"We've had World Star, Ellen DeGeneres, Morris Chestnut, Tatiana Ali, a lot of news outlets," Wendy Moses said.

"Dr. Chima," as he's affectionately known, said it's important to above and beyond his basic job duties.

"I always say that medicine with my visits is about 30 seconds or two minutes and then the rest I want to know your GPA, what are your aspirations, what are you doing," Matthew said.
