From Grateful Patients

On Doctors' Day, March 30, members of our social media audience were asked to send notes of thanks to the doctors who have made a difference in their lives or the lives of their loved ones. Here we share a sample of the responses we received.

From: Deb A.

Dr. James Chen and Dr. Ehud Mendel, thank you does not seem sufficient enough to express our gratitude for your continued expertise, professionalism and compassion while treating such a complex case. God bless both of you.

From: Tracy L.

Dr. Mayerson saved my mother’s life, and leg, June 6, 2008. His surgical skill paled only in comparison to the kindness this extremely busy man showed my mom and our family. Dr. Leibner still saves her today! He listens, even though we know his patient list is long and his time is short. There will never be enough thank-yous to repay what they’ve gifted us. She is a survivor, a miracle, and we are blessed every single day. She will celebrate 74 years on April 7!

From: James D.

Dr. William Farrar, his Nurse Practitioner Denise Schimming and his tremendous staff were our salvation at The James when my wife, Janet S. Donnelly, was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2007. His expertise and ability to guide us through many decisions during a difficult time enabled her to successfully go through the surgery and the many chemo and radiation treatments that followed. Because of their efforts she is now 10 years cancer free! Thanks to everyone.

From: Becky P.

Dr. David Cohn is a physician who has great wisdom, skill, and bedside manner. He cares for the patient AND the person and their support people. We have watched him help the Ohio State medical students learn as he examines and evaluates me. He and his team are a true blessing to me and my family. We are so very grateful for him.

From: Jennifer G.

Dr. Mendel ... thank you is not enough. The care and compassion and being straightforward is a blessing. I feel so lucky to be an hour within The James and the wonderful care I AND my caregivers have received. Thank you!
