One time patient

Thanks Dr. John W Ames. 2001 I came to you at Good Sam on Montauk Hwy for help. The way you calmed a 57 year old woman with a machine so close to my face is still in my mind. You are the very best. God bless you. You for saving my life. It is 16 years and I'm alive with a negative mammogram a day ago. THANKS, I still see your kind face as you treated me. Thanks! Ever grateful patient.
