    Dr. Rubinstein, le agradezco todo el tiempo que tuvo en el telefono confirmandome y explicando el tratamiento relacionado con la degeneracion macular humeda que tiene mi mama, Margarita B., en el ojo derecho, y la degeneracion macular seca en su ojo izquierdo. Iniciando el tratamiento con su ojo derecho, hoy diciembre 21 tiene la cita con usted a las 4:30 pm. mi hermana la acompana. Confio en Dios que usted haga con su experiencia un cambio en la vista de mi mama. Segun los resultados. Confio en ser su paciente en el momento dado (yo quisiera tener un oftalmologo de confianza) ya que el que tenia aqui en Traverse City, no sirvio. Gracias, Margarita L.
