Dear Dr. Ettinger,
I just wanted to say thank you for your time. I would have never imagined that I would have learned so much from you. You opened your knowledge to me. I think that visit was just what I needed to get me started on my road to becoming a chiropractor. I am really looking forward to starting a practice very similar to yours and hopefully one day I will be able to pass down my knowledge to a young student like you have done for me. Thank you again for your hospitality.
…I know you made a difference in one young man’s life, Cory Singer, that guy I brought to your office when you were in Tustin. He is completing his chiropractor training and will be going into practice within a year. At his wedding, he told me while giving me a big hug to “say thank you to Marcus”.
The college counseling center I founded in 2002 is going strong. Speaking of a decision made from the heart; even my wife was upset because our early success meant I would retire earlier than I had planned, at some considerable financial sacrifice for us. And, to top it off, I had just been named Orange County “Teacher of the Year”, which meant the District wanted at least a couple more years out of me….
