Hi Dr Naderi, Wanted to send a short note of thanks for putting up with the emotional reaction during M’s cast removal week. She benefitted from her visit with you last Friday, as well as the 6 day steroid treatment. Each day we see marked improvements. The swelling continues to subside (just as you told us it would;) ). Still not 100% but she is happier each day with the results. I cannot thank you enough for your professional way of handling “us” during that stressful week. You prepared us in every possible way for a realistic expectation post op. This was new territory for me as a parent, as the other four kids have never asked for anything like this. She is constantly showing me pictures of herself from before (as if I don’t remember what she looked like before) and I truly understand how this was a mental obstacle for her, especially as a performer. Thank you for your patience and expertise. We are appreciative and will sing your praises should anyone need a referral! Have a wonderful holiday weekend.
