Dear Dr. Ratnoff, It has been said that great leaders build their lives upon simple principles. I have seen and am aware on which you have built your business, honesty, trust, courage, and caring for the ones that can not talk, either voice their opinion. In this motion business, it is easy to fall into the world of just doing it for the money. Dr. Ratnoff, you are the pillar of dignity, distinction, value, and powerfully intended integrity. You are like a tree, a mighty oak. You stand for so many like a tree planted by the streams of water with leaves that do not wither. Many who know you have witness the fruits of your labor. My dog, and her liver have been in your shade even protected by your presence knowing you would know how to treat any of their medical problems. We are in ever thankful and grateful for you, and proud to call you our Veterinarian.
