You and your staff provide the best care. You’re at the top of the game and always made my family and I feel safe and at ease in every way. I would not be here today without you. I will always be thankful for my physicians.

Dear Dr. Anil George,
You first met me in 20210 at Crouse Hospital when I was brought there. I had surgery for triple bypass and you have been with me since. Back then I called you my TV doctor. Thank you so much for caring for me.

Dear Drs. Melissa Nelson, Eileen Bifano, Steve Gross, Bonnie Marr, Beverly Roy and Susanna Arriagada,
We cannot thank you enough for the exceptional level of care you all provided to Maeve during her NICU stay. This was by far the most difficult time of our lives and you all went above and beyond through detailed explanations, often time more than once and through parental support. You not only cared for her, but us as well and we cannot thank you enough for that. After 115 days, you helped to bring our baby home which would have been an impossibility without each of you. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
From, 
Christianna and Sam Leary on behalf of baby Maeve


Dear Dr. John Nicholson,
Thank you so much for your kindness, concern and great bedside manner during my stay at Crouse in September 2021 – before, during and after my procedure to have a third of my colon removed because of cancer. I had confidence in your skill as a doctor and felt very at ease. Thankfully, it was caught in good time (stage 1) with no need for chemo, for which I was so thankful. So, thanks to you and the great staff at Crouse, my stay was, shall I say, much appreciated.
From, 
Carol J. Ritschel


Dear Dr. Benjamin Sadowitz,
Thank you so much for taking such great care of Mary! You went above and beyond to give her the best care possible. Knowing you were watching over her made the whole situation easier for us. We appreciate your efforts more than you know.
From,
The Beck Family (Mary, Jim, Laura, Thomas and Stephen)


Dear Dr. Albert Tripodi,
You are a great doctor as your father before you!
From,

Dear Dr. Anil George,
