Play of the week also goes to Drs. Marianna Caballero and Andrew Warren who received the following message praising their care from the family of a teen patient who was seen as an ER consult, who had a VERY long day, and the team identified a working diagnosis and follow-up plan: "The whole WR team was just great.
