Pain Treatment | Orthopaedic Specialty Group
One year ago you gave me a new knee. Because of your skill and the help of many others, I am playing tennis and thoroughly enjoying life. This note is to say thank you. p.s. Do you know of anyone who can replace a bad backhand? The tennis pro says it’s genetic.
Thank you for taking such good care of me and my hand! I am healing well (you’ve done your dad proud.)
Many thanks for your quick and very much appreciated efforts on my behalf! It was such a true pleasure to speak to you! Thanks very much for getting my records in so quickly and efficiently.
Thank you for all of your help with my preparation for surgery. Although, to others it may have been a minor procedure, for me it was still unnerving! You helped to alleviate a lot of the stress. Your kindness and patience was greatly appreciated.
I would like to thank you for your professionalism and kindness during my operation. I felt very comfortable with you and your staff during my hospital stay and appreciate it.
This note of thanks is in gratitude of your prompt attention and consideration in securing Dr. Malin to do my mother’s fractured hip. Within 15 minutes you answered my call, sending Dr. Malin back to the hospital to do the late evening surgery. He did a wonderful job and my mom is now in rehab at Lord Chamberlain in . Your kindness is greatly appreciated. Both you and Dr. Malin, and your fine staff do honor to the medical profession. Thank you.
Thank you for the superior surgery you performed on my knee. My uncle visits you on a regular basis, and I thank you for treating him so kindly. I truly do appreciate your good work. Be well.
Just a quick note including a big thank you for a terrific surgery last month. I’m coming along quite well. I sincerely appreciate all you’ve done to get me back on the road to full recovery. Thanks again. I’m sure I’ll be as good as new soon. p.s. The entire staff as OSG has been terrific, also.
I want to thank you for the wonderful care you showed me. You are very kind, compassionate, and understanding. I always felt very confident in you although the surgery was unsettling to anticipate. Words cannot express the gratitude that I feel for the fee you charged me. It only proved to me that you are a caring doctor and I will always be grateful. I’m looking forward to being normal again and getting my life back. God bless you.
