Mary's Story: "Their Impact Reaches Beyond the Exam Room"

We were deeply touched to receive this kind let­ter from Mary express­ing her grat­i­tude for the care she received at our practice. 

Her jour­ney and pos­i­tive out­come rein­force the crit­i­cal impor­tance of ear­ly skin can­cer screen­ing, par­tic­u­lar­ly for melanoma. 

Thank you, Mary, for shar­ing your sto­ry and trust­ing us with your care. Your appre­ci­a­tion means the world to us! 

To Whom It May Concern,

I am writ­ing to express my deep­est appre­ci­a­tion for the excep­tion­al care and sup­port I have received from Dr. Todd Rozy­c­ki, Nurse Prac­tion­er April Ras­nic and the entire team at the Day Road der­ma­tol­ogy office over the last sev­er­al years.

Hav­ing faced mul­ti­ple melanomas, skin can­cers, and abnor­mal moles, the jour­ney has been chal­leng­ing, but their dili­gence, exper­tise, and com­mit­ment to my well-being have tru­ly been life­sav­ing. The keen atten­tion to detail, thor­ough exam­i­na­tions, and prompt actions in diag­nos­ing and treat­ing my con­di­tions have instilled a sense of con­fi­dence and trust that is invalu­able to me and my chil­dren who are also reg­u­lar patients.

I would also like to extend my grat­i­tude to the physi­cian assis­tants who have played a cru­cial role in my care. Their ded­i­ca­tion, pro­fes­sion­al­ism, and com­pas­sion­ate approach have con­tributed sig­nif­i­cant­ly to my pos­i­tive expe­ri­ence dur­ing each vis­it. Beyond the med­ical exper­tise, I want to acknowl­edge the won­der­ful office staff. Their friend­ly demeanor, effi­cien­cy, and will­ing­ness to go the extra mile have cre­at­ed a wel­com­ing and sup­port­ive envi­ron­ment. From sched­ul­ing appoint­ments to address­ing inquiries, their con­tri­bu­tions have not gone unno­ticed. (spe­cial shoutout to Tammy!)

In times when health­care can be daunt­ing, the Day Road der­ma­tol­ogy team has con­sis­tent­ly demon­strat­ed a lev­el of care and com­mit­ment that goes above and beyond expec­ta­tions. The impact of their work reach­es far beyond the exam­i­na­tion room, pos­i­tive­ly influ­enc­ing the lives of their patients.

To Dr. Rozy­c­ki direct­ly I say, thank you Dr. Rozy­c­ki for mak­ing a dif­fer­ence in my life and the lives of my chil­dren. Your ded­i­ca­tion to the field of der­ma­tol­ogy and your gen­uine con­cern for the well-being of your patients are tru­ly com­mend­able. Wish­ing you con­tin­ued suc­cess and ful­fill­ment in your vital work.

With sin­cere appreciation,

Mrs. Mary D.
