Thank you for the beneficial services you have provided to me. I just arose from a full night’s sleep erect without back pain and walked without favoring any sore muscles. I had no headache and actually feel good about starting my day. I have hoped to reach this state for several years, but did not seriously expect to achieve it.
In December of 1989, after years of what I believed to be migraine headaches, I sought the help of a neurologist. He requested that I cease using caffeine, begin aerobic activity and prescribed two antidepressants. For over three years I followed his and a subsequent neurologist’s advice. The headaches diminished in frequency, but still I arose almost every day with pain in my head, neck and back, pains in my leg.
On January 22nd, I met you, Dr. Doreo, and after a thorough examination and testing, coupled with an insightful interview, you recommended a sixteen-week program of massage and adjustment.
For 8 weeks I faithfully and gratefully came to the office three times a week, grateful for the relief I achieved from the muscular pain, but amazingly the headache diminished almost from the first week. At my first return appointment with the neurologist I communicated my improved condition to him. To my surprise he was very supportive of my Chiropractic treatment. He now is anticipating a total release from chemical treatment.
Don’t for a moment think that I will abandon your care just because I feel better, Dr. Doreo. I respect your sense of concern for my well being evidenced by your inquiries during every visit to the office. I will continue to be in your care as long as I remain in this area and will recommend you to my friends and associates. One of my co-workers has been a patient of yours for a month or so, at my suggestion, and is as delighted with the results as I.
You have never promised miracles, but you delivered them anyway. There is no way for me to pay what your service has been worth to me. And at many times the cost, it would have been a bargain. I can only hope that by sharing my experiences with others I will save them from the dangers of chemical treatments, the lack of resolution of their pain and the chance that they will miss the opportunity to have a diagnosis from someone who can help many. Your care and caring is very much appreciated.
