Dear Dr. Riachi,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your help. I want you to know that you did not simply change my life; you gave me my life back.

I have suffered with urinary incontinence for over 2 1/2 years. It was a very long time and the most terrible time of my life, humiliating, to the point that I have not worked in over a year because I was too embarrassed to go out and work, fearing that I would wind up having the problem at work and being further embarrassed.

When I did work the year before last, I would be at work and have accidents and ruin property at work, worse, everyone knew about it and people would say things about me behind my back and I would not want to go back the next day (but I had to).

You are a superior person, professional, you have an incredible personality, you're humorous, empathetic, and what is most and more outstanding about you is that you truly do care about your patients and you take the time to listen and hear them and this is something that most physicians in this day and age (often) forget to do.

Even though at this time in my life I have horrendous insurance and I am not working as yet, you treated me with dignity and just as you would any other patient, and that alone simply makes you a genuine, wonderful doctor and human being.

You told me exactly how and what would transpire regarding my surgery and recovery, not once did that information change in any way. My surgery and recovery are going exactly how you said they would and that is a great surprise to me, and I am thankful.

I have been in hospitals that I almost did not make it out of twice. In both cases, I was brought as close to death as anyone could be without dying, human error, mechanical error, etc. My greatest fear was that I would not make it through this surgery and I would leave my two little guys all alone in life, without a mommy. I had been to many consultations with other surgeons, and I chose you because I have read that you're the best surgeon, and I knew after I met you that you would take care of me. I felt enormous trust for you the moment I met you, since you have something about you that exudes trust and great confidence.

I will remain ever grateful to you for giving me back my life. No one can imagine what it is like to live without quality of life. It has been a long and sad road. I am now ready to begin again and I have much hope for my future. More importantly, you took great care with me and sent me home to my little ones and, for that, I will always remember you, remain grateful to you, and hold you in the highest esteem and regard, forever.

Thank you, Dr. Riachi, from my children and myself from our hearts.

It was a pleasure to have met you and been your patient. You will go down in my mental history book as my savior! In addition, you have my family's gratitude as well.

Best regards,

Dear Dr. Riachi,

Words can't really fully express how grateful I am for all of your help. I am touched by your care and generosity. I apologize for being so stubborn and difficult at times, but the fact that you listened to me, and to my concerns, really showed me what an incredible person you are.

I can't thank you enough for doing my surgery, and for doing it better than I ever could have imagined. You turned what could have been an awful experience into an enriching one. As it taught me not only a lot about myself, but also a lot about the goodness of the human heart, which you showed me through your friendship.

I will never fully be able to repay you for what you have given me, but I pray you know just how much your kindness has touched me. I feel very blessed to know you. You have made a difference in my life and in the lives of many others. You should be very proud of yourself. You are truly a wonderful person.

Mille Mercis...

Love,

Dr. Riachi,

Although I haven't returned to you for regular gynecological visits, I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate how wonderful and professional a doctor you are. After being diagnosed with pre-cervical cancer by another doctor prior to seeing you, I was left in limbo with no explanation of my conditions or of how I had developed it. I was extremely happy how quickly you got me taken care of and the fact that now I feel back to my normal self. You educated me and made me feel extremely comfortable. I felt very self-conscious about what was occurring to my body prior to the coning.

I thank you, because I am extremely happy now and (I'll) never forget what you have done for me. No more abnormal pap smears for me. You are always remembered by me and I always speak very highly of you because of the compassion you showed me during my procedure. I've made sure to recommend friends and family to you. While I went in for surgery alone I felt very comfortable because I knew I was under excellent care. You have changed my life forever.

I THANK YOU!

Sincerely, 


S.G.

You have given me every reason to feel confidence in your knowledge and skill as a physician. I would recommend you as a doctor and the TVT procedure to all women. I just want to say THANK YOU for giving me my life back and improving my overall quality of every day. I know it has only been a few weeks since my procedure, but it was extremely successful! I applaud you as a physician and wish all doctors were as sincere and thorough as you are. It is extremely difficult to find a doctor who actually cares and follows through with the healing process and the overall wellness of their patients. 

Again, I just want to say Thank You!

Sincerely,

M.

Hi Dr. Riachi,

I just wanted to write you a quick note to thank you for EVERYTHING!!! You have been really great with me over the last month and I appreciate it.

I know this does not have to be said but I am going to say it anyway. It was not easy to come to you for this surgery. I came to you because you are an amazing surgeon and (most importantly) because you were the only one who said they would try to save my fertility.
