Dr. Stein has been instrumental in introducing me into Japan over 20 years ago. At that time, I was a medical student on a three-month medical elective and wanting to find out about medical practise in Japan. Dr. Stein was teaching clinical medicine at Kameda Medical Center. I learnt many important aspects about medicine in Japan, the difference of US versus UK medical concepts, and Dr. Stein's own personal approach to medicine.
We have been close friends and colleagues ever since. He's my guardian angel.
