I'd like to share a letter from the mother of one of my younger patients that was treated for Lyme Disease:

 

Dear Dr. Sult,

 

I would like to start out this letter by thanking you for saving my daughter’s life.  I have thought about you many times over the last 2 years and have felt I needed to write this letter for a long time.  I’m not sure if you remember Grace as one of your patients fighting Lyme disease.  She came to you when she was about 7 or 8.  That is when you were still at Williams Integracare.  I was never one for expressing my feelings openly to you about how much I appreciated you and the care you gave my family!  I hope you realize you have a special gift for working with people.  You are the best listener I have ever met in my life.  I have referred many people to you over the last years and I am sure they had the greatest care, just as we did.

 

I want you to know how well Grace is doing.  We are still noticing improvements as we look back over each six month period.  We still find ourselves saying things like, “She could not do that six months ago.”  My months and years all run together but I believe she has not seen you since 2009 or 2010.  She has been off all medicine for about a 3 year period.  She is back to playing 3 sports and is just an amazing kid.  She is 13 now and an adult in a child’s body.  She found herself a job this summer and is working as an intern for a company that set up a scholarship account for her so they could pay her for her amazing work.  Her next goals are to write a book and is working on her path to go to Harvard!  Whatever she does with her life, we are so happy and thankful to God just to see her run down the basketball court and be a kid!

 

I hope you would consider doing an interview with her if she ever gets that book going!

 

Again, thank you and know how amazing you are!

 

Jackie
