Dr. Trevor Steve

A light during a difficult time

The first thing Jude said about Dr. Trevor Steve is that he has a wicked sense of humour. Well, people say laughter is the best medicine. In Jude’s case, she also needed Dr. Steve’s expertise as a neurologist, and she credits him with saving her life.

Dr. Steve is an assistant professor in the Department of Medicine, Division of Neurology at the U of A. Jude first met Dr. Steve three years ago when she was admitted to the ICU following a seizure she had in her home. He diagnosed her epilepsy and has been providing her follow-up care since.

“Dr. Steve is warm, kind, attentive and knowledgeable. He looks you straight in the eye and listens to you. I owe him everything,” says Jude.

As if the epilepsy was not enough to handle, Jude then lost her husband of 54 years. She credits Dr. Steve and his team for helping her deal with that loss on top of her health issues. “He was very sympathetic during a rough time in my life, and he has greatly improved my quality of life by helping me manage my epilepsy. Dr. Steve is Shine A Light.”
