I am writing to say thank you for the good care you took of me. My bulging disc and associated sciatic pain caused the most difficult time in my life. For the first time, enjoying day-to-day activities was not so simple. The pain became a constant part of my life that I could rarely escape. It was discouraging not to be able to do the things I had done without a thought in the past. I have always loved the outdoors because it’s where I feel most free. Not being able to run, climb, and hike make it feel as though I has lost a part of me that made me who I am.
I can't really thank you enough for seeing me and keeping me walking. This herniated disc turned into a very difficult and painful problem, I was so frightened by the pain - I had no idea it could be that bad and don't want to imagine what it might have been like had you not helped me.
I am writing this letter to express my sincere, and deepest gratitude for treating my illness, and enabling me to move around. When I first came to your office I was in severe pain, unable to walk, or even stand straight. You took time to listen to my concerns, and asked what my goal was. Because of your expertise, you were able to understand the symptoms, and the root cause of my pain.
I can’t thank you enough for curing Don’s excruciating back pain. He has been miserable for quite a while now and thanks to you, he is free from that awful pain. He is only taking Tylenol now and it does the trick. He doesn’t feel that he has to have anything stronger than that.
We wish all doctors were as nice and explained things as well.
