Thank you for the surgery and kind bedside manner I received from you. To your staff I want to also send my thanks, as it’s so nice to be treated with kindness when going through the steps of surgery. I always felt like I could ask questions and be taken seriously
This is long overdue – but we want to thank you for all the things you have done for our son over the past year and a half. We have spent many hours in doctors’ offices these past years. Your office is very warm and welcoming. Dr. Shadid was great with our son. We just wanted to say thanks.
