“Someday, when you’re out hiking in some beautiful place, please think of one of your patients – and her family – that you helped to be able to get back out there too. Every patient you have in your career is going to be a lucky patient. You’ll always be my hero.” – D.M.
“Thank you, far too late, for the gratitude I feel toward all you did for me. You listened – heard and took the necessary steps to guide me on to the next step of healing.
