Dear Dr. Cole & Staff:

I wanted to extend a heartfelt thank you for your fantastic care of my son. From beginning to end, (i.e. appointments, personal follow-ups via telephone, preoperative expectations, surgery, and aftercare) you and you staff made it a seamless and pleasant process, despite the injury. Your quality and integrity as a surgeon and, more fundamentally, as a person, made the entire ordeal satisfying.

You have a special gift as a surgeon and as a person. Thank you for giving my son his life back BASKETBALL!!! Despite the odds and negative probability of recovering from an ACL & Meniscus tear, you made it possible for him to play his last year of high school and even secure multiple scholarship offers.

We cannot thank you enough for the excellent care you provided. I am beyond grateful for each of you.

(Screaming from the stands) >>>> THANK YOU.THANK YOU.THANK YOU!!!!!!
