I know my story may not be exactly the same as yours, but its strikingly similar. I walked into your office as a 19 year-old college cheerleader thinking that the experience of tearing my ACL would strip me of everything I loved; however, it gave me exactly what I had been searching for, clarity that I was on the right path.
Although you probably don't remember this, you told me multiple times that, "there is a long way to go". With a 4.0 GPA after freshman year, I didn't think it would be this long and challenging to get to where I am now. And of course, I know there is still a long way to go. But I just wanted to update you that I will be applying to medical school this summer with a 3.91 GPA, a MCAT score that is still undetermined, volunteering/clinical experience and undergraduate research. Just about everything that made these few years so challenging.
Thank you again for performing my ACL surgery. Although it's a weekly occurrence for you, a couple hours changed my life. Without my experience, I can truly say I don't know if I would be even close to where I am now. Soon enough I hope to update you with the medical school I will be attending, shadow the very surgery that gave me my passion and thank you in person for everything you have given me. You have me as a life long patient!
