I wanted to express my appreciation for the outstanding and professional medical care from you over the past several weeks. I may have asked more questions then the average patient but always knew my medical care was in the right hands---yours. It was my firm knowledge from the first visit. Your cheerfulness and direct candor in how to treat the illness I will always remember. One helps the patient emotionally, the other physically; both necessary. Having never been really ill before in my life, I needed both. Thanks for being my doctor and god bless.
