With gratitude for your impressive concentration, sound judgements, patience in answering my questions and for showing that you wanted a good outcome. - A very small and entirely unimaginative gift because I wanted to say 'thank you'
I have nothing but admiration and thanks to Mr.Jalil's team @ManchesterREH for once again giving me the best treatment possible. Thank you.
Dear Mr. Jalil,
I write to thank you for the care and consideration you have shown towards me following the surgery on my eye. It is difficult to express adequately my gratitude and admiration for your skills and surgical expertise. Nevertheless I thank you more sincerely for "rescuing" the sight of my right eye, I was extremely fortunate.
