85 year old patient sings ode to Rochester cardiologist
Rochester, N.Y. (WHAM) - An 85-year-old man from Medina is singing the praises of a Rochester cardiologist - literally.
Stanley Thurber recently had two stents placed in his heart at the Sands-Constellation Heart Institute.
The doctor who performed the procedure, Dr. Tejan Patel, struck a deal with Stanley while he was recovering.
Stanley would have to write him a song in order to get discharged. Stanley has been singing since he was five years old, so he wrote a song up in about 30 minutes that was ready to record.
The resulting song is a wonderful ode to Dr. Patel and a joy to hear Stanley sing in his clear, ringing baritone voice.
Stanley also wrote a song for his nurses and sang to the reception desk upon discharge.
