A Letter to Dr. Dorfman

A Letter to Dr. Dorfman

Dear Dr. Dorfman,

I wanted to take this time to express my gratitude for the many years that you have been my ophthalmologist. As a child, I remember hearing my peers in school saying they used to hate going to the eye doctor because they would always be too terrified. Luckily, I never had that issue because of your lovely staff and the way they always greeted me and my family members. As a matter of fact, it was so good that it got to the point I would eagerly wait to visit your office, although I must confess that my interests changed as I got older because going to your office meant I got excused from homework. 

Now as an adult, I look back as far as my memory reaches and I can truly say that I can’t remember walking into your office and not seeing anyone with a smile on their face.

Although you are only my ophthalmologist, I can honestly say that I am truly going to miss visiting your office and having our small conversations and explaining to me what was going on with my eyes. As an adult, I still use your analogy of my irises being shaped like a football and soccer ball to explain my blindness. Funny enough, as an adult, I am also terrified because I was hit with the realization that this will be my final office visit and the thought of seeing another ophthalmologist who isn’t you does scare me a little bit. 

All in all, I will never be able to express my thorough gratitude for the many years of service because of the fact that without your help, I would more than likely be legally blind and not be able to enjoy the beautiful things this life has to offer. I wouldn’t be able to see my nieces grow up right in front of me, I wouldn’t be able to enjoy watching something with my loved ones, and I definitely would not have been able to enjoy my high school career as a swimmer. I owe you a great portion of my life’s happiness because without you, my life would have been considerably different.

With gratitude and love,

Thomas R.
