"Thank you for your medical help, kindness, and understanding from one of the hundreds of people you see every week. When I first came to see you, I was so scared. I didn't think I would be a whole person again when I was told I needed not just one, but three surgeries before the year was out. You all helped me to laugh and cope with the situation at hand. When I needed to cry you helped me in your very special way. I wish for all of you the blessing of love that you all gave to me."
"Today . . . marks the one year anniversary of the day you did microvascular decompression surgery on me. I thought you'd like to know that I am still pain free. Thank you for using your God-given talent and knowledge to help me!"
"When other physicians were extremely pessimistic about the outcome, you were the one person who shared a sense of optimism and encouraged us through an extremely difficult time."
"Ralph is kind, considerate, and patiently answered all my questions."
"Ralph is the salt of the earth. He reassured me when I worried that my pain was not completely gone the day after surgery. And what he said was absolutely true."
