Dear Dr. Brown,

You helped me a couple years ago get the diagnosis I’ve been searching for for years by referring me to Dr. Dean Matsuda. You called me and talked with me on the phone on your own dime. You read all my information and long story. At the time I thought I had either a sports hernia or osteitis pubis. It turned out to be hip FAI. This is unheard of for me in the medical industry — what you did, helping a complete stranger with profiting from it. You have literally saved my life as I am almost a couple years after surgery with all my major pains gone.

I just want to let you know it was you who changed my life by taking the time to help me. You are a true life saver, a real genuine altruistic person. My sister, mother and I actually had the same surgery due to this discovery. We are all feeling much better! I can’t express my gratitude enough for what you did. I cringe to think how many more years of debilitating pain (or the rest of my life) I could have been in if I hadn’t reached out to you and if you hadn’t guided me the way you did!

Thank you so much!
