“While we sing your praises all over town, we felt the most important person to sing to was you. We can’t tell you how exceptional it was to have a doctor spend the time (as though he had plenty) with us to explain what was causing John’s pain and the options he had to attempt to relieve it. Your patience in answering all and any questions is uncommon in our experiences with medical practice since returning from overseas. Thank you sincerely for using your gifts to help others. We sincerely appreciate your skills and caring. Dr. Saiz, we’ll be thanking you for a long time.”
