Dear Dr. Andriana, I just wanted to say thank you and express how grateful I am for having you as my doctor:) I couldn’t imagine a better person and a more knowledgable doctor to help me on my healing path. The approach you have is so beyond functional, it is truly holistic, and that is the only way one can truly heal. When I started my journey I knew it was so important to choose the right doctor who will understand all my struggles, and who will empathize and really care, and you do. I’ve never felt before that a doctor really truly cared about my healing until I met you and now that I know how it feels, I think it might be one of the most important things that a doctor can give to their patient. I remember when I first came to your office and I was very stressed, as I was running late, within the first minute of talking to you I was calm and knew I made the right choice. I now also see, how you were able to meet me where I was every time, you never pushed me or tried to convince me of anything, until I was ready to understand and make the right decisions for my health. We are not ready until we are, and that is something very few people understand, and to have a doctor who does is a privilege. You made me feel safe from the moment I met you. I was diagnosed with Hashimoto a few years ago and few doctors told me that I will have to take the hormones for the rest of my life, probably increasing my dose from time to time, it is a very debilitating diagnosis to receive, and I believe that the doctors should empower people to take responsibility of their own health instead of giving them a life sentence of sickness. You’ve empowered me Dr. Andriana, and not only that, you have brought me closer to my true purpose, which is helping people to heal. I still don’t know how I will do that, but watching you is so inspiring and I know that I will find my path:) And of course, I no longer take thyroid hormones:) Thank you for being my friend.
And Mark, thank you so much for always responding promptly to my never-ending emails and questions:) You are always so kind and understanding, you and Dr. Andriana are a power team.
