Excerpt from a patient letter - A 32 year old man with a severe chronic pain condition
"A couple of years ago I found myself with a complex medical condition requiring difficult decisions with life changing ramifications. When I went into a deep depression my physician recommended that I see the on-site Medical Family Therapist. Her expertise was pivotal to help me and my husband focus on decisions, empower us in the face of a medical situation beyond our control, understand the doctors and their focus, the medical procedures and the long road that lay before us while maintaining a strong bond between us. Just suffice it to say - I wouldn't be here without her help. Additionally, as a couple, we now have tools and insights to maintain our solid relationship and to continue to build it with greater joy."
