Our referring physician said we would want an experiences plastic surgeon to complete the stitches. We were so blessed that you were on call that day. Your expertise, skill and calming disposition were just what we needed.We want to share with you the amazing healing Jack has experienced in one year's time. His scar is barely noticeable and his face as adorable as ever!Thank you for the amazing results you created for Jack, and all of the patients under his care. We are so grateful!Our best,Amy and John
