Thank a Doctor or Health Care Facility

Sample Letter #1

Thank you for your kindness and good humor when stitching me up in the middle of the night last Saturday. I had heard nightmare stories about what goes on in emergency rooms, so I was grateful that my experience was so positive. I did not have to wait long, and the treatment I received was very sensitive and kind. I send my heartfelt thanks to you and the nurses who assisted.

Sample Letter #2

We wish to thank you for your efficient handling of the insurance forms for our recent visit to your hospital. As out-of-state travelers, we feared that the paperwork would be a nightmare, but your competent staff knew exactly what to do. In a surprisingly short time, they had processed the forms, and we were back on our vacation. Please give this box of chocolates to the staff at the front desk with our compliments and thanks.

All of us wish to thank you, Dr. Doe, for your kindness and wisdom during our mother's bout with meningitis. Now that she is out of danger, we think it's time to give credit where it is due. Competent, sensitive physicians like you are the prize of the medical profession. Mom can't say enough good about you. We are thankful that she will be around for a long time yet to sing your praises.
