To the editor:

Dear Dr. Melanie Golembiewsky,

(Plain Press, October 2022)  Thank you, Dr. Melanie Golembiewski for the professionalism in which you work. You listen to your clients. You always put their need first, to ensure they live another day healthy and vibrant.


   I’m grateful to have someone like you to help us get through this Pandemic. It takes people like you to make the world a better place.

   Thank you for caring for all my grandchildren. They think the world of you. You made them comfortable and fearless when it comes to seeing the doctor.

   There is someone’s face upon which there would be no smile of joy unless you put it there.

   Cheers to you my doctor, I celebrate the way you do your job. If it was up to me, I would give you the award of being the best doctor. Thank you for all you do.

   I want to leave you with:

   Hope is an awakening dream. Hope should forever tell us that tomorrow will be better. With hope as our beacon light, there is no room to complain.

   As long as the doctor, nurse, and the therapist care, somebody somewhere will survive.

Dear Nurse – Yatsana,

   Nurses like you are truly hands of God. I am honored and pleased to face a nurse like you. You care, serve and help. When I call and leave a message for the doctor, you call me back. I appreciate that. I just want you to know it’s the small things that mean a lot. You give a kind word and listen with concern. You’re a part of my health team that makes a difference.

   Thought for today:

   Every day you have a decision to make: Give up, give in, or give it your all. As I always say: “I’m just gonna keep it moving.” When the World says … “Give up.” Hope whispers … “Try it one more time.”

Dear Therapist – Lauren McGowan,

   I want to express my deepest gratitude for the dedicated work you do day after day. I appreciate what you did for me.

   Before coming to you I kept everything to myself — my thoughts, feelings, and concerns. You listen when I have a problem. You catch me when I am about to fall. You taught me not to compare myself to other people’s lives, for I had no idea what their journey was about.

   You taught me to be proud of who I am and not to be ashamed of how others see me. You taught me that not everyone will understand my journey, and that I should just be myself. I was a true introvert. Now, I’m well on my way to being alright with dealing with life on life’s terms.

   This brings me to some of my thoughts and a saying that I would like to share:

   On this Road called Life you have to take the good with the bad.

   Love what you got and remember what you had.

   Most people try to make everyone happy, but they realize they were forgetting someone – themselves.

   My family and I are very thankful for the health care at West 117th Neighborhood Family Practice. Every cloud has a silver lining, and the silver lining is Neighborhood Family Practice, 11709 Lorain Avenue.
