Patient who had undergone reconstructive surgery for breast cancer



Dear Dr. Niazi,


There’s no way I can ever thank you for being such an awesome doctor. You’ve stuck by us through the tough times and the good ones. You’ve always been honest, patient & encouraging. I’m extremely lucky to be taken care of by you. My whole family is. You’ve taken extra special care of Joe & Kirsten as well as me. Thank you so much for the phenomenal work you did on my leg. I know I could have lost it, & now its almost as good as new. I’m extremely grateful.


With warm regards,


Mary Beth, Joe & Kirsten

John & I want to thank you for taking such good care of our daughter, (Dyan). We left for home Wednesday, knowing that she was in such care. She looks so good. You are indeed a very caring doctor.


It was a pleasure meeting you. And we want to thank you again.

Reconstructive surgery for child with severe Cleft lip deformity



Dear Dr. Niazi,


It was wonderful to see you yesterday and, thanks in large part to you, how wonderfully Susan is doing! We feel tremendous gratitude to you (as we hope you realize)!


Following is a copy of the letter we spoke about that I am sending to Antonio C. Novello, New York State Health Commisioner; Tommy G. Thompson, Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services; and Richard F. Corlin, M.D., President of the American Medical Association. I will certainly let you know what (if any) responses I get.


I spoke yesterday afternoon with the secretary of my gastroenterologist to arrange for my next colonoscopy (having had colon polyps removed some years ago). One thing led to the next in the conversation, and it turned out that she – Cindy S – was your patient in 1999 following a terrible auto accident. Small world! We are all members of your “fan club”!


Many thanks again, from Susan and me! Best wishes for a new year of good health, peace and joy!

Reconstructive surgery for a massive wound



Dear Dr. Niazi,


Thank you doesn’t come close to describing my gratitude for all you have done for me. Not only are you an outstanding doctor, but you are a wonderful person.


The first time I met you was in Dr. Ashikari’s office, I had just been told that I had breast cancer. Dr. Ashikari didn’t hesitate in recommending you for the reconstruction. You were and always have been compassionate and supportive. You gave me hope that I would get through this and indeed I have! Because of your gift as a surgeon you have made me feel “whole”.


You are the best and I will never forget you or what you have done.
