Dear Dr. Tinger,
Thank you for all that you and your staff did for me during my recent bout with prostate cancer.
From our first visit when you explained my options, I felt that I was working with a compassionate and knowledgeable physician. It took me a while to decide which course to take, but I'm sure I made the right choice. I had no real side effects, and aside from waiting for my blood count to come back to give me a little more stamina, I feel great. And you'll be pleased to know that when Dr. Riechers took my PSA ten days ago, it was 0. While I believe it may be a little soon after the radiation to get an accurate reading, it made me feel very positive.
And let me congratulate you on the excellent staff you have. Every one that I came in contact with at the Cancer and Wellness Center made me feel welcome and showed a positive attitude toward me and my prognosis. Barbara, Louise, Matt, Mary, Nichole, Kara, Kay, Eleanor...all created an atmosphere to reassure me and make me feel a part of the family.
So thank you again for making what could have been a frightening and uncomfortable experience a very positive one.
I look forward to seeing you again in the new year for whatever check-ups are necessary.
