In Memory of Dr. R. Robert Simpson (1953-2004)

I first met Dr. Simpson while I was a sophomore at Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville. I was unsure which direction my medical studies would lead me and had visited the offices of several doctors and dentists in the area. My grandmother, the late June Everett, encouraged me to let her arrange for me to meet Dr. Simpson. She told me "He is the kindest physician I've ever known." I met with him once and then proceeded to spend as much time as possible over the next two years getting advice from him. His compassion was contagious. When I interviewed at the Dr. William Scholl college I not only presented my undergraduate credentials but shared with the interviewers my experience with Dr. Simpson. Instead of the usual statements after an interview they said "We look forward to seeing you in the fall". I know that my exposure to Dr. Simpson was part of my successful interview. After my residency I opened my practice in Cartersville, Georgia. As I reflect on the impact that Dr. Simpson has had on my life and the lives of many thousands of my patients, he is a clear template for how a simple act of kindness can impact the lives of so many. My career is a tribute to him and I will use his teachings to provide the most compassionate care possible. This world is a better place because he was here.

Fraternally,

Lance D. Barry
