Dear, Dr. Weissberg,


I wanted to take the opportunity to thank you for the surgeries and postsurgical care provided by you and your staff in 2015 and 2016.


Originally, I had surgery in 2015 and rushed back to work after only three weeks which proved to be a big mistake. My knee did heal and in about six months I finally felt great. In May of 2016 I made the decision that jumping on a trampoline with my granddaughter was a good idea. Clearly it was not. Again, I needed surgery but this time I decided to use better judgement moving forward. I rehabbed for eight weeks and have since used a lot more discretion and better judgement with the activities that I pursue. I’ve remained active and have almost no limitations. Yesterday I went for a bike ride today I used the elliptical machine. At times I’m up and down ladders and in and out of cargo vans. All of this most importantly is pain free.


I realize that I’m a candidate or should I say will eventually need a knee replacement in the future, but my goal is to avoid this.


I just wanted to take the time to tell you ho please I am with the quality of life the last several years and to extend my thanks to Susan and the rest of your staff at that time for there professionalism, care and compassion. Wishing you and your staff the best.

P.S. The only reason I’ve been reluctant to write this letter is I’m somewhat superstitious and didn’t want to jinx myself  (only kidding).
