Words cannot express the gratitude I feel for your skill as a physician, but more than that your caring and compassion as a person. Your skill allows you to "fix" the outside of your patients, but your inner qualities make you a great human being and the person you are. Thank you so much for the wonderful care you gave me. I feel blessed that our paths crossed. Please extend my appreciation to your staff. They, like yourself, always had a kind and caring way that made me feel safe. I will remember you with kind thoughts and you'll be in my prayers. With much appreciation and gratitude.View More
