Dear Dr. Pierre,

I was told in 2008 that I needed lung surgery. We did not know whether it was cancer or not and the surgery would give the diagnosis. The professional way you treated me gave me a very secure feeling and I felt that no matter what, I was in exceptional hands. As I was being wheeled into the operating room my daughter commented how “calm I was going in for lung surgery.” The result was no cancer and here I am having just turned 70 years young.

You are my Hero!

Sincerely, Judy Hendler
