One of our readers suggested we do get to know you posts profiling our docs. Sure thing.
First up: Dr. Lash.
Were you named after anyone?
-My middle name is a shortened version of my Mom’s maiden name.
Do you have kids?
-Yes. Two sons, teenagers. They are smart and talented and great kids.

-Nope. They didn’t make it through my many surgeries for cleft lip and palate.
Would you bungee jump?
-No way. But I have rappelled a few times.
What is your favorite ice cream?

What is the first thing you notice about people?
-Their facial expressions. I try to figure out if they are having a good day or a really bad day.

Favorite sports to watch?
-Big surprise here– SOCCER, FUTBOL, FUTEBOL, CALCIO, etc.
