DR. ANDREW KING
Addiction Medicine

Affiliation: Detroit Medical Center

Years practicing: 10

About: As an emergency physician and medical toxicologist, Dr. King created the Detroit Medical Center’s Crisis Addiction Response Transportation program, which aims to decrease opioid deaths by offering addicts a ride from the hospital to a treatment facility. King is also an associate professor at Wayne State University’s School of Medicine and boasts a lengthy resume of peer-reviewed research articles.

The patient who changed his life: “The patient who first taught me that a person may have a condition but that condition does not define them.”

Best vacation ever: His honeymoon in Kauai.

Weirdest medical question he’s been asked in a social setting: “Can you tell me if these magnets will help with my blood pressure?”

If he weren’t a doctor, he’d be … “If I were more talented, I would have been a high school band director.”

DR. OLIVER VARBAN
Bariatric Surgery

Affiliation: Michigan Medicine

Years practicing: 10

Previous years as a Top Doc: 2017, 2018

About: It’s Dr. Varban’s bedside manner that elevates his care to the highest level, his colleagues say. Patients often comment that he is professional and knowledgeable, while also being kind and caring.

What gets him excited about medicine? The opportunity to transform lives in a positive way. “I love giving patients the opportunity to become the best versions of themselves.”

The patient who changed his life: “It’s hard to choose, but I’m really honored when I see patients who are healthcare workers themselves. It means they really put their trust in our team, and I’m grateful for that.”

Fun fact: He loves theater. “Since coming to Michigan, I haven’t missed a single production at the Purple Rose Theatre in Chelsea.”

Best vacation ever: “The best vacation memories are usually about the journey and not the destination.”

Weirdest medical question he’s been asked in a social setting: “As a general surgeon, it seems no question is out of bounds. I have many examples, but I’m not sure they’re fit for print!”

If he weren’t a doctor, he’d be … A chef. “Food not only nourishes us, but also brings people together, reminds us of past traditions, and allows us to explore new cultures. Plus, cooking is kind of like surgery, in that it’s both an art and a science.”

DR. JUSTIN TRIVAX
Cardiology

Affiliation: Beaumont

Years practicing: 10

Previous years as a Top Doc: 2012-2020

About: Interventional cardiologist Justin Trivax’s first priority is being a patient advocate. On top of performing the most advanced cardiology techniques available, he works with local police and fire departments to screen first responders for potentially deadly blood-vessel buildup.

What gets him excited about medicine? “The continuously evolving technology in structural heart disease. In this field, we’re constantly pushing to develop less invasive techniques that help to reduce recovery times.”

The patient who changed his life: “The first cardiac arrest patient I resuscitated … and every single one since.”

Fun fact: “Growing up with a doctor for a father, I knew I was going to go into the profession as far back as I can remember. I also have two brothers who became physicians.”

Best vacation ever: “Any vacation with my wife and children is the best vacation ever.”

If he weren’t a doctor, he’d be … “Unemployed. If you ask my wife, it’s the only thing I know how to do!”

Pediatric Cardiovascular Surgery

Affiliation: Michigan Medicine

Years practicing: 15

About: One of only about a dozen female pediatric heart surgeons in the country, Dr. Romano is the surgical director of the Pediatric Cardiothoracic Unit at C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital. She’s also the Herbert Sloan collegiate professor of cardiac surgery at the University of Michigan Medical School and serves as a director for both the American Board of Thoracic Surgery and the Society of Thoracic Surgeons.

What gets her excited about medicine? “The chance to put a child with a significant heart defect back onto the path of a full and healthy life through a single operation.”

The patient who changed her life: “My most challenging patient. She kept throwing me curveballs, but I never gave up on her and she never gave up on me. Despite tremendous odds, she is now living a full life. She taught me to believe.”

Fun fact: She originally wanted to be a veterinarian.

Best vacation ever: “Any vacation spent on the water with my family. We spend much of our time in Harbor Springs, sailing in the summer and skiing in the winter.”

Weirdest medical question she’s been asked in a social setting: “How do doctors erase tattoos?”

If she weren’t a doctor, she’d be … An interior designer.

DR. NEENA MARUPUDI
Pediatric Neurosurgery

Affiliation: Beaumont, Detroit Medical Center

Years practicing: 5

Previous years as a Top Doc: 2019, 2020

About: In addition to her work as a pediatric neurosurgeon, Dr. Marupudi trains the next generation as an assistant professor at Wayne State University’s School of Medicine. In her practice, Marupudi takes extra care to listen to and thoroughly explain complex medical conditions to both her patients and their families in a way that empowers them.

What gets her excited about medicine: “Translating new scientific research and technology to patient care. Neurosurgery is evolving at an unbelievable pace, with creative minds working to develop new treatments. I’m excited to bring cutting-edge care to local children.”

Fun fact: As a child, she studied six styles of dance, including two South Indian classical dance forms.

Best vacation ever: “After completing my training, I took a trip to Australia and New Zealand with my mother. I then went on to Fiji, where I had an incredible scuba diving experience, diving with sharks and exploring the underwater beauty.”

Weirdest medical question she’s been asked in a social setting: “‘If you have to cut out brain during surgery, does it grow back?’ The answer is ‘No, the brain does not grow back.’”

If she weren’t a doctor, she’d be … an oceanographer.

DR. DAMANPREET BEDI
Organ Transplant Surgery

Affiliation: Beaumont

Years practicing: 10

About: Transplant and hepatobiliary surgeon Daman Bedi is the director of Beaumont’s transplant program, which boasts some of the best outcome data in the state for liver and kidney transplants. He led the team in developing cutting-edge management techniques for hepatitis C, hepatocellular carcinoma, and alcohol-induced liver injury, which have helped provide transplants for patients who would otherwise have been overlooked.

What gets him excited about medicine: “The ability to help turn around the lives of people who have been suffering, as well as the kindness and altruism of other health care providers.”

The patient who changed his life: His first kidney transplant patient. “It was the moment I saw that new kidney begin functioning, in a patient who had been on dialysis for years, that put me on the path to where I am today.”

Fun fact: He was an avid member of the University of Rochester bhangra team. “To this day, the traditional Punjabi folk dance holds a special place in my heart.”

Best vacation ever: “Stargazing over an inland lake Up North, with my daughters.”

Weirdest medical question he’s been asked in a social setting: “I was once asked by a neighbor — whom I didn’t know — to administer fertility shots for her, in the lobby of our apartment complex, because she was afraid of needles. I had to politely decline.”

If he weren’t a doctor, he’d be … “Very sad. It’s what I’ve always aspired to be.”

DR. LAMONT JONES
Otolaryngology

Affiliation: Henry Ford Health System

Years practicing: 13

Previous years as a Top Doc: 2012-2020

About: Otolaryngologist LaMont Jones has received National Institute of Health funding for his novel translational research on keloids and regularly works with Kenya Relief. But what patients most admire is his near-familial approach. Many even contact him on his personal line, with health concerns or requests for medical school application advice.

What gets her excited about medicine: “As both a surgeon and a physician scientist, the ability to change lives in both the operating room and the laboratory is exciting.”

The patient who changed his life: “Two months after I started, a baby was born premature, with Pierre Robin syndrome. Due to a small jaw, he was unable to breathe or eat on his own, until we performed the first distraction osteogenesis at Henry Ford Hospital. Two weeks later, he could breathe and eat, and was discharged. The change in his life was obvious and it solidified my reputation as a well-trained and competent surgeon.”

Fun fact: He makes a mean steak.

Best vacation ever: Spending New Year’s Eve 2019 on a boat in Sydney Harbor with his wife and two daughters.

Weirdest medical question he’s been asked in a social setting: “‘Do your ears and nose continue to grow as you get older?’ The answer is no.”

If he weren’t a doctor, he’d be … A food critic.

DR. MATTHEW WASCO
Pathology

Affiliation: St. Joseph Mercy

Years practicing: 12

About: Dr. Wasco uses his expertise as a leading physician in the field of pathology to advise hundreds of doctors and ensure optimal care for thousands of southeast Michigan patients.

What gets him excited about medicine? “The numerous variations on common disorders never fail to remind me how unique each patient is.”

The patient who changed his life: “I helped diagnose sarcoma in a young girl during a fellowship, and on a pediatrics rotation a year later I was assigned to that same patient. She was receiving chemotherapy for a recurrence. In pathology, there are few opportunities to truly connect with patients, so the time spent with her and her parents will always stick with me. It impressed upon me the importance of an accurate and timely diagnosis and affirmed my career choice.”

Fun fact: “I believe film scores contain some of the best music of the last 50 years and own a large collection of instrumental soundtracks.”

Best vacation ever: “I spent a recent Christmas with my family, at my parents’ home in New Hampshire. For a week, we did very little but spend time together in the most beautiful place I know.”

Weirdest medical question he’s been asked in a social setting: “I honestly don’t think any medical question is weird — nothing surprises me anymore.”

If he weren’t a doctor, he’d be … “Something in the chemistry field.”

Previous years as a Top Doc: 2005-2020

About: In addition to his contributions to research in the field of surgical pathology, Dr. Zarbo has chaired Henry Ford’s Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine for 21 years, leading work on lab testing innovations and the development of Michigan’s first same-day COVID-19 test.

What gets him excited about medicine? “The constant evolution and personal growth that accompany the lifelong pursuit of knowledge. They are what motivate me to rise at 4:30 each morning and embrace another day of challenges.”

The patient who changed his life: “As a pathologist, I don’t see patients directly, but I often receive numerous letters from patients whose lives I’ve impacted. I receive a card each year from one, whom I spared a major resection of her maxilla by changing her initial diagnosis.”

Fun fact: “I enjoy competing in Concours d’Elegance with old cars that made a big impression on me in my youth.”

Best vacation ever: “My most memorable vacation was a weeklong leisurely, Italian-style hike in the Dolomites, with fine dining at strategically placed alpine huts. No wonder I gained weight.”

Weirdest medical question he’s been asked in a social setting: “Is this lice?”

If he weren’t a doctor, he’d be … “I used to think college English professor would be high on my list, but with age and experience, I’ve morphed into CEO of a large, complex business.”

DR. JEFFREY KOZLOW
Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery

Affiliation: Michigan Medicine

Years practicing: 10

Previous years as a Top Doc: 2015

About: Reconstructive surgeon Jeffrey Kozlow works to correct complex oncological and other traumatic defects, frequently thinking outside the box to devise innovative surgical solutions. He also serves as a clinical associate professor of plastic and reconstructive surgery at the University of Michigan School of Medicine.

What gets him excited about medicine: “I typically meet patients when they’re at their most vulnerable, and as a reconstructive surgeon, it’s my job to ‘put them back together’ — no matter how challenging or complicated that may be. Having patients put that trust into me is incredibly powerful and motivating.”

The patient who changed his life: “As a third-year medical student, I helped care for a 5-year-old girl with a leg injury from a lawnmower. It was after this that I made up my mind to become a plastic and reconstructive surgeon. There are many patients who have helped me grow, but no other case has impacted the trajectory of my life quite so sharply.”

Fun fact: “I was a part of a two-time state champion pompom team in high school. Also, I still cry at weddings.”

Best vacation ever: Still to come. “I have four young kids — 5 and under — so I’m looking forward to sharing the excitement of a vacation with them, after the pandemic is over.”

Weirdest medical question he’s been asked in a social setting: “It’s not so much the questions that I am surprised by as it is what people will sometimes try and show me in a public setting.”

If he weren’t a doctor, he’d be … “A stay-at-home dad — but that job would be tougher than being a reconstructive surgeon.”

Previous years as a Top Doc: 2015, 2017, 2019

About: Plastic surgeon Christian Vercler has made notable research contributions in the areas of vascular and craniofacial anomalies. He’s also dedicated much of his career to upholding medical ethics. He currently chairs the C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital Pediatric Ethics Committee, the Michigan Medicine Adult Ethics Committee, and the Michigan State Medical Society Ethics Committee.

What gets him excited about medicine? “I’m able to improve people’s lives by helping them put their best face forward — literally.”

The patient who changed his life: “One patient came to me with one of the most severe forms of craniofacial clefting. Despite having five operations as a baby, she always covered her face with her hands and cowered in the corner of the room. I’ve operated on her a few times over the years, and she is now a confident, outgoing, spunky grade-schooler.”

Fun facts: “I’m married to Top Doc Kate H. Kraft, who is a world-famous pediatric urologist. I played in rock bands up until I started dating her.”

Best vacation ever: A trip to Maui with his wife and three daughters.

Weirdest medical question he’s been asked in a social setting: “Women have asked me to guess what cosmetic operations they’ve had, or even worse, to tell them what procedures I think they need. There’s no safe way to answer either of those questions!”

If he weren’t a doctor, he’d be … “I’d like to get back on track to being a rock star.”

DR. MICHAEL DOMINELLO
Radiation Oncology

Affiliation: Karmanos Cancer Institute

Years practicing: 6

Previous years as a Top Doc: 2020

About: As medical director of Gamma Knife radiosurgery at Karmanos, Dr. Dominello leads the team performing the most cutting-edge brain cancer procedure available.

What gets him excited about medicine? “The unique opportunity to listen to and be there for patients when they need help the most is what drove me toward the field of oncology and what gets me excited about medicine.”

The patient who changed his life: “In 2019, a physicist from the makers of Gamma Knife came to oversee our first day using the new device. When our second patient that day suffered severe anxiety, a 74-minute treatment became nearly four hours. Not until two physicians began a continuous conversation with him from the console microphone could he relax enough to get through it. Afterward, the physicist said, ‘Wow. We never would’ve finished this treatment at our hospital.’ That patient changed the way I think about our team and the way they deliver care every day.”

Fun facts: He plays multiple instruments, has a black belt in Tae Kwon Do, and has climbed Mount Kilimanjaro.

Best vacation ever: “In my 20s, I planned to run with the bulls in Pamplona, Spain. But upon leaving Barcelona, my bus broke down. As everything else was booked, I missed running with the bulls. Instead, I spent extra time relaxing on the beach. It was probably for the best.”

Weirdest medical question he’s been asked in a social setting: “It’s always skin questions! ‘Can you look at this?’ ‘Is this mole OK?’ ‘What do you think about this rash I’ve had for two weeks? It really itches!’”

If he weren’t a doctor, he’d be … A chef. “My specialty would be eggplant parmesan — fresh mozzarella, fresh parsley!”

DR. DAVID KWON
Surgical Oncology

Affiliation: Henry Ford Health System

Years practicing: 11

Previous years as a Top Doc: 2013-2020

About: Surgical oncologist David Kwon leads the new state-of-the-art Brigitte Harris Cancer Pavilion, which he helped to open in January. He’s also pioneering novel methods of early identification and treatment for pancreatic cancer.

What gets him excited about medicine? “Advancements are rapidly transforming cancer treatment methods and outcomes. It’s exhilarating to be a part of this change.”

Fun fact: In college, he hosted a classical music radio show, broadcasting to the New York tri-state area, and worked as house DJ at local bar.

Best vacation ever: “I enjoyed traveling with my family to Vancouver and Whistler during the summer of 2018. The food, hiking, and views were one that are forever etched in my mind.”

Weirdest medical question he’s been asked in a social setting: “I’ve had the good fortune to speak with many children about my passion for surgery. A young girl once asked whether, next time I cut out ‘a cancer,’ I could put it in a bag and bring it to her house to show her. Needless to say, I was unable to heed her request.”

If he weren’t a doctor, he’d be … “An executive chef. I’d love to lead a wonderfully trained team that delivers sublime culinary experiences.”

DR. KATE KRAFT
Pediatric Urology

Affiliation: Michigan Medicine

Years practicing: 10

Previous years as a Top Doc: 2016

About: Dr. Kraft is a nationally recognized pediatric urologist who has shared her highly sought-after expertise in panel lectures at both national and international conferences. She is also a national innovation leader in education of future urologists.

What gets her excited about medicine? “My absolute favorite part of working in medicine is the ability to heal children, providing them with the gift of a life free from suffering.”

The patient who changed her life: “My youngest daughter. She had to have surgery — albeit a minor one — last year. Everything went great, but I walked away from the experience better understanding the anxiety my patients and their families experience, which in turn has made me a better surgeon.”

Fun fact: Her husband, Dr. Christian Vercler, is also an Hour Detroit Top Doctor.

Best vacation ever: Her honeymoon in Belize. “I went on many new adventures with my new husband, including swimming with sharks and scuba diving for the first time!”

Weirdest medical question she’s been asked in a social setting: “‘Does it look OK?’ I’ve been pulled aside at more than one cocktail party to look at a baby’s circumcision.”

If she weren’t a doctor, she’d be … “A teacher, hands down. I’m so fortunate to get to teach residents and medical students every day!”
