Larry BovardAs a former employee of Group Health and a competitive cyclist I would love to tell the story of my accident.

I felt very apprehensive about finding a good doctor with a caring attitude.

After being hit by a car, I could have lost my leg. With the teamwork of Dr. Ann Gorai and Dr. Jonathan Knight from Bellevue Medical Center orthopedics, three surgeries, and lots of therapy, I am riding my bicycle again. I was able to ride up the road to Sunrise on Mount Rainier, which is the highest paved road in Washington state.

It is quite a story and incredible result of great team work.
