Dear Dr. Riina,
I am healing well from my burn in 2012 because of the support of my family, friends, colleagues, martial arts, my faith/spirituality and especially with all that YOU and your team have done for me. My family and I are not ready to go thru the pre-and post-surgery in the public eye. I am healing well because my scars are not recognizable; I can lead a normal life without anyone asking and seeing my scars and/or injuries. I am grateful to GOD that my injuries were contained in my body, where it is not obvious.
I have a lot of respect and appreciation for what you do for me and your patients. We (your patients and their families) are grateful to you for making our challenging experience easy with your smile, care, compassion, thoughtfulness and your constant search for better treatment options.
I will never forget when I was feeling my dignity compromised and you said, “I will treat you like my sister,” and when you went to Seattle for your conference, you called me every day to see how I was and said, “I will fly back if you need me.”
Take care and thanks again.
