Dear Dr. Pam,
You have such a talent for medicine and I will always be grateful that I was led to your door. I've lost track of the number of medical practitioners who tried to hep me over the past fifteen years. My case baffled them and I kept deteriorating. Somehow you were able to piece together a distinct image from the disjointed pieces seemingly unrelated symptoms and solve the puzzle of the underlying dysfunction that twas causing me so much pain and disability. People throw the word "holistic" around but, in this case, it truly fits. you are an amazing holistic doctor.
I didn't know when we had out first appointment that you would help me turn my life around. You believed I could regain my health and that belief gave me hope. I've relied upon that faith of yours, and your remarkable intellect, curiosity, and compassion so heavily, especially this past winter, when my health seemed to get worse before it could get better. There were many times when my fear got the better of me, especially when my doctors feared the worst and asked me to do more and more invasive tests. Those days you were both a doctor and a friend to me, encouraging me to trust the body's innate wisdom and ability to heal.
You were right and here I am, firmly on the road to wellness and able to be the wife, mother and person I want to be. I know I can never repay you for leading me on this journey. I cannot even adequately express the depths of my appreciation and respect. Somehow, though, I suspect you can read between the lines and intuitively grasp how I feel. You're good like that. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for working with me. It's been an amazing partnership!
