Today I can walk normally without any conscious thought of what it took…
Dear Dr. Parekh,
More than a year and a half has gone by since my first visit to your office when I was diagnosed with Morton’s Neuroma on my right foot. After a period of time wearing a metatarsal pad to try to alleviate the problem, it was determined that surgery was my best option. You and your team guided me through.
Before I completed the recuperation period from that surgery, I discovered that the same situation was occurring with my left foot. With a surgical bandage on my right foot and a metatarsal pad on my left, you and your team guided me through what would become yet another surgery. Today I can walk normally without any conscious thought of what it took on both our parts to get me to this point. That, in itself, is amazing to me.
With this letter in hand, I will be making my last follow-up trip to your office. I wanted to express my sincere appreciation to both you and everyone on my staff, from your receptionists to your physician’s assistant. All my visits were met with the utmost courtesy, respect, compassion and professionalism that I would wish for everyone who has to deal with a foot ailment.
To you, my physician and surgeon, I want to say thank you for your patience (with my endless questions), your attentiveness (the time you spent listening to me), and your compassion and expertise (to give me two feet that I can walk on painlessly).
I recall my first visit to your office when I pronounced that “feet shouldn’t hurt” and I knew I was correct by the smile on your face. Thank you for making that a reality. Please let your staff know how much I appreciate them. I will actually miss my Wednesday appointments!
