Hi All,
It's been awhile since I've been here and am amazed at the changes the site has undergone...but the camaraderie is still so strong. So who better to ask a ? to then my hyster sisters.

My gyn/ob who has seen me thru 3 miscarriages and 2 births, plus all the other problems/tests and surgeries leading up to a hyst. is retiring. I just saw him today and he said he will be done in sept. I have been his patient for almost 20 years. We gave each other big hugs and I was real sad driving home afterward. I've never felt sad over a dr. before. I would like to send him a great thank you note or a small gift but don't know what to say. Would it be inappropriate to give him a gift certificate to a restaurant? Shall I stick with just a thank you? I am so sad, and am surprised that I am so sad. He has been an amazing dr. and we had a great relationship. Has anyone had their dr. retire on them? Did you do anything for them?

I hope this is the right forum to post....this new look to the site has me all flustered!

thanks for any ideas

If you really feel strongly about doing something special for him, then do it. I think you would be surprised at how much it would touch him. Another idea would be to make a monetary donation in him name to the local women's shelter or the free women's services in your area. There are some sort of donation plaques or bricks that are available almost anywhere. There are many options available. It sounds like you have had quite the relationship with him. That is wonderful as many patients do not develop that type of relationship with their doctors. Good luck!

Running I think thats a great idea especially after reading quite a few posts about how others dr.'s were not thought of as highly as you do yours. Nurse's idea sounds good to me, or a donation to something that affects us women, like ovarian cancer, breat cancer, ect... in his name.

If you are looking for something for him personally, a gift card to a restaurant is good as well.

Prayers whom ever you get as your new Dr. will be as good of a relationship for you as this one has been.

It's a great idea. I personally gave my dermatologist who saved my life a laminated print of a photo with quote that I prepared which I called part of my melanoma series... He was grateful when he got it - but the next time I saw him - he told me a story of how he didn't really get the quote until something happened that changed the course of their lives...
I'm sure he'll appreciate anything you come up with.
