Hi Dr. Raffy,

Angie and I want to “thank you”.

We searched high and low for a doctor we felt comfortable with and you fit the bill.

She really loves her results so far! See you next week.

I love you Doctor Karamanoukian

Dear Dr. Karamanoukian,

It was such a pleasure meeting you last Thursday! You have a gorgeous facility, and such a warm, welcoming staff. It was everything my sister Barbara said it was.

I enjoyed our conversation about hypnosis and am very interested in speaking to you further about working with you, adding benefit to your practice.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions you might have or to set up a meeting.

Dr. Kamanoukian,

3 years ago you performed surgery on our son’s nose after a terrible fall he took at LAX. His name is Jack and he is now 5 years old. We wanted you to see the amazing results of your work. You have an incredible gift and we are still so grateful for your time and generosity you have us.

We will never forget the amazing staff and how you swooped us in and took care of Jack without hesitation. Because of you, he has a beautiful nose and you can hardly tell he ever had injured it. Thank you all again for taking such good care of all of us. We will never forget your kindness.

Dr. Raffy,

It was such a pleasure meeting you. I appreciate all you did and the many kind words about my daughters. I want to thank you sincerely for doing my eye surgery. I am aware of how busy you were, yet you changed your schedule to accommodate me.

I am healing nicely, going through many stages and colors and looking forward to my new look.

Thank you.

Dr. Raffy,

Wishing you and your family a healthy and happy New Year!

I wanted to thank you for everything that you have done for me and my family over the years.

The other day when you took care of my face you went above and beyond and I cant express how thankful I am.

You are an amazing physician, husband, father and friend. I am lucky to have you in my life!

Dear Raffy,

Thank you so much you did an amazing job! My confidence has soared. I am recommending you to everyone. I am so sorry I was a troublesome patient I was just so scared. You restored my faith in people completely!!! Thank you.

Dr. Raffy,

I am very pleased and happy with the results of my surgery. You are certainly a gifted surgeon; but above all, a remarkably patient man. I truly thank you for what you did for me.

Dear Dr. Raffy,

Thank you for being so gracious and treating us like part of your family. You're such a down to earth caring person. We enjoyed visiting your office, its very nice. Your mother’s art work is amazing, she is very talented.

You did a great job on the Doctor’s show. We were hoping to come back stage and see you. I had this statue for you. They are pretty rigid there though.

We heard you on the radio in Buffalo, nice pitch, it sounded good.

Well we truly appreciate your sincere concern for us. Thank you for the vein treatments while I was there. Looking forward to seeing you again, hoping you will come back into town. Our best wishes to you and your family.

Dr. Raffy,

I want to thank you very much for my surgery. This present is a small gift of gratitude that I have. Thank you very much and God bless you and your family, always.

Dear Dr. K,

You are an answer for my prayers. Thank you for your kindness to me. I cannot thank you enough! You will never know what meeting you has meant to me. I never wanted to look in the mirror. I left your office, went home and kept looking in the mirror. Thanks so much!

Dearest Dr. Raffy,

I cant thank you enough for everything you’ve done for me AND my family and friends. We are all extremely happy with your work and constantly sing your praises. You are the “bomb”!!

You are an exceptional surgeon. Though more importantly, for me, you are genuinely kind, warm and a caring person.... And you make me laugh.

Thank you!!

Thank you so much for your kindness and care!

Dear Dr. Raffy,

Just a note of thank for taking care of all my friends, and me.

We all appreciate your surgical talents, and the warm and friendly atmosphere you provide in your office... you actually make it fun to come in for cosmetic procedures. Thank you again for giving me the free peel. See you soon.

Thank you for all your wonderful care!!

Dear Dr. Karamanoukian,

We want to send our heartfelt thanks for your contribution to the Haiti relief effort. The supplies you donated were used by our doctors as well as distributed to hospitals and organizations such as World Vision, University of Miami Field Hospital and the Leogane Orphanage. Your generous donation has made a direct impact on the people of Haiti and the Medical teams stationed there.

Again, we thank you for your support of this effort.

Dear Raffy,

I want to express my sincerest gratitude to you for all the time spent making my legs not only feel great but look great too!!

I also want to thank you and the staff for making me feel cared for and well informed. I will continue to refer as many people as possible.

But mostly thank you for all your welcoming smiles, your sense of humor and how you make people feel special.

Please take care of yourself and may God always bless you.

Dr. Karamanoukian,

Thank you so much for everything you have done for me over the years and for treating me like family from day one.

Thank you!

Dear Dr. Karamanoukian,

Thank you very much for your attention and kindness. Your generosity shall be rewarded. Let me know if I can help you in any way.

Thanks again.

Dear Dr. Karamanoukian,

Initially I was impressed by your reputation as a brilliant surgeon, and your enthusiasm and passion for your work. I have not been disappointed. As the results of my neck and facelift surgery have evolved I am in awe of what you have done!

