"I would like to take the opportunity to say that Dr. Metzger is a gem. You have a top-notch doctor who goes above and beyond for his patients. I personally feel like I'm his only patient. That's the kind of love he gives. I would score him higher than very good if the survey allowed it. I have seen numerous doctor within your system, and there is something very special about Dr. Metzger, and I think it's important that he knows how much I appreciate his medical abilities; his kindness and professionalism, and the ease of office visits.
