I am writing you this letter to express my gratitude for the awesome repair surgery on my left arm, distal bicep tendon. I knew once I met you for my first visit that you were very smart, I knew I was in good hands surgery wise. I feel I was very lucky to have you as my surgeon. I would recommend you as a doctor to everyone I know that would need your field of expertise and surgery. Every day I think how lucky I am that I still have a normal functioning left arm. I don’t want you to think I take for granted the outstanding work you did on my arm. Besides intelligence a good surgeon has to be artistic and at times innovative. I told my wife that I feel you are probably able to invent things to do with muscle and bone repair. To sum up the whole point of writing this letter, lam very pleased to have been your and continue to be your patient.
Dr. Dyal – I can’t thank you enough for doing such a great job on my ankle! You are a wonderful doctor and I am grateful for all you have done for me. Thank you!!!
I cannot thank you enough. My recovery again is a testament to your skills as a surgeon. You are also one of the nicest ladies I have had the privilege of meeting. I will never forget the time you took the time to listen to me when my sister died of cancer. God bless you and your family.
