I would like to thank Dr, Frankel and the 6th floor staff for all you have done for me while at Spaulding. Since my return in Israel, I am doing fine. I am sure the foundations of my fast recovery have been laid at Spaulding, and am very grateful for what you and your staff have done during my stay.
