Good evening Dr. Wittig,
I hope you are doing well this evening and hope you have a restful weekend with your family. It was a pleasure meeting you in person. After meeting you, I can understand why you and Sheeraz are close friends and colleagues, especially how highly Sheeraz spoke of you! You are kind and down to earth. Also, you and Sheeraz are not only amazing and talented doctors, but you are compassionate and empathetic to the needs of your patients and families, which often lacks in the world of medicine. I wanted to be a doctor, but I really can't deal with the sight of blood, like I mentioned to Sheeraz. Both of you are great role models how family centered care should be and how I strive and want to be with my little patients at Sloan.
I appreciate everything you have done for my Uncle. I am grateful to Sheeraz for recommending you! I hope you and your family are always happy and healthy, so you can continue to great things to impact the quality of life of others.
Thanks so much again for everything NYU familia!
