While based in Washington, "Doc Steinbeck" was responsible for visiting the detainees held at the US detention facility at Guantanamo Bay and monitoring their health. During their StoryCorps conversation, Mark told Anna about some of the most memorable patients he had helped while working as a surgeon for the ICRC in the field.
