Dr Gibbs diagnosed my husband in 2008 with Esophageal cancer and changed our lives forever by stirring us in the right direction of Mayo Clinic. Fast forward 10 yrs. My husband is happily retired from a 37 yr career and enjoying a cancer free (praise God) retirement. 10 yrs ago the future did not look so bright. Dr Gibbs transferred from our area right after the diagnoses, but for the short but important time he was in our lives, touched us forever! We have always keep Dr Gibbs close to our hearts and minds. Happy Doctors Day, gentleman!
