I wanted to write a short letter to express my thanks for the high level of care my mother received from two of your physicians at St Luke’s, Tempe during her treatment of osteomyelitis.

Prior to her coming to St Luke’s Wound Center, my mother, had been battling this wound on her right leg for six years. My mother had seen several doctors, and had different treatments for years with no success. That is, until a friend referred me to one of your wound specialists, Dr. Sam Nwafor.

The condition of the wound and my mother’s health prompted Dr. Nwafor to introduce me to one of his colleagues, Dr. Burt Faibisoff.

Several tests and an MRI were carried out. They explained to me the treatment options available to save my mother’s leg. With no health insurance, these doctors still worked very hard and went beyond their call of duty.

Above all, they treated her with dignity, respect and patience. Thank you St. Luke’s Wound Center and your amazing people.
