Dear Dr.Kogan,
Please consider this a note of thanks, rather than a letter to be read into my file. I’m sleeping, pretty much every night, often all the way through the night, and it has changed my life — so thank you for the time you have taken to evaluate my family and personal medical history, our discussions, your theory about a genetic mutation that might be contributing to my sleeplessness, and your suggestion for remedies.
It truly has been years since I have slept comfortably on a regular basis, and I can’t tell you the number of doctors to whom I have noted this problem. Sleeplessness has made me constantly exhausted, not clear in my thinking or speaking, anxious, irritable, and very often, just not a nice person.  I cannot tell you what a difference this simple fix – as you put it – has made in my life.  So, thank you again, you have helped make me a new person, for which I thank you virtually every day!
Gratefully, Carelee P.
