My Surgeon

Here he is. My surgeon Dr. Weiss. We are standing next to each other and yes, he is that tall. He is such a wise, yet humble man.
One of my favorite things about him, is this little bow that he does as he leaves the room at the end of an appointment. He loves his work caring for patients, and it shows.

He has a very to-the-point way of explaining what surgery will involve. As he told us that I would loose my breast, go through chemo and possibly radiation, I felt as though he were giving me a list of things to buy at the store. He knew how to soften the blow and reassure me before I even knew I needed it. Somehow hearing that I had an aggressive form of breast cancer didn't seem that bad coming from him. He is one amazing man.


  1. Doctors can make all the diffrence. You are in good hands :)

  2. I told you that he was a great person when you told me that you were going to be seeing him. I was impressed when I did my internship with his office.

  3. And to think, I just thought you were sitting!

  4. Doctor Weiss was the on call doctor that removed Jason's appendix when it burst. He was good to us I am glad he has been good for you.
