You all continue to impress me, not only with your knowledge, professional demeanor, and skill, but also with compassion and kindness. You treat me like I'm human, not just "one of the patients." Its sorta like if we were to bump into one another at a grocery store or a community sports event you might stop to speak personally with me instead of merely offering me a nod with a slight smile.
