Dear Dr. Worth and Dr. Mussalli,
We are writing to express our sincere thanks for your expert prenatal care and safe VBAC delivery of our son, Ellis. I’m sure you’ve heard this a million times before, but just to rub it in a bit, your patience is what really made it happen. Thank you for not being typical doctors and for allowing the birth process to happen as naturally as can be under any particular circumstances. Thank you for being more concerned for your patients’ care than time or money. That is so very rare these days.
Dr. Worth, you had something encouraging to say at every point I felt like bailing, giving me a surge of energy and confidence to keep going. I felt like my body was ruined after the C-section with my first son and having this birth vaginally really helped me find closure in that healing process. My recovery was a breeze this time, I feel great, and Ellis and I are enjoying mommy & baby yoga together while my husband is still on parental leave. Stephen’s mother passed away unexpectedly only a week after Ellis was born and had I have had to recover from another C-section, I don’t know how I’d have coped while he was gone.
I knew when the two of you spent 2 hours with us one afternoon / evening the first time we met that your practice was different! I don’t think any doctor has given me that much time in one go, let alone two at once!
I also want to add that we had a really great experience at Lenox Hill. The nursing staff was incredibly friendly and attentive– quite a change from my experience at Roosevelt. Although I never got to experience St. Vincent’s, I was thoroughly pleased to the point of surprise with Lenox Hill.
Thank you for your time, genuine concern, expertise, and healthy delivery of our baby boy. We could not have done it “our way” safely with any other doctor or midwife. We will be back for baby #3.
L & S (and Bryce & Ellis, too!)
P.S. — S has asked me to add to thank you for the awesome coffee in your waiting room. And I’ll add a thank you for the Kit Kats. 🙂
