I can look in the mirror again

Published on November 14, 2022

Hi Dr. Mofid,

In May 2011, I was involved in a bicycle accident that would forever change both my body and my life. I was riding my bicycle when I was thrust head first into a concrete sidewalk. The first time I saw myself in the mirror at the hospital, I stared back at a stranger and I realized that I didn’t have a nose. Over the next 6 months, the only thing that kept me going was the opportunity to have reconstructive surgery and one day again be able to look in the mirror and see my reflection as I knew it.

This is where my journey with you and your amazingly kind and beautiful staff came into being. There is no putting into words the gratitude and debt I feel towards you as both a gifted doctor and a compassionate and kind human being. I personally thank you and the ladies in your office for going to battle with my insurance company to obtain the needed coverage for surgery.

As a direct result of having chosen you as my reconstructive surgeon, I can look in the mirror again and begin to see a more familiar face. You and your staff hold the power to mold and shape miracles, repair bodies and faces, give light, offer reassurance to those patients like myself who have been dealt a bad hand in life and enlist your help to try to rise above it. Thank you so much Dr. Mofid and staff. Love you Guys!!
