After everything I’ve been through, Dr. Lekkas brought back what cancer took away. Because of him, I feel whole again.
Dr. Yen, you are a special person, and I want to “thank you” for your wonderful care and concern for me especially when things didn’t go as we planned. I did finally get a hug and I’ll see you in September.
Dr. Schurman and Carol - Just a note to say thank you once again. This will definitely be the only time I say this in a Christmas card, but I really love my breast – so thank you!
Thank you for the extreme care and compassion with my surgery. Words can’t describe how this has changed my life! Again you and your staff are Angels.
Thank you for changing my life!
We can’t thank you enough for taking such good care of Karina! We truly appreciate everything you’ve done for her. Thank you for driving to the hospital during the ice storm to stitch her face. Thanks again!
Dr. Reese - On March 28, 2008 we are remembering that I was struck by lightning 20 years ago. We want to again thank you for what you did for me then and in the 20 years since that. I have a good life and am satisfied with how I am doing. Thank you!
Dr. Yen - Thank you so much for your care and excellent skills. I felt very fortunate to have a personal recommendation from my sister and understand how she enjoyed her work experience with you. You have given me a better quality of life.
I want to thank you for everything you did for me. I really appreciated your concern, thoroughness and patience through my healing process. I always felt you were looking out for my best interest in my recovery. Thank you again for everything.
My “dear” Dr. Yen - I can’t begin to put into words what a horrific time we had! And there is no one else I could have shared it with. You have proven to me that quality medical care can still exist and a wonderful bedside manner can make a patient feel welcome, warm and trusting.
