Dear Dr. La Via,

When I see your name I want to shout Viva, Viva. When I see your sparkling face I just thank God for leading me to you as my skilled, sunshine, makes house calls surgeon.

Thank you for doing such a fine job. If I can look at it, it must be healing well. You have excellent “bedside manner” — one feels confident and at peace in your hands.

God Bless you and your family.
