Patricia Tesik, Harvard Vanguard Medical Associates: Patricia has been our pediatric nurse since the day our first child was born, almost 19 years ago. Every single step along the way, she has answered our calls within moments, given great advice, and treated the kids with respect and humor. I have spoken with her privately so many times about various parental concerns and she always provides excellent guidance. She deserves recognition for her stellar career. —Nominated by Janet Domenitz
