Someone Special

By r5150n

I met Dr. Jennifer Grossman when she was a new rheumatologist and I was a new lupus patient. It was in the early 90's. It is now 2017 and I have been diagnosed with Breast Cancer that has spread to the bones. Dr. Grossman has always been supportive of me since we first met. I live alone with no family and my friends are elderly, retired, and live alone. Since my diagnosis Dr. Grossman has called me at home to see how I am managing. I worked as an RN for almost 50 years and I have never experienced a physician do this. She is not only the most thorough physician I have ever met but also the most compassionate. My friends who are also RNs agree with me. You need a category for exceptional physicians and I nominate her to be the first one designated.

Thank you, Dr. Jennifer Grossman for being a part of life.
