Dear Drs. Joseph Battaglia and Matthew Gorman,
I want to thank you so much for saving my life on Nov. 9, 2020. I had a full cardiac arrest in the ER. I was resuscitated and had an emergency cardiac cath and stent placement. I was gone and you brought me back to life. Thank you so much!
John F. Houck Jr., MD

You are never too busy to take my calls when I am stressed and feeling that at times I need support. Your gentle bedside calm manner is soothing – subsides my fears.

Dear Dr. James Blanchfield,
Dr. Blanchfield has been our internist for over 20 years. He has taken on our mother as well as our children after they had outgrown their pediatrician. We have been truly blessed to have him provide care to our family. He is a wonderful physician – always taking time to listen, provide sound advice and most importantly, keep us healthy! We could not have asked for a better doctor when we moved to Syracuse. Thank you, Dr. Blanchfield!
The Coggiola Family

Dear Drs. W Douglas Bunn and John Nicholson,
Thank you for your endless care and concern for the last 25 years since my first hemangiopericytoma diagnosis. Thanks to your efforts I have been able to celebrate my own second marriage, three children’s weddings and the birth of seven grandchildren. Here’s to another 25!

Dear Dr. Maria Cicciarelli,
Dr. Cicciarelli is amazing! She is always so kind and caring and always makes you feel good about yourself. She turned my baby when she was breech and she really made the experience bearable. Thank you so much for all you do!
Brittany Anthony

Dear Dr. Michael Clarke,
I had a right hip arthroscopy with labral repair on Nov. 13, 2020. Having surgery during the COVID-19 pandemic was nerve-wracking, but I’m so glad I opted to have it when I did, despite everything occurring at the time. Without you, Dr. Clarke, I would not be walking and moving completely pain-free and thriving at four months post-surgery. My hip has never felt more strong and solid than it does now with the brand new labrum. I cannot thank you enough for everything you did for me. You are amazing!
Kendall Smith

Dear Dr. Victor Croglio,
Thank you for all the years of great care. You’re compassionate, friendly, super smart, but most importantly super caring. Thanks again!
Duke Kinney

Dear Dr. Thomas Hartzheim,
You are an exceptional human being and an outstanding doctor. Beginning with a birthday song as I came out of surgery and throughout years of care, you have encouraged and uplifted me, explained and even diagrammed complicated concepts and helped with difficult decisions. Your sense of humor made the whole process bearable. I am grateful for your friendship and service.
Evelyn Rollins

Dear Dr. Ross Moquin,
Thanks for your excellent care of me and my troublesome lower spine.
Judy Toner

Dear Dr. Eileen Stone,
A long overdue note of gratitude for the wonderful care you have given me for two decades. Your ability to remember every detail of my medical history and guide me through the unevitbale changes as one ages continually astounds me. You are truly and gifted and compassionate physician. I am blessed to have you in my corner.

Dear Dr. Albert Tripodi,
Like his dad before him, Dr. Tripodi has served our family well. Starting with my father and continuing to this day, his caring, compassionate service along with his competency has served us above and beyond! Thanks, you are very much appreciated.
