Notable quotes from Dr. Macasaet’s interview:

It’s not about the short-term sprint, but the life-long pursuit of the Dopa-Oxy-Tocin thing.
In the best case scenario, I have to sit up at night, and get up in the morning, and think about this stupid case. That allowed me to see the true reality of Chicago.
Like everything, either we see adversity as something that is going to leave us damaged, or, adversity has something that is inevitable, and often results in more positive than negative.
Use Social Media for something good, which is how do we share all these hacks, and work-arounds, and workflows. It’s been an adventure.
To be so appreciated for being there. Not occasionally, but almost always was such a feeling for an urban emergency doc.
