May we continue many more years of partnership, since I know you have my best health at heart
It hardly seems possible that nearly 20 years have gone by since you were recommended to me and I came to see you for an initial office visit to investigate an extra heart beat. With my family's heart health history, I was concerned. You alleviated my fears after testing and have monitored the situation, sending me to a specialist in recent years when it required further study. The same goes for my concern over the rare blood disorder which was responsible for one sibling's stroke and possibly another's early death. You prescribed a blood workup and even went to bat for me when my insurance company did not want to cover the cost of the specialized test. Thankfully, I do not carry that antibody. You find answers when I ask questions.
You are interested in me, not just as a patient, but as a person. You have always placed great importance on preventative medicine. Perhaps that is one reason why I have been fortunate to enjoy good health under your watch, although my blood pressure always jumps when I come for a visit!!
Thank you for your advice, compassion, caring, and your medical knowledge and skill. May we continue many more years of partnership, since I know you have my best health at heart.
