After hand surgery: "I am writing this letter of gratitude and praise for the excellent skills and knowledge that you displayed in performing surgery on my hand. The squamous cell carcinoma that was on the left hand has healed beautifully. I wasn't concerned about the healing process as much as I was about the results. The results are a perfect ten!! It has not been, but a scant eight weeks, and the scar is barely visible!! You did a wonderful job, and I couldn't be more pleased! I was most fortunate to have had a surgeon of your caliber. I want to say 'thank you', and I did not have to go to Charleston, Duke, or Mayo!! Spartanburg is very blessed and so am I."
