Dear Dr. Burke,

The reason for this letter is just to thank you for how generous you are in the care that you offer to your patients. I have been seeing you for as long as I can remember, and I know that I have always felt comfortable coming to see you. Thank you for your patience, your ability to listen and respond kindly to any concerns, and best of all your warmth and genuine concern for me. Sometimes you may be running behind, or a little off schedule, but it never shows. I know you will spend the right amount of time needed to get a thorough and complete diagnosis of my concurs or condition.

Thanks for caring. Thanks for being a great doctor. I wish you could do the type of surgery I am interested in. I would do it in a heartbeat even if I would have to pay out of pocket! Thanks for who you are and what you do. Many other doctors could learn a great deal from you.

Sincerely, Sheila
