Dear Dr. Kofinas,
Words alone cannot express how grateful and lucky we feel to have met you. We truly know that if it was not for you and your amazing expertise out little angle may not have made it. When we came to you, our confidence of having a successful pregnancy was very low given out history, but every time I spoke with you either via phone or in the office you always gave us hope. You extended yourself beyond any doctor I have ever met. I remember in the beginning when I was bleeding you told me to call you every day. I mainly remember saying but Thanksgiving is in a couple of days and you without hesitation repeated yourself - call me everyday. Sure enough we spoke Thanksgiving Day. Boy did I have a lot to be thankful for. In addition to your outstanding medical care you also knew how to take care of my emotional needs. You never once rushed me and I always felt like all of my questions/concerns were addressed. That meant so much to me. I looked forward to my appointments with you because you always "held my hand" and helped me just get through week after week. You took care of my baby and me and I always felt so secure and knew the two of us were in the best hands. I think you are an amazing doctor but also an amazing person. It is so clear how dedicated you are to your patients. You have a unique bedside manner and your presence alone gave me a sense of security and calmness. Needless to say I was very anxious throughout the pregnancy but you never once discarded that.
What I guess I am trying to say is thank you for taking care of me during such a stressful but exciting time. I would not have gotten through it emotionally without your help and of course physically. I will be forever grateful and you will always hold a special place in my heart and in our family.
With much love and admiration,
Al & Cathy Botta...
