Dr. Kim, Dr. Orloff, and Dr. Evans,
Thank you so much for taking such good care of Jonnie. She is doing so much better now.
Aside from genuinely caring for Jonnie, it has been your due diligence in delivering the best integrated care possible and always seeking out the right combination of meds that has kept all that scary Lupus activity in check. You didn't miss a beat in making those important calls at the right time----in getting the right blood tests at the right time to diagnose her, checking her lung and heart area with echocardiagrams, watching her kidneys for damage, giving her the cytoxan at the right moment, and deciding when to admit her to the hospital.
Her recent hospital stay with Pneumonia demonstrated that you applied the right urgency in checking her lungs through a Bronchoscopy and in searching for the best antibiotic that would finally have an effect on the Pneumonia. It was brilliant that you decided on a PICC Line in the event anything goes wrong. We were confident that she was getting the best possible care at all times.
Thank you so much for saving her life. We are so fortunate and grateful that you are her doctors. We thank you for all that you do every day to save Jonnie’s life and the lives of all your patients.
John and Lucy Liang
