  Mr. HARDER of California. Madam Speaker, Dr. Bishop dedicated the 
past fourteen years to serving those who served our country. As a Lead 
Physician at the Modesto VA, he served more than a thousand veterans in 
the Modesto area, delivering world-class care and helping fulfill our 
nation's promise to support everyone who serves.
   Dr. Bishop went above and beyond the job description of a physician, 
bringing hope to his patients and building trust in the VA system. 
According to one of his patients, ``Dr. Bishop is one of those 
incredible providers who can bring an incredibly disgruntled patient 
into his exam room who is upset at the VA and the world, and two 
minutes later have the same person laughing and with a better outlook 
on life.'' His lifetime of dedication made an enormous impact on his 
patients and his community, and there are many in the Modesto community 
whose lives would not be the same without him.
   Even as he caps off his career, he will still be serving Modesto 
veterans as a home-based primary care physician. I commend his 
commitment to Central Valley veterans, and I wish him a happy
