“Dr. Torpey, Hope all is well with you! I wanted to get in touch with you to give you a little update and let you know how I’m doing. Working with Drew and Basil has been fantastic to say the least. Turns out I had a lot of muscle imbalances that went unaddressed. They taught me so much and have helped me with the majority of my issues. It’s amazing how quickly the sensation I was feeling of an overly tight anterior capsule disappeared as my imbalances were corrected. I still have a fair amount of work to do, but finally seeing real substantial progress has me very optimistic for the future. I even started lightly working out again. My shoulders feel much more symmetrical and my exercises feel normal again. Things are finally starting to look up for me and I couldn’t be happier. I want to thank you for everything you’ve done for me. I’m sure I drove you crazy with all my questions and concerns, but what meant the most to me is that you always listened and never once made me feel stupid for asking them. I saw many doctors for my shoulder and can honestly say none of them made me truly believe that I was in the right hands the way you did. Your bedside manner and kindness were second to none and your upstanding character is one all doctors should strive to possess. Because of you, I am finally able to start living a normal, pain-free life again for the first time in over two years and I can’t thank you enough for that. It gives me comfort knowing that there is a doctor like you out there who can help the unique cases like mine, no matter how crazy the person may come off or how many questions they ask! Thanks for always listening and for everything you’ve done for me. I hope to never run into any more problems, but if I do I’ve got your number on speed-dial! Thanks again for everything Dr. Torpey,”
