be grateful to Dr. Spray.
