Dear Dr. Palchak,

I wanted you to know how much my wife and I appreciate the treatment I received from Dr. Hjortsvang for B cell lymphoma of the prostate.  Dr. Hjortsvang who has an impeccable bedside manner with his sympathetic understanding and explanation of the chemo and radiation treatment I would receive imbued us with optimism and confidence that I was getting the best treatment.   Many thanks to Dr. Hjortsvang for his knowledge and people skills---and definitely his patience with all the questions I asked.  I wanted you to know Dr. Hjortsvang did us proud!


Dear Dr. Hjortsvang,

I'm enclosing a copy of the letter we sent to Dr. Palchak expressing our appreciation for your ability to deal with my health problem.  Both my wife and I feel you were very understanding and sympathetic in explaining the necessary treatment.  On top of that I greatly appreciate your patience in answering my numerous questions.



Dr. Palchak,

Having returned from my appointment with you, hearing the news I am "CURED" is the best feeling I could ever have.  I am not suppose to be here today having stage 3B gallbladder cancer diagnosed in July 2013. Statistics show my chances of survival at 2%.  How could I have known I would be one of the very few who made it.  Thanks to each member of my team. Dr. Palchak you played a very important part of my survival.  I can't thank you enough for giving me back my life.  I hope I can share with others who face dire odds that miracles do happen.  From the bottom of my heart, thank you!
