you have the personal qualities that make you an outstanding physician.
Dear Dr. Jacobs,
How fortunate Hugh and I are to have had you as our primary care physician for the past 23 years. You are indeed a Very Important Person in our lives. The fact that we have aged well is due in large part to your excellent care in the area of preventive medicine as well as treatment.
In addition to being tops in the medical field, you have the personal qualities that make you an outstanding physician. You never rush through an appointment, listen attentively to my concerns, take time to answer all my questions, and make sure I understand your instructions. When there is a need to refer, you do not hesitate to do so. I feel secure under your care as I move into my 90's next year.
