Dear Dr. Bernstein,
I do want you to know how impressed I am with you both as a doctor and as a person. I am certain you are very knowledgeable in your field. This is, in part, reflected in your ability to explain the situation so clearly.
Then, too, it is so heart-warming in this materialistic period to find someone as honest as you are. I don’t know if I mentioned it to you, but my father was a surgeon. Like you, I know he never performed an operation if it was not clearly in the patient’s best interest.
Thank you so very much for conducting your practice on this high level and for taking the trouble to write me a detailed, explanatory letter. You truly are a special person and a credit to your profession.
