A little boy in Washington is proving that imitation is not only the sincerest form of flattery, but gratitude as well.

Landon Brown wanted to thank the surgeon who performed his two cochlear implants, so the 7-year-old decided to dress up like him.

"He worked on both of my ears, and he's a great surgeon," he said.

Dr. Jay Rubenstein performed Landon's first surgery when the boy was just 9-months-old. Last summer he added a cochlear implant to Landon's left ear.

The 7-year-old has become an important part of the doctor's effort to help implant patients to better hear music.

Not a bad patient to choose, considering Landon's dad is a musician.
