I just wanted to take the time to send you a note of thanks for the perfect surgery

“Dear Dr. Kulik,

I just wanted to take the time to send you a note of thanks for the perfect surgery you performed on my friend’s ankle and foot a few years back.

Over the past few years I have been thinking about all my visits to see you with my friend, and they were all very positive and helpful visits. You have a very calming way of dealing with older folks and you were especially kind and caring for my friend. I loved the way you compared her to your own mother.

I know how busy doctors are in today’s world, and I know your waiting room has always been full when I would bring my friend to see you. It is not often in life that good things happen, and that you meet good people who make an effort to go beyond their normal requirements of service to care for others. You did just that on every visit.

I also want to especially thank your staff who were always most pleasant and concerned and helpful in helping me to set up meetings at your office, especially knowing we had to drive from Garrett County, Maryland, 185 miles each time we visited.

My friend is now 74 years old, and she is getting around extremely well, and I know if it had not been for your surgery and care, she would not be walking today!

Now her life is much more enjoyable and comfortable because of the concern and compassion you went out of your way to show to her. That means a lot to someone who knows that without quality help she would never walk again.

When I think of you and your staff I think of: empathy, compassion, concern, consideration, understanding, kindness, support, reinforcement, repair & maintenance, strength, empowerment, comfort, involvement and true quality medical care.

There is no way I can really thank you Dr. Kulik for all you have done for my friend and her family - who all know about you and your work.

We toast you and your work and wish you a good long happy life!”