Thank you for listening to what I wanted and carefully crafting such a beautiful result, well beyond what I could ever have imagined.

You have my gratitude and highest recommendation.

Dear Dr. Karamanoukian,

It’s been quite a year and a half, hasn’t it? I cannot believe I’m already getting ready to leave for grad school! It just seems like yesterday we met for the interview in your office.

I just want to express my sincerest gratitude and appreciation for being an awesome mentor/teacher/friend during my time interning at the office. I will never forget all the surgeries and procedures I was able to assist in/observe. The patients I met, our joking around (you teasing me) and the overall experience!

I also just want to say thank you for being a role model for being a medical professional. I only hope to be as great a clinician as you! In closing though, this is not goodbye, but until we meet again! Thanks for everything again and I will visit when I can!

Dear Dr. Raffy,

Thank you so much for all you have done for me. Without exception, you are the very best in what you do, and you have the greatest team to support you!

You have my eternal gratitude and appreciation!

Dr. Raffy,

I cannot ‘Thank You’ enough for making me beautiful again!

Dear Dr. Raffy,

Thank you very much for my lips. You really did drop out of heaven as far as I am concerned. I can never thank you enough for your patience and understanding of my situation at the time. You restored my life and confidence if there is ever anything I can do for you don’t hesitate I will always be here. Love to you and your family.

Dear Dr. Raffy,

Hope this note finds you, your family and staff all doing well. ‘The Girls’ I have sent to you just love you and your work. They look great!! Keep up the good work. Take care.

Dear Dr. Karamanoukian,

I would like to thank you for being the very definition of what a doctor should be. It is very hard to come across people like you. I really felt that you truly, 100% established a doctor-patient relationship with me from my first appointment with you. You took your time to explain unfamiliar and even familiar concepts to me. Many doctors are always in a rush and don’t really give you the chance to explain your situation and then basically rush you out the door. Yes it’s understandable that doctors have many patients to see within a given amount of time (whatever that time is, which usually feels like 5 minutes). So when do you get to exert patience, compassion as well as proper communication? I am not trying to put down the physician community at all, especially since I am aspiring physician; but through all my experiences with physicians, they have been disappointing. But you, Dr. K are very well known and your ethics is very commendable but one thing I admire is your modesty and humbleness. You are quite popular but the work you do is extraordinary, especially the way you treat your patients. I definitely want to be like you when I become a doctor. Hey, who knows maybe I will be a plastic surgeon, haha, just kidding, you think I talk too much and you are probably right! Thank you for taking that horrendous *** out of my earlobe even though I kept asking you if I would be okay, I trusted you from the day I met you. Your demeanor and how you carried yourself at our first meeting immediately told me to trust you. I appreciate and admire that part of your character. Please don’t ever change. The world most certainly needs more people and doctors like you. I thank the Lord for you and leading me to find the right doctor to meet my needs.

Dear Dr. Karamanoukian,

Thank you so much for touching up my lip and chin areas with the CO2 laser. The results are amazing! I’m so excited! I can now proudly wear lipstick and not have it bleed into lines. Thank you for being so kind to me and always making me feel welcome. I have referred many people to your office and will continue to do so. You and your staff are awesome!

Dear Dr. Raffy,

Thank you so much for taking such great care of my finger on such short notice. It was a pleasure meeting you!

Happy Holidays to you Doctor! Thank you for all you do and have done for this family! Thank you again and take care.

Dr. Karamanoukian,

It’s been a year since my first treatment. I am so happy with my amazing results and I’m just so happy to have found you. I am grateful for everything you have taught me, I can’t wait to see what the future holds.

Dear Dr. Raffy,

It was great meeting you last Monday with Dr. Inglove (Herbie). Thanks for the great chemical peel. The new me is coming to the surface as the old peels away! I’ve been singing your praises and hope my clients will be calling you soon. Take Care.

Dearest Dr. Raffy,

I would like to thank you and wish you a Very Merry Christmas and a happy New Year and wish all the best to your family.

Dear Raffy,

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your kindness, generosity, and amazing work. I would have bought you a pair of Gucci shoes, but I think it would be easier if you picked something yourself.

Dear Dr. Karamanoukian,

Thank you so much for coming on and doing a great job. As always, you were a pleasure to work with, and the segment went wonderfully. We appreciate all of your hard work. Thank you!

Dear Dr. Raffy,

Just a note to tell you I was thinking about you. When I look in the mirror and see my beautiful stomach I know it’s because of you. I’m so proud of it that I too show it off once in a while. Thank you for giving me that washboard look!

Dr. Raffy,

We feel so fortunate and blessed to have met you. Thank you so for all that you do for our family. We wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year!

Kelly & Candice,

Thank you for making every experience comfortable and welcoming! You two bring a special light to the office. Thank you! Merry Christmas!

Dr. Karamanoukian & Kelly,

I wanted to thank you again! I am healing just fine and looking forward to the results. If there is ever anything I can do to show my gratitude please let me know.
