Best ever!

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.
