Today one of my patients came into our office. He’s been our patient over 10 years.
He grew up in LA and went to college at University of California San Diego. He then received a microbiology PhD at the University of Wisconsin Madison and then did further training at the University of Chicago for microbiology.
Basically he’s done a lot of schooling.Matt is one of these “Aw Shucks” kind of guy. When you give him a compliment, he totally downplays it. But I’m going to brag about him because he won’t do it.
Just before some states in America went into shutdown, Matt and his team were given a very important assignment. They were to develop a testing system that will help identify which people were carrying the COVID-19 virus.
The higher ups at his company, gave them a very aggressive deadline. They were to develop this testing system in just 3 weeks. Matt and his team hopped right to it.
Then his bosses were asked to go to the white house and give their report as to the development of testing.Upon return from Washington, the company executives told Matt’s team, they had to get the testing system completed in just 1 week.The urgency to get tests was at the highest level and they threw all of their resources to get this task done. And they DID IT!
Matt said it was one of the most intense times in his life. He worked non stop. He’d get home, asleep in bed and all of the sudden at 1am his phone was ringing. It would be one of the bosses, calling him reminding him of something or asking him for more information on their project.
They accomplished the one week deadline and manufactured America’s high volume testing system. I just want to acknowledge Matt for his hard work and helping us to stay safe.
Please watch my video, so I can brag a little more about Matt:
