Saved my life

In 1997 I was diagnosed with an avm (arterial venous malformation) in the left temporal lobe of my brain.I was so scared and knew that I had to have it removed or die.I was sent to Dr. Awad at Yale New Haven Hospital in CT. On Halloween Dr.Awad performed surgery to successfully remove the avm and save my life. I am so grateful to his expertise and skill and caring. The morning of my surgery I would not let them knock me out until I saw his face.I think they were surprised that someone would actually say this but they didn't.When he came into the or I simply said to him" ok...be careful!" He probably thought I was a crazy lady but he said 'I will". It has been 18 years and I want to thank him again for saving my life. Sincerely, Robin Cram
