1. WHAT IS YOUR ALL-TIME FAVORITE MOVIE?

David S. Boyer, MD: The Godfather

Timothy G. Murray, MD, MBA: BOND, James Bond. Sean Connery was amazing, and I have had coffee with him. Daniel Craig has revitalized this franchise. I am an action movie aficionado.

Michael Trese, MD: Blazing Saddles or any other Mel Brooks movie

2. WHAT KIND OF CAR DO YOU CURRENTLY DRIVE?

David S. Boyer, MD: A very old Mercedes SL 55

Timothy G. Murray, MD, MBA: I drive the Lexus SC 430 convertible. I like to think of it as a classic, but it is truly just OLD (2003 model year, but I still love putting the top down on a beautiful Miami day).

Michael Trese, MD: Porsche Panamera

3. WHAT IS YOUR PRE-SURGERY RITUAL OR ROUTINE?

David S. Boyer, MD: One cup of decaf coffee; 30-45 minutes before surgery, I review all workups of patients I am operating on and mentally plan the surgery and make sure I know any allergies or other potential problems (asthma, sleep apnea, on anticoagulants, etc.).

Timothy G. Murray, MD, MBA: I typically arrive at the OR 30 minutes before surgery, review the entire surgical schedule, specifically review the chart for the next case. I focus on vision preoperatively, review the anatomical imaging, confirm the staff/equipment and room configuration, preoperative timeout and personally mark the surgical eye, personally perform a peribulbar block with intravenous sedation from my anesthesia team, and then I visualize my planned surgical approach. Needless to say, I LOVE surgery and continue to teach throughout my cases.

Michael Trese, MD: To be on time realizing anything can happen in the OR
