On leaving his practice for WWE: "Quite honestly, I wasn't looking to leave the medical practice I'd built up pretty strong back in Chicago, Illinois. But I had the opportunity to send WWE my résumé, and I did. A couple of weeks later, I went out for an interview at a TV taping in Albany, New York. I got a chance to see what went on behind the scenes and speak with the staff, learn the requirements. I was intrigued about having the chance to develop their sports-medicine program not to mention the job sounded like a bunch of fun. So I left my practice to join up with WWE."
On who injures a lot of opponents: "I can't single out one Superstar. But, and this is sort of funny, there was a period of time when the joke backstage was, ‘If you're having a match with Kofi, you were going to end up with me.' So I was seeing his opponents one after the other at one point! Then there are Superstars such as John Cena, who barely frequent the training room. But when a medical issue does come up, he's good about letting us know."
