MD Referral Letters

June 22, 2006

To Whom it May Concern:

This letter is written is support of David Leidich. In my experience, David is a competent, caring professional who pracitices chiropractic medicine. He is mature, bright, and clesarly cares about his patients. He interacts well with people from all walks of life, and has outstanding organizational skills.

I have been impressed with David's interpersonal skills, keen intellect and willingness to work with patients to individualize care. I had the unfortunate experience of developing an acute lumbar strain. I personally utilized Dr Leidich's services andwas impressed with the entire process. He is not critical of allopathic medicine and will send a patient to an allopathic or osteopathic physician when needed. His practice is complimentary to traditional allopathic medicine.

I am happy to recommend Dr. Leidich to you. He is a fine person and has wonderful personal characteristics. If you wish to discuss this recommendation further, please do not hesitate to contact me.

To Whom it May Concern:

I am a physician in the area specializing in Sports Medicine. I have utilized Dr. Leidich's services both personally and professionally wit excellent results. I highly recommend him to anyone with musculoskeletal and spinal issues.

Professionally, I have referred many patients to Dr. Leidich over the past 3 years. The majority have been positive results. Most patients are reluctant to try alternative care. They wish to utilize other modalities of treatment first, including NSAIDS, muscle relaxants, physical therapy, MRI with epidural steroid injections (ESI's), and pain medication. When these treatment options failed to relieve their symptoms, they wanted to try alternative care like chiropractic or acupuncture prior to considering surgery.

Dr. Leidich's treatment plan has shown great success in these patients. They avoided surgery and have had significant improvement in their pain and radicular symptoms. He caters to each individual's needs and provides the necessary care without added costs of supplements or equipment. The patients love him and all have reported a positive, caring experience.

Dr Leidich also has the willingness to refer to a physician if he is unable to help his patients. He recognizes when the patient's needs go beyond his abilities. He will refer for medical treatment whether for medication or evaluation for ESI's or surgery. He also encourages chiropractic treatment in conjunction with physical therapy. The well being of the patient is his goal.

In conclusion, I would highly recommend the chiropractic services of Dr. David Leidich. Quality care and patient satisfaction are provided at the Chiropractic and Wellness Center in Durham, North Carolina.

RE: Dr. David S. Leidich

Chiropractic Physician

To Whom it May Concern:

It is my pleasure to write this letter of recommendation for Dr. David Leidich. I recently sustained an injury to my neck, upper back, shoulder and clavicle, while slalom skiing. I chose Dr. Leidich for care of these injuries. Dr. Leidich is an intelligent and compassionate Chiropractic Physician and seems to truly care about his patients. Within just a few treatment sessions, I had significant relief of pain and increased mobility. This treatment helped tremendously without the need for narcotics or muscle relaxants.

As an Emergency Physician with over 13 years of experience, and an Osteopathic Physician with previous training in manipulative medicine, I think we often overlook the importance of physical therapy and manipulative modalities in treating patients with acute injuries and even chronic pain.

Based on Dr. Leidich's superb Chiropractic skills and his excellent patient rapport and interpersonal skills, I would like to highly recommend him for the care of any of your patients with acute injury or chronic neck/back pain problems. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact me.
