"It was a pretty complicated case. But she, if I say so myself, did a really good job," the proud dad told People.
It was their first-ever working relationship and the dad, who boasts 30 years of experience, was delighted to work with his ambitious daughter.
Good set of hands
Harold could not stop praising his gorgeous daughter, a second-year resident in a seven-year program training at Washington University.
"She's got a good set of hands and a very good head to go with it," he told the St. Louis Public radio station.
Sophia recalled when she was 11 years old accompanying his dad to the operation room, where her passion was birthed.
"There are all these different tubes and things coming out of the heart that basically recirculate all the blood in the body while the heart is not beating anymore.
So to see a heart beating, and then stop and then beat again — as an 11-year-old, that's almost like a supernatural experience," she said on the radio station.
After working with her daughter, who looked up to him and hoped one day she would step in his shoes, Harold hopes the experience of working together was just the first of many.
