Amazing Things are Happening Here
There’s no words for all that Dr. Saldinger has done for me, you know, taking care of everything. He always made me feel that everything was going to be fine.
What happened to me was a very difficult thing. I believe it happened at the right time, and I came to the right place.
Everyone felt like they were in the loop when Dr. Avgerinos came out [of surgery]. So it made me feel like he was engaged and that he cared, and he made me feel like I wanted to get better to show him that he did a great job.
I'm eternally grateful to the doctors at NewYork-Presbyterian Queens. They thought outside the box and saved my leg.
