I want to wish Dr. Steadman the very best as he enters a different phase in what is a truly an
amazing career. As Dr. Steadman’s surgical and clinic nurse for over 30 years, I had the
privilege of working alongside him in his practice at Lake Tahoe and then here in Vail. He has
been my mentor and a good friend.
I worked with him daily as he performed his wonder in surgery and then enjoyed being witness
to his kind and quiet manner with all of our office patients, weekend warriors and professional
athletes alike through the years.
I will be ever thankful that in my nursing career I had the good fortune to work alongside Dr.
Richard Steadman, who I believe is the best orthopedic surgeon ever.
God bless Dr. Steadman and Gay as they continue their journey. Thank you for sharing the
experience with me as part of the Steady Team.
