From one of our patients
To the Nurses:
Thank you for always smiling and answering all our questions.
Thank you for taking out my IV as soon as you could so that I would be more comfortable.
Thank you for making us laugh despite the situation.
Thank you for caring about us and for wanting us to succeed.
Thank you for letting me use the washroom
as many times as I wanted to as long as I kept drinking water.
Thank you for making a difficult situation so much easier.
It was less painful to come to the appointment because of how much you cared.
To the Receptionists:
Thanks so much you were more than kind. People like you aren’t easy to find!
Thank you for always smiling at us when we walked in and for saying “hello” when we passed by.
Thank you for keeping us in the loop by letting us know how long Dr. Daya would be.
Thank you for always making us feel “at home” rather than like we were in a doctor’s office.

To everyone at check-in:
Thank you so much for always being so friendly to us.
Thank you for smiling when you greeted us and for always remembering our name.
Thank you for squeezing us in when you could
and for giving us true estimates so we could sneak back out to the car.
To everyone in bloodwork:
Thank you so much for being quick with the needles and for not minding when I looked away.
Thank you for talking to me to take my mind off what was happening
and for always caring enough to ask how things were going.
To all the ultrasound technicians:
Thank you for your patience when I asked one hundred questions
and for always answering with a smile on your face.
Thank you for making us comfortable and for all your reassurance throughout the process.
Thank you all for making a difficult situation so much easier.
