  1. Dr. K not only is a great teacher, but a supportive, kind person. When I was at UVA and far from my family, he was visiting his alma mater and I happened to fall extremely ill. He and his wife rushed me off to the hospital and proceeded to take care of me the *entire* night in the emergency room. I knew no doctor, resident or nurse would dare push me to the side with the K’s as my advocate. Wahoowah to a great honor to a deserving candidate!
