1. WHAT, WHEN YOU WERE 10 YEARS OLD, DID YOU WANT TO BE WHEN YOU GREW UP?

Antonio Capone, MD: Knew I wanted to be a doctor (like my Dad) from when I was in the third grade.

Dean Eliott, MD: At age 10, I realized that anything I could possibly do when I grew up would be worse than what I was currently doing, so I wanted to stay age 10 forever.

Pauline Merrill, MD: A marine biologist (which, as Dr. Eliott can attest, I was reminded of during my first vitrectomy as a resident).

2. WHAT WAS THE FIRST ALBUM YOU PURCHASED?

Antonio Capone, MD: Grand Funk Railroad - Phoenix

Dean Eliott, MD: I never bought an album, but the first one I ever had was a Beatles album I received for my fifth birthday.

Pauline Merrill, MD: The Beatles’ Abbey Road

3. WHAT IS YOUR HIDDEN TALENT?

Antonio Capone, MD: So many to choose from: shucking oysters, singing in public to the dismay of my teenage kids, eating a rack of ribs with a fork and knife…tell me when to stop.

Dean Eliott, MD: I can sleep on command.

Pauline Merrill, MD: At this point I wouldn’t call it a talent, but my husband and I do enjoy ballroom dancing.
