“…Buenos Dias Dr. Max, It has been 9 months since you performed surgery on my right shoulder for supraspinatus tendon tear and removal of spur. I am very happy to tell you what a difference the surgery made to my lifestyle. Since the surgery I have been able to sleep through the night. This was a big bonus as I lacked sleep for many years prior to seeing you. Also I am able to do many house chores and have started using weights to build my muscles. In addition, I have been walking without pain ever since you injected the cocktail into my ichmus tendon. I am also using weights to increase strength and muscle tone to my legs. I can only speak of you in the highest regard for helping me get my life back. You are very dear to my heart and I am very grateful for all you have done for me. Hopefully we will meet again soon. Big hugs to you,…” N.K.
