Thanks again, from the bottom of our hearts, for making this a special year for us. Sasha is an amazing baby — we are so very blessed. We hope we won’t need to see you again, but if we do, I’m sure you’ll make another miracle happen. We are forever grateful to you.

Much Love, Robyn, Mike and Sasha G.

 

To the fabulous ladies at Dr. Simon’s office and, of course, Dr. Simon, Thank you, thank you, thank you! We couldn’t be more grateful for helping us get our baby girl — we’re so in love with her.

Dear Carol,

I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for everything you’ve done for me — you’ve really gone above and beyond. You are a great example of what healthcare should be.

Thanks again, Diana M.

 

Dear Carol,

Thanks for all of your help and for being the kind of healthcare provider that is rare these days — one who really cares.

Dear Lucy Treene,

I’m not sure if you will remember me or not, so I am enclosing a picture. I work in a dental office and realize how difficult it can be to remember every patient that you have seen.

Anyway, the reason I am writing is to thank you for the excellent care that you gave me on that one and only visit to your office. I was amazed at the amount of time that you spent with me, how you listened and genuinely seemed to care about all that I have been through in the past year. You even did a sonogram for me, without charging me for it, so you could get a better idea of what was going on with me. Then you called in Dr. Simon, whom I didn’t have an appointment with, and he spent time examining me also, at no extra charge. The two of you together told me that I would need a surgical approach to my problem and then proceeded to make a phone call to get me in to see someone as soon as possible. When I left there I had an appointment two days later to see Dr. Andrew Sokol at the National Center for Advanced Pelvic Surgeries.

I wasn’t happy with the answers I got that day as I had already had this surgery in January of 2010 to fix the problem and the thought of going through it all over was very upsetting.

I did have the surgery on Dec. 4th and I am at home recuperating now. It went very well. Now that it is over I am in a better frame of mind and I know that as soon as I am able, I will be back to my active and healthy self. I am so thankful that I was directed to your office and that you guided me in the right direction, to Dr. Sokol. He is a wonderful surgeon. He is very optimistic about the outcome of my surgery and I’m excited about that.

I am 52 years old and I have been to many doctors through the years, and most are good doctors who seem to care. I can honestly say though, that you and Dr. Simon are more caring and compassionate than any doctors I’ve ever been too. You have, for decades, gone above and beyond what you needed to do as a physician for me and I am eternally grateful to you. I will be forever grateful to you for the excellent care that you treated me with. I hope that you enjoy this holiday season and that you have a blessed and abundant new year in 2011.

Sincerely, Karen S.

 

Dear Dr. Simon,

First and foremost I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your endless help and support. You have, for decades, gone above and beyond what you needed to do as a physician for me, and I am eternally grateful to you. Since you know me so well, it probably won’t be any surprise to you that your support and always being there for me gives me a huge sense of security.

Soon, I am going to send out an email to all my dear friends who are crazy because of menopause and suggest they come see you…..OH, aren’t you lucky…I don’t know how you deal with hormonally “challenged” women….you are a SAINT!…..what a profession you selected for yourself.

You are one VERY special human being!

All the best to you and your family. Anne K.

 

Dear Dr. Simon,

I wanted to thank you for meeting with me … to discuss my options on HRT. You asked me not to make a decision until after the New Year, that was great advice! I left with 4 options for treatment which I needed to think about and research. My 1st option was to do nothing, which is my decision! For years I have been searching for the magic answer to fix my broken puzzle. In my case that was the problem. It truly never occurred to me to do nothing or that it was even a choice.

I also wanted to thank you … for being a physician who allowed me to be a part of my own recovery by listening to and guiding me during my appointment. I am now able to step back and look at all the pieces in a different way…

So again, thank you for your kindness, for taking the time, for your ability to use an alternative approach and for guiding me with your insight!

Jennifer R.

 

Dr. Simon,

Thank you for being such a wonderful help to me medically while I was in DC… I will be returning to DC … and would like to be your patient once again. You are the most knowledgeable and caring doctor I have ever had!

All the best in 2010 to you, your family and staff.

Dr. Lucy Treene

Dr. Lucy Treene is the only Doctor out of 8 that I have seen to actually care about what was wrong, and the first and only to find a solution! So thankful for her! She is a kind, thorough, caring, professional, thoughtful, and knowledgeable! Would highly recommend her to any, and everyone!

Dr. Lucy Treene

Lucy Treene was professional, friendly, and very knowledgable. After many years and six doctors, she is the only one who was able to make a diagnosis. I highly recommend her!

In the seven years I have been going to this practice to see Lucy Treene I have never experienced anything but the utmost kindness, professionalism, promptness, good humor and empathy from everyone from the front desk to the professional seen. I have utmost confidence in them and would recommend them to anyone who is in need of their service.

After multiple appointments with PCPS and OBGYNS, it was a relief to finally get a diagnosis from Lucy. She was professional in describing the condition (VVS) but still had excellent bedside manner.

Lucy Treene is an excellent diagnostician and quickly assessed and provided treatment for my condition. I will have re-checks periodically and feel that I am in the right place/practice. Thank you very much! Ann Webb Stretch

Lucy Treene is absolutely fantastic. I couldn’t speak more highly of the quality of care and concern I’ve been shown. thanks so much

ANN VAUGHAN

 

Exactly what I needed! I am so glad I listened to my friend and sought a second opinion from Lucy Treene. Couldn’t be happier.

Lucy Treene is absolutely wonderful. She pays attention to detail and follows up frequently to see that all is going as planned. Would recommend this practice to family/friends.

Lucy is always kind and courteous. It was an emergency visit to get some help before I went on a trip overseas. She was fabulous, as usual.
