    Thank you so much for taking such good care of me. You will always be the “best” eye doctor to me (gentle, kind, caring and intelligent). Plus you always will be considered a “special” friend to our family, my dad, as you know him was an admirer of you a woman besides a doctor. Dad always said how gentle you were and intelligent. I am grateful and blessed to have you as my eye doctor. My mom and dad felt the same about you a “special friend” and the “best doctor”. Thank you the bottom of my heart for all you do and all you are. You are loved, respected and admired.


    Just a note to express my appreciation and gratitude for the time spent with you, yesterday. I was feeling pretty low at the time. Hearing you say that the “dry eye” issue, thanks to your home care instructions is doing well made me very glad. In addition to that your caring, warmth, patience and professional wisdom helped me so much. I feel newly inspired to be proactive in my recovery. In time, with support from my primary care doctor and other caring professionals I will be back to my “old self” again. Thank you for taking care of me and my eyes these many years. May all aspects of your personal and professional life give you satisfaction and joy.


    Just a short note to let you know how grateful I am for your expertise in performing my cataract surgery. I was so concerned that there might have been complications due to my glaucoma, but so far there have been none. Your pleasant manner and the wonderful staff at the facility made the experience a little stressful. The concern you have for your patients is obvious.


    Thank you for your kindness, your thoughtfulness and concern. You and your staff are the best. I am so grateful that you have a person answering your calls and not a machine. Thank you, thank you, thank you for that.


    My glasses arrived on Friday and they are perfect! I can see so well now.

    Thank you for finding the solution to my double vision and for making it so easy to receive my new glasses through the mail.
